Be prepared to get into the best shape of your life!
Getting started in your Muay Thai training is fun and exciting if you are in for an active lifestyle. The energy in each work out brings the best out of you presenting challenges and overcoming them, building confidence and an appreciation for your body. Muay Thai or Thai boxing (as it is known to us in North America) is a martial art defense system that originates from Thailand. At Southside we strive to preserve the traditions and culture of the sport through our classes and instruction. Included in our work outs are basic thai styles and origins of each style, thai style cardio work out and warm up, dynamic and static stretching, partner and group drills on the bag and pads and technical sparring (even for beginners). We emphasize core body work outs and muscle development in our strength training.
