Widely considered to be the most devastating striking sport in the world, Muay Thai teaches the use of all 8 striking points: fists, elbows, knees, and shins. Because of the versatility of this sport, most high level mixed martial artists have adopted this art as their striking discipline of choice. This class will demonstrate basic techniques of Muay Thai and sharpen those fundamental skills via intense drilling utilizing such training equipment as Thai pads, focus mitts, and heavy bags. While heavy sparring will not be conducted during this course, Muay Thai training does require light contact drills and cooperative sparring for those that feel comfortable participating in such activities. This class is welcomed and encouraged to all levels of students, even those looking for more fitness based training. No member will be forced or unsupervised through contact drills.
