As they develop good practice in the initial learnings we will progress and round out the technique.
An excellent martial art in it’s own right, it complements the techniques we teach the students in the Junior Freestyle Ju-Jitsu classes and all comes together in the Mixed Martial Arts sparring that the students display during their gradings.

What is Muay Thai Kickboxing?
Muay Thai is a combat sport from the muay martial arts of Thailand that uses stand-up striking along with various clinching techniques. This physical and mental discipline which includes combat on foot is known as “the art of eight limbs” because it is characterized by the combined use of fists, elbows, knees, shins and feet, being associated with a good physical preparation that makes a full-contact fight very efficient. Muay Thai became popular in the sixteenth century, but became widespread internationally only in the twentieth century, when practitioners defeated notable practitioners of other martial arts. A professional league is governed by the World Muay Thai Council. (source)
