Muay Thai Kickboxing
Thursday: 6.30pm - 7.30pm
Muay Thai – the art of eight limbs. Practitioners of Muay Thai are devastating when it comes to stand up fighting skills, able to punch, kick, knee and elbow their way across a boxing ring, almost without equal. Originating in Thailand before spreading to the rest of the world, Muay Thai is (by comparison to BJJ) one of the simplest sports in the world to learn, with only eight options to choose from. However, therein lies the joy of perfecting the art – how many ways can you use those same eight weapons?
Trainers at Purcell Dojos have competed in full-contact, sanctioned Muay Thai bouts, as well as having trained fighters for state title fights and full Thai rules fights. A number of Thai trainers regularly visit from Thailand, while those who are interested are able to travel to Sityodtong in Thailand each year to refine their technique.
