The “Art of Eight Limbs”, Muay Thai, is a striking based martial art that teaches students to best utilize their hands, feet, knees, and elbows, to deliver devastating blow to incapacitate an attacker. In addition to the highly effective striking techniques, students also learn clinching techniques and takedowns to increase their self defense effectiveness. Muay Thai students condition their bodies and minds and refine their techniques through a variety of training methods, including heavy bag work, pad work, technical drills, and live sparring. If you’re looking for a challenging, total-body workout that offers incredible physical conditioning and the best striking skills around, our Muay Thai program offers everyday people across the Lake Norman area an opportunity to learn effective self-defense skills, while also pushing their bodies like never before. While Muay Thai is effective as a stand alone martial art system, it is also a great supplement to our Jiu-jitsu program as well!
