Classes are open to children age 4 through 12, and no prior martial arts or sports experience is required. If your child does have martial arts experience, it will only further enhance what they know! Parents or guardians are welcome to join in the class alongside their child—but remember that you’ll have to follow the instructor’s directions too!
All classes begin with an exercise warmup and stretch. An instructor will explain and demonstrate a basic Muay Thai technique or combination and coach each student (Nak Muay) on how to properly and safely apply the technique using the necessary training equipment and pads.
Nak Mauys will be afforded the opportunity to practice these techniques and combinations by running drills with the instructor or assisting trainer. Repetitively practicing these drills helps students to get the movements down correctly, building their muscle memory, and an opportunity to increase their speed, reaction time, and power. Nak Muays may be partnered with each other to practice drills under the supervision of the instructor and/or assistant trainers. Continued (informal) assessments of techniques will be conducted and techniques will be modified and corrected throughout the lesson.
