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.

Beginner Class – This class is a fun basic introduction to Renzo Gracie Muay Thai where students learn how to kick, punch, use their knees and elbows, in addition to learning how to hold pads and work with partners. Through simple but effective 2-4 strike combinations, during 2-3 minute rounds, new students are introduced to our formula of consistency, pad work, combinations, tempo and most important safety.

Intermediate Level Class – This class operates on the same format as the beginner class but at a much faster pace with longer rounds and more complex combinations.

Kickboxing class consist of High-Intensity Intervals of sparing, hitting pads, mitts, bags, and calisthenics (cardio Kickboxing).  Weight loss, muscle gains and increase flexibility, is a given for most new students. A typical class could see students burn 8 or more calories a minute while building power and flexibility.
