Muay Thai training program
All training is structured around a Muay Thai fighter’s regime. Classes begin with an intense warm-up involving jogging, skipping rope and exercise. Members are then instructed on proper form during shadow-boxing, bag work and Muay Thai drills (kicks, punches, knees and elbows). Trainers are always present to insure proper technique is being practiced. Members will then practice applying what they have learned and finish with core-work.
