Beginners start here. In our 45 minute classes you will learn stance, movement, basic strikes, and defense. We start out with a simple warmup usually incorporating skills or movements from Thai Boxing or boxing. The students work with a partner on boxing mitts, Thai pads, belly pads, and/or kick shields. There is no sparring and very low levels of contact in the fundamentals classes. Expect to get a moderate workout where you can push yourself and improve your fitness. The fundamental curriculum is seven weeks long and after completion you will be eligible for a pad test to start taking intermediate level classes. Gloves, shin guards, and wraps are the only equipment that is mandatory for the classes, although a cup is recommended.
Bag Class – These all level classes are 30 minutes and focus on power and conditioning using heavy bags. As with all classes you can push at your pace, but expect to get a vigorous workout. These classes are for anyone from beginners to advanced students who want to increase endurance, lose weight and/or work on striking power. Gloves and wraps are the only equipment that is mandatory for the classes.
Boxing – Boxing classes are for all levels and are about 45 minutes. They include pad work with a partner, and some higher intensity conditioning drills. Only punching and punch defense techniques are practiced. The stance, movement, and style of defense differs from that traditionally used in Thai Boxing. These classes are open to all levels, beginners through advanced.
