Muay Thai (Thai Boxing) is a style of kickboxing and the national sport of Thailand. The basic offensive techniques in Muay Thai use hands, elbows, kicks and knees to punch and kick the opponent. To hinder an opponent for both offensive and defensive purposes, small amounts of stand-up grappling are used: the clinch. Defensively, the shoulders, arms, and legs are used to thwart the attacker from successfully executing his techniques. Almost all techniques in Muay Thai use theentire body movement, rotating the hip with each kick, punch, and block.
At Sudbury MMA, our Muay Thai program is broken down into distinct classes to provide the best training possible from the novice to the pro-fighter. Our BasicMuay Thai program includes the Conditioning Class and the Technique Class. The Conditioning Class focuses on training methods to develop a well conditioned body. This might include: skipping, push-ups, crunches, and bag work as well as other conditioning exercises. The Technique Class will focus primarily on punching and kicking techniques, as well prepare the student for an Advanced Program.
The majority of our students have no experience when they begin their training and never compete. Their goals include trying something new, getting a great workout, meeting new people etc…. We do however, have a competition team that regularly competes in both kickboxing and Muay Thai (K1). This is completely optional to our students and no pressure is ever put on students to compete.
