MUAY THAI

Muay Thai (meaning Thai boxing) is a combat sport of Thailand that uses stand-up striking along with  clinching techniques (a form of stand up wrestling). It is known as the "art of eight limbs" as it is characterised by the combined use of fists, elbows, knees, and shins.

 

Muay Thai is one of the most effective striking martial arts as evidenced by its growing profile and popularity alongside the growth of mixed martial arts. Our Muay Thai program offers state of the art equipment with a highly skills and talented instructor.
