The national sport of Thailand, Muay Thai is referred to as "The Science of Eight Limbs", as the hands, shins, elbows and knees are all used extensively in this art.  An experienced practitioner of Muay Thai has the knowledge and ability to execute strikes using eight points of contact. Muay Thai is an especially versatile, practical, straightforward yet challenging martial art that people enjoy, and find the classes exciting to participate in.

In the Muay Thai program we train together as a team. The team aspect builds self confidence, the ability to work together, leadership, respect for others, and a positive mind set. These skills are considered crucial life skills and our used not only in Muay Thai but in everyday life.

In the World Championship Martial Arts Muay Thai program we focus on three things, Technique, Conditioning, and Application of technique. Therefore, our classes are split into sections to focus on each of these aspects individually to help with our student’s success. The classes will go as followed, conditioning will be at the start of class and will consist of a rigorous cardiovascular, and core strength exercises to develop stamina, and strong body and mind condition. Then we will focus on technique which will include shadowboxing, partner drills, and pad drills with partners. Then we will focus on the application of these techniques with pad work with our world class instructor, also with sparring, and fast pace drills with other students.

In this program we give the students practical and versatile tools to defend themselves, get into the best shape of their lives, progress through the grading system, and also to compete successfully in amateur to professional competition.

All of our students have to option to compete in Muay Thai when the instructor says they are ready (Students under 18 also need parent’s/guardian’s permission), but it is completely optional so there is no pressure placed on our students.
