Muay Thai Kickboxing Classes at the Bronx Martial Arts Academy

What is Muay Thai?

Muay Thai is a combat sport of Thailand that uses stand-up striking along with various clinching techniques. This physical and mental discipline is known as “the art of eight limbs” because it is characterized by the combined striking use of fists, elbows, knees, shins, being associated with a good physical preparation that makes a full-contact fighter very efficient.

While most exercises focus on strength training, Muay Thai Kickboxing is about gaining power through explosive movements. This focus on power also leads to considerable improvements in flexibility, range of motion and balance.
