FAQ

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS;

 

 

1.  What exactly is Muay Thai Kick Boxing?


Muay Thai is a very effective form of self defense and fitness. Over 1,000 years ago, Thai soldiers developed it as a form of self defense on the battlefield if they found themselves weaponless. The term Muay Thai means ‘art or science of eight limbs,’ because two points on each limb are used to make contact (i.e. Fists, elbows, knees and feet).


 

Muay Thai uses boxing, kicking, knee and elbow strikes. Kicks to the thighs are a central part of Muay Thai, thus the term ‘Thai kickboxing’. Practitioners will become very fit, as the training is rigorous. It can also be used for those looking for self defense cross training.


 

Training includes shadow-boxing, pad work, and serious bag work. The instructor wears the pads on their forearms to receive the student’s punches, kicks, as well as knee and elbow strikes.

 

 

2. What should I bring for my first Thai Boxing lesson?

 

You need to bring in a towel, shorts & a sports top. Gloves are offered for public use but members can purchase their very own Thai boxing shorts, gloves & protection gear as well. We guarantee our prices for equipment are the lowest you can find in Hong Kong & on par with wholesalers in Thailand also.

 

 

3. Why should I join Thai boxing classes rather than the gym?

 

Thai boxing works on your mind and body in many different ways. It helps you get a complete body workout both cardio and toning. It works wonders on the mind in terms of confidence & well being. Also importantly, it is done in high spirits alongside professional trainers & fellow members so it creates a fun workout atmosphere.
