how classes run
Our Muay Thai 101 classes run for 1 hour. The coach will run a brief warm up, and then proceed into an instruction portion of the class. During instruction, you will work in pairs and practice the techniques that the coach has instructed. This gives the coach(s) the opportunity to walk around and assist, correct and help perfect your technique. The second portion of the class is pad work. You will either hold pads for your partner, or hit pads while your partner holds for you. When the class ends, you should feel exhausted, but awesome.
Our Muay Thai 201 classes run for approximately 1 hour. These are designed for people with 6 months or more experience. The class is designed to be minimal instruction. A hard Muay Thai warm up, followed by several rounds on either the Thai pads or heavy bag, followed by optional rounds of sparring.
