Adult Beginner Classes
Our exciting new Beginners classes are specifically designed for the Beginner to Thai-Boxing. This class is a complete introduction to MuayThai (Thai-Boxing) for those with no prior experience. All classes are progressive, which means you can work at a pace that suits you. No-one will ask you to do anything you can’t cope with or that you feel uncomfortable about doing. We want you to have a great time & our Instructors know you will learn better that way.
We’ll teach you basic fighting stance, authentic Thai footwork, how to punch, kick , knee and use your elbows exactly like the pro Thai fighters do in Thailand. We’ll also teach you the best defensive system ever devised.
Each week you’ll learn a different aspect of Thai-Boxing, might be a punch like jab or cross, or one of the devastating Thai kicks using your shin ! Our Instructors will teach you the proper mechanics of each technique, how to develop power, speed and deadly accuracy. You’ll definitely notice a massive improvement in your fitness.
Thai-Boxing will make you will feel stronger and more confident, you will also develop more speed and stamina (you’ll have bags of energy). The flexibility training you will do as part of your class will improve your posture and enable your body to move in ways you didn’t think possible.
The Thai way of self-defence is second to none. All fighting methods acknowledge Thai-Boxing as the King of ALL Martial Arts. You will learn how to defend yourself against all forms of un-armed attack, using simple methods that have been tried & tested over centuries, (eventually you will also learn “OLD STYLE” Muay Thai – the very deadly Art of Siamese Combat, which incorporates chokes, throws, grappling, nerve centres & pressure points).
Monday Wednesday Friday 8pm – 9:30pm
Intermediate / Advanced Classes
These classes are by far our most popular here at Wicker Cmap. They are also the most challenging and difficult of all our classes, mixing more complicated Muay Thai skills with intense padwork, conditioning and sparring.
The syllabus is full of dynamic Muay Thai techniques, advanced clinchwork, footwork, tricks and feints, complicated counter attacks and devastating fighting combinations.
Please Note: only students that have been graded or assessed to this level are eligible to train in this class. Many of the students in the intermediate and advanced syllabus have been training here at Wicker Camp for many years.
Tuesday and Thursday 6:30-8pm
These energy-packed classes are the ultimate personal coaching program for your children, designed for kids between 5 – 15 years. Learning Muay Thai is excellent for self-defence, losing weight or building up.
For the kids it’s an exciting journey of discovery that teaches basic Muay Thai technique, develops key aspects such as flexibility, strength and co-ordination with a main aim to improve general fitness. There is a strong element of fun and enjoyment in the classes and we try to encourage independence, responsibility and develop confidence through specific Muay Thai activities.
Its core is based on the key Martial Arts principles of discipline, respect, integrity and trust. Issues such as bullying, healthy life style choices and stranger danger are addressed by building self confidence, and developing knowledge and understanding about life skills.
The classes always have a minimum of 2 experienced instructors with children being continually monitored to ensure progression through a structured grading syllabus.
