Muay Thai Circuit

“Muay Thai”, or “The Art of Eight Limbs” uses fists, elbows, feet, and knees for offensive and defensive strikes. The Thai boxing sport is thought to have originated in the 1700s, and has been Thailand’s national sport for a long time. Although it was traditionally used as a fighting tactic, it nowadays offers its students the ability to improve their physical endurance, hone their self-defensive skills and aid their personal advancement.

Muai Thai utilises the hands, elbows and legs. Punching (Chok) includes jobs, crosses, hooks, spinning backfists, overhands and upper cuts. Elbows (Sok) are used for slashes, uppercuts, thrusts, spins, chops and strikes. The knees are used for strikes, slaps and bombs, and the feet are used for thrusts.

Thanyapura’s Muay Thai Circuit martial arts class is a medium to high intensity session, designed to improve strength, increase endurance and improve participants skills in the sport. Students work the bags and pads with a trainer on drill exercises for the knees, front kicks and punches.

The class begins with a warm up session, usually running or skipping rope for 5-10 minutes to get the heart pumping. Following this, a 10-minute period of stretching and shadowboxing takes place. Afterwards, basic Muay Thai movements are taught in 3-minute rotational rounds. Bodyweight exercises are done in between each round. For more advanced students, clinching and sparring is available.
