Muay Thai, The Art of Eight Limbs
Muay Thai is a martial art from Thailand referred to as the “Art of Eight Limbs” because it makes use of punches, kicks, elbows, and knee strikes, thus using the eight “points of contact.” Muay Thai is an excellent form of self-defense that enhances one’s flexibility, stamina, strength, and speed. With practices, an individual develops confidence, self-discipline, and a positive attitude. Students will learn proper form, stance, footwork, as well as the technique of basic punches, kicks, knee, and elbow strikes used in Muay Thai.
Each class begins with calisthenics and conditioning drills. The classes have a friendly and motivating atmosphere to help develop you both physically and mentally. Safety is a top priority at ASRBJJ and proper control is emphasized during training.
To accommodate your busy schedule, we offer classes several days throughout the week at different times. Students must purchase separately boxing gloves, shin pads, and a mouthpiece. Appropriate for ages 10 years old and older. Please look on our Schedule above for times and Seminars.
