Our kids classes are aimed at kids aged 7-13. This is a guideline though more than a hard rule. Teens are welcome to jump into the adult class.

As a parent, you may be concerned that your child learning Muay Thai may provide them the means to be a bully, but it’s actually quite the opposite. They will learn to be humble and respectful, whilst making some great friends along the way.

If you are a trial student, you don’t need to bring anything. However, if you wish to spar, you should at the very least have a mouth guard.

If you are going to join us, we’d recommend you equip yourself with:

  • Mouthguard

Our Muay Thai classes are aimed at all levels, from beginner through to competitor. It can be as serious or as easy going as you choose.

The workouts can incorporate styles of circuit training, incorporating total-body exercises such as jump rope, squats, pads, push-ups, heavy bag and much more!

You can choose whether you want to box for fitness or spar with opponents, all in a very controlled and safe manner.

No, sparring is not mandatory. It is entirely up to you whether you want to participate in sparring sessions. Sparring provides an opportunity to practice techniques in a controlled environment with a partner, but it is always optional and conducted with safety as a top priority. You can still enjoy the benefits of Muay Thai training without engaging in sparring if you prefer.

Absolutely! Muay Thai is accessible to beginners of all fitness levels. Our classes are designed to cater to beginners, providing proper instruction, technique breakdown, and a supportive environment for learning.
