how classes run
Our Muay Thai Program has two classes:
1.) Muay Thai Fundamentals
2.) Open Sparring
muay thai fundamentals:
The fundamentals class covers the basic strikes, blocks, and concepts of Muay Thai. This class is led by an instructor who teaches techniques. Classes are typically structured to include a quick warm-up, 30-40 minutes of technique, and then finish with pad work or partner drills. These classes are intended for students of all experience levels.
The Open Sparring class assumes a knowledge of the basics of Muay Thai, and focuses on developing strategy, condition, and sparring skill. These classes are recommended for students with at least six months of training.
what to bring to your first muay thai class:
An athletic shirt you are comfortable training in.
Athletic shorts or leggings with no pockets or zippers.
A water bottle.
A towel and soap if you wish to shower at the academy.
Nothing else is necessary! (We will provide you with gloves and striking equipment during your trial at Hayabusa Academy.)
What you will need if you decide to continue training Muay Thai:
You will need to purchase your own gloves, a second pair of hand wraps, and shin guards.
If you wish to eventually get into sparring, a mouth guard is highly recommended.
Men should consider wearing a groin protector for sparring.
