Muay Thai Kickboxing is considered by many to be the most effective “stand up” style of fighting for self defense, sport and physical fitness. Every fight or altercation starts standing so everyone needs to learn to defend themselves on their feet. As a self defense and sport fighting art Muay Thai’s no nonsense offensive techniques are designed to stop an attacker or knock out an opponent in their tracks. Muay Thai utilizes all of the body’s natural weapons; the hands, elbows, knees, shins and feet are all used as striking surfaces. Muay Thai’s kicking techniques are second to none. Unlike many traditional Martial Arts systems, Muay Thai utilizes leg kicks as a means of breaking down an opponent. If an opponent or attacker can’t stand, they can’t fight. Its defensive techniques are highly effective in evading and/or stopping an attack by an attacker or opponent and are taught with a strong emphasis on how to counter an attack. EMA’s Muay Thai classes also focus heavily on Boxing to help to complete the student as a well-rounded fighter, capable of adjusting to all ranges of stand-up combat. For street self-defense, sport and fitness our Muay Thai classes are second to none.
