Muay Thai is the national sport of Thailand, and our most popular training session at MKG UK Southampton. Muay Thai fighters have been called “Kings of the ring”, where they may strike any part of the body. This art is an awesome display of strong offense with a constant focus on defensive structure and legendary endurance! Through our parent school in the US, we have taken this highly effective ring art and devised drills that are fun yet challenging – you will be confidently hitting pads and developing good reactions from the very first class. Not only are these classes easy for the beginner student, they are hard enough for even the most seasoned of athletes. The “go at your own pace” structure of our classes means you make it as physically challenging as you want to (but we’d like you to appreciate this arts body conditioning capabilities!!!).
Our classes will help you utilise the 8 weapons of the body – fists (punches), elbows, feet (kicks), and knees – all performed through various drills, combinations and fitness workouts on handheld pads. This will get you in great shape, yet teach you to defend against many types of attack.
