Muay Thai is a form of kickboxing that unites traditional Thai kickboxing techniques, including knees and elbows, with western style boxing.
Muay Thai is a powerful form of self-defence and a form in which the necessary skills to attack and defend can be learned quite quickly and provides an exciting alternative method of fitness – rapidly burning fat, toning muscle and increasing flexibility whilst building self-confidence along the way.
BJC Muay Thai provides students with a system that provides effective self defence applications combined with competitive and sporting components.
The syllabus also includes a grading system, similar to the system used in most martial arts. This grading system is used to distinguish between the various levels attained by individual students. The grading system also provides students with feedback on their progress and development whilst also providing them with achievable goals.
A basic class in Muay Thai consists of a Warm-up, Skipping, Stretching, Push ups, Sit ups, Technique work, Shadow boxing, Partner Drills and Sparring.
