About Muay Thai

Muay Thai, also known as Thai Boxing, can be traced all the way back to the 16th century in the country then known as Siam. It is also referred to as the Art of Eight Limbs because it utilizes every part of the body including the hands, feet, head, torso, knees, elbows, forearms, and shins to both defend and attack. In your Muay Thai classes at Freestyle Martial Arts, you’ll be taught to turn all of these body parts into weapons that can be used in the following ways:

  • You’ll learn to use the entire power of your torso to lash out and kick with your legs and feet. Many top MMA fighters have adopted Muay Thai style kicks for their ability to deliver a potent blow. 
  • Your elbows can be used like a hammer to smash your opponent to the ground or like a sharp club to slash at the face and head. With continuous training, your elbows will be hardened into solid tools. 
  • You’ll turn your forearms and shins into the strongest part of your body to become a tough shield against any attack. In Thailand, Muay Thai fighters traditionally struck their forearms and shins against banana trees to toughen them up, but we have easier methods today. 
  • Hands and feet become solid jabbing implements that can focus powerful blows against the vulnerable parts of your opponent’s body. 
  • The whole-body clinch is used in Muay Thai and you’ll be taught the most effective techniques to use when you find yourself up close and personal with your foe. 

There are multiple moves to learn with each part of your body, and all of them are capable of delivering a devastating blow. In our Muay Thai classes, you’ll spend a lot of time in personal instruction learning all of the strikes, kicks, and blocks and also sparring with a partner to learn how to perfect your fighting techniques.

Muay Thai For Physical Fitness

Muay Thai is one of the best martial arts for physical training. This is because it uses the whole body in its moves, building up core strength rather than working only specific muscles. It’s a fast and frenetic sport that works out both your heart and lungs for intense aerobic and anaerobic conditioning. Flexibility and agility are greatly improved with practice as you are constantly swiveling your hips and flexing your elbows, knees, and neck. In just a few sessions, you’ll start noticing the weight coming off and your muscles toning up. You’ll look better, feel great, and gain confidence as you begin to master the ancient sport of Muay Thai.
