Rob joins EP in november 2014 to teach Traditional Muay Thai for fitness and to compete
So, where do you begin..? The hardest part of starting Muay Thai, is entering the Gym for the first time…
Our classes are there to help people make their first steps into a class. They are designed at a basic level – they concentrate on the things you need to get right at the start of your Muay Thai journey. Proper footwork, how to defend yourself properly and good basic offensive techniques are taught, incorporating the four main weapons of Muay Thai – Punches, Kicks, Knees and Elbows.
Remember, every instructor was once a student and had to do exactly what you are about to do. Every Instructor will remember when they first had to walk through that door, and will make you feel at ease…
At a “steady” pace, the beginner class is an essential first step for anyone thinking of learning Muay Thai, regardless of their expectations. A good workout is still a guarantee!
Benefits of Muay Thai (Thai Boxing)
Through classes involving shadowboxing, bag work, pad work and partner work, students will not only enhance their martial art ability, fighting ability, self-defence ability, and confidence, but will also gain greater physical and mental appreciation of what can be accomplished through proper training in the art of Muay Thai (Thai Boxing).
Our classes cover footwork, striking, defense and counter attack techniques. You will learn how to create angles in your movement and use the clinch to elbow and knee your opponent and how you would effectively use these during sparing using the advanced offensive and defensive ring-craft techniques that you have learned.
The Instructors will push you harder to make you stronger both physically and mentally, but still the focus is on utilizing correct technique and not on hurting your training partner.
