"Everybody's got plans ... until they get hit." - Mike Tyson
First State Martial Arts Academy’s Muay Thai program is designed for the busy adult looking to improve their physical conditioning and their cardiovascular fitness as they learn one of the most powerful striking arts in the world.
Muay Thai (which translates into “Thai Boxing”) is Thailand’s national sport. In Muay Thai the entire body becomes a weapon. Beyond just throwing punches and kicks, eight points of contact on the body mimic weapons of war. The hands mimic the dagger and the sword, the forearms and shins become armor, the elbow becomes a hammer or heavy mace, the knees and the legs become a staff or axe.
While you will definitely get a great workout from this class, this program is NOT Cardio Kickboxing. If you’re interested in something primarily focused on cardio and conditioning for weight loss you should check out our Combat Fitness class.
Our Muay Thai Kickboxing lessons are built around technical striking, fighting and self-defense concepts. First State Martial Arts Academy is proud to serve the Camden, Dover, Felton and Milford area offering authentic Muay Thai training as an official affiliate of the Smiling Tiger Muay Thai Association under Ajarn Kevin Seaman and the World Thai Boxing Association.
Whether you want to learn traditional Thai Boxing and earn rank in a formal Muay Thai system or you want to cross-train another discipline to round out your Mixed Martial Arts skillset, our program could be exactly what you’ve been searching for. Contact us now to schedule a free class!
