LCS MUAY THAI CLASSES
Kids – Teens – Adults – Beginner to Fighters
At LCS we teach traditional MUAY THAI for beginners through to the most advanced techniques and strategies for professional and amateur fighters. After years of experience we have found that Beginners through to Advanced Students improve incredibly by not limiting them to just the same old boring basics every class with a slow progression rate. By introducing advanced and challenging concepts and techniques allows for Students to feel motivated and inspired to see where their training can take them.
At LCS we expose Students to all elements of Muay Thai, Students are constantly learning and refining their skills, from their first lesson. Most classes revolve around partnered pad work, bag work and drills.
We offer a colour coded grading system that allows Students to progress through a structured grading system allowing for progression to higher levels.
Sparring is optional for all Students. Many of our Students enjoy Sparring with light body contact only. This will always be optional.
Muay Thai or Thai Boxing is the national sport and cultural martial art of Thailand. It was developed several hundreds of years ago as a form of close-combat that utilizes the entire body as a weapon.
Today its definitive origins are debated by modern scholars, as much of the muay thai history was lost when the Burmese ransacked Ayudhaya, Siam’s capital city in Thailand, during the 14th century.
Most written muya thai history was lost when the Burmese looted the temples and depositories of knowledge held in Ayudhaya, and what volumes were saved are now national treasures that are preserved and protected as documentation for Thai culture and heritage.
History of Muay Thai & Origin
Muay Thai is referred to as “The Art of Eight Limbs”; and using eight points of contact the body mimics weapons of war. The hands become the sword and dagger; the shins and forearms were hardened in training to act as armor against blows, and the elbow to fell opponents like a heavy mace or hammer; the legs and knees became the axe and staff. The body operated as one unit. The knees and elbows constantly searching and testing for an opening while grappling and trying to spin an enemy to the ground for the kill.
The King of Thailand is an avid fan of Muay Thai. Since being crowned its popularity has grown more than in any other era in history.
