The Sheffield Thai-Boxing Gym, home of Wicker Camp, was founded in 1977 by Mick Mullaney in the Wicker area of Sheffield and operated as a non-profitmaking, charitable organisation for many years. In 1989 the gym in the Wicker burnt down and Mick lost everything. Mick and his wife Trix March found new premises and over the last 18 years have dedicated their lives to creating one of the most successful Thai-Boxing camps in the country.
The Gym is dedicated to teaching authentic MuayThai, and operates as a full-time community facility which offers classes, courses, seminars and private tuition. It is currently one of the oldest and biggest Thai-Boxing camps in the U.K., and boasts the most champions of any Thai-Boxing gym in this country!!!
It is a full member of the WMC (World MuayThai Council), the world governing body for Thai-Boxing in Thailand and the UKMF (The United Kingdom MuayThai Federation), the UK governing body. All our Instructors have years of experience, are all qualified to teach Thai-Boxing and hold Professional Indemnity Insurance Certificates. The gym ensures that all students hold affiliated Licence Books that provide sport insurance cover and records of gradings, awards and competitions.
The Gym comprises a massive 3000 sq.ft. with a complete range of “no frills” facilities. This Gym is not a sanitised corporate fitness establishment you might see in the city centre; you’ll know that you are in a traditional pro Gym when you smell the boxing liniment as you walk up the stairs. We cater for the complete Beginner through to Instructor level and have classes for adults and children.
Our main gym comprises; large platform boxing ring, fully matted training area, a large variety of different punch bags, speedball, floor to ceiling ball, wall pads, clinchwork dummies, BobXL, Behemoth bag, Thai pads, belly pads and much, much more. We also have a separate weight training room with bench press, lat pulldown, cable pulley, T-bar, dipping bars, heavy duty pull up bar, incline ab bench, hyperextention, leg extention/curl, leg press, calf machine, and an extensive assortment of free weights and dumbbells. Our small private gym is available for students who want total privacy during their training session and offers 450sq.ft. matted area with punch bags and pads. We have separate male and female changing rooms with shower and wc., comfortable lounge/reception area which offers hot and cold drinks and snacks, TV, dvd and video facilities and has a well stocked equipment shop.
