"SHEFFIELD'S ONLY COMMUNITY MUAY THAI GYM"

ALL Classes

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).
