Select The Results You Want To Achieve

What to Expect in a Typical Muay Thai Class

Our classes start with a group warm up, varying between jump rope, foot work drills, and shadow boxing. We then move forward with instructed partner drills on pads, or with gloves and shin guards. If you do not have gloves to start, we have some you can borrow while trying out class! The class ends with the option to continue to sharpen your technique, with bag work, and sparring, if you choose.

Our Goal For Our Students

Our goal for our students is to over time produce conscious knowledge of good form and striking techniques. We aim to build a strong foundation in all of our students. We focus on the importance of good footwork, skill retention, partner pad holding skills, and aiming to master a variety of striking techniques.

What is Muay Thai?

Muay Thai, which originates from Thailand, is also referred to as kickboxing. In our Muay Thai program, you will learn the basic techniques of how to throw proper punches, kicks, knees, and elbows. Our focus for our students is practicing the learned technique with proper form to ensure safety, while at the same time, getting in a good workout and having fun!

“Do I Have Spar?”

Sparring, or “live contact training” is NOT a requirement of our Muay Thai program. Sparring is completely optional and varies depending on your goals. Sparring is for people who want to utilize the skills they have acquired more realistically. Full sparring gear is required to participate in live Muay Thai training, which includes gloves, shin guards, head gear, mouth guard, and cup. Students must be training consistently for a few months, prior to partaking in this activity if they choose.

Benefits of Training Muay Thai

Training Muay Thai has a great variety of benefits! Not only is Muay Thai a fun, full-body workout, you will also leave with quality, realistic, self-defense techniques. Training Muay Thai is great for increasing your cardiovascular conditioning, overall fitness, weight loss, anxiety and stress relief, as well as, building confidence in your capabilities all around.

    I started going to Ultimate MMA a few years ago and I am a completely different person now than I was back then. I'm more confident, happier, and healthier. This gym, my fellow teammates, and coach, Andrew, are like a family to me. I always have a place to go, where I can surround myself with others who love and appreciate mixed martial arts. I've never felt like an outsider nor have I ever been treated less than an equal because I'm a woman. Actually, I feel like I get more respect from my coach and teammates because I AM a woman, who can hold her own. I train with both men and women and we are all beasts with different strengths and skills. Being a part of the UMMA family has helped me tap into the athletic ability I always knew I had but was too shy and self-conscious to unleash. My self-esteem and feelings of self worth have become much better since I found my home away from home. I love this gym!

    Rob Rolston

    Ultimate MMA is by far one of the best places to learn mixed martial arts. All of the instructors are great, friendly, patient and have a real gift of teaching. Being able to train and learn from Amateur and Professional fighters is an amazing opportunity for anyone wanting to learn mixed martial arts. Whether you just want to learn some jiu jitsu, wrestling, boxing, kickboxing, or just get a really great workout I highly recommend Ultimate MMA.
