Muay Thai Class

As the national sport of Thailand, Muay Thai is similar to kickboxing, but also employs knees, elbows, and clinch work.  At Unit 2 we stress ring control and ring movement in our classes so that if you choose to compete you will be well prepared.

The classes are taught in our Muay Thai room which features a 26-foot competition boxing ring, heavy bags, and large mat space for shadow boxing. Our instructors teach both traditional Muay Thai and Muay Thai for MMA fighting. You will learn proper foot work, fight strategy, punching, kicking, and clinch.  Our classes are taught by World Champions, some of who have trained and fought in Thailand.
