Muay Thai classes for all skill levels
Our classes start with a typical Muay Thai warm-up routine which consists of a series of exercises to increase heart rate, improve flexibility, and prepare the muscles for the more intense workout that follows.
The focus then shifts to mobility and flexibility exercises such as shadowboxing, lunges, hip rotations, and shoulder circles. These exercises help to loosen up the joints and muscles, and improve range of motion, which is important for striking techniques that are practised.
After that, our instructors will divide the class into pairs where you will practise techniques with a partner or bag.
