Muay Thai – Thai Boxing, sometimes referred to as Thai Kickboxing is the National Sport of Thailand. Muay Thai fighters have been called “Kings of the Ring”. They may strike any part of the body with kicks, knees, punches and elbows. The art’s awesome offense and constant focus on defensive structure combine with legendary endurance & conditioning! At the Minnesota Kali Group, the Thai Boxing classes can be some of our most physically challenging classes! The “go at your own pace” approach challenges every level.
The Muay Thai program forms one of the most important facets of training at the Kali Group. We have taken this highly effective ring art and devised drills that are fun and challenging. You will be hitting pads and developing good reactions from the very first class. These drills will get you in great shape and teach you to defend against any type of attack. We use a “go at your own pace” structure for our classes. Muay Thai has always been known for it’s conditioning.
These classes can be easy for the beginning students, yet challenging enough for even the seasoned athlete. You may wear shorts or sweats and athletic shoes or the more traditional Thai Shorts and bare feet. We have all the equipment you need to try out your first classes: gloves, thai pads and focus mitts. If you wish to purchase your own equipment, it is available in our pro shop.
