Muay Thai

Take your striking game to the next level.

If you have the fundamentals down pat, and you’re ready to take your striking game to the next level, Easton Training Center’s Muay Thai program is the right place for you. Structured for our more experienced students, the classes emphasize partner work. Instead of punching and kicking a bag, your strikes will be directed at Thai pads, which will be held by your partner. You’ll be able to focus on your game, assured that both you and your partner are already solid on the fundamental techniques, and will be able to practice them safely.

Why Study Muay Thai?

Muay Thai is sometimes referred to as the “art of eight weapons” because practitioners use their fists, elbows, knees and feet to strike their opponents. Having a wide variety of striking tools and options makes Muay Thai fighters particularly effective and efficient. If you’re interested in MMA, Muay Thai techniques will be a valuable addition to your arsenal. Besides teaching you valuable techniques of attack and defense, training in Muay Thai also provides the benefits of cardiovascular and strength conditioning, hip flexibility, and balance.

Intermediate Muay Thai

This class covers punches, kicks, knees and elbows, as well as clinch work, and defense. In the intermediate classes, instructors break down a specific technique and its applications during a Muay Thai fight. This class adds pad- and mitt-work with a partner. We also implement Dutch Style drills, which involve drilling combinations using gloves and shin guards. There is no live sparring in this class, but there will be some controlled drilling rounds with your partner. This class develops a strong understanding of all the Muay Thai weapons and how they can be applied. This class also familiarizes you with the striking number system used at Easton, and how to safely and successfully work Thai pads with a partner.

Advanced Muay Thai

Designed to incorporate every piece of Thai Boxing, and how to combine them, this class covers offense, defense, countering and clinch work. You’ll fine tune every part of your game. Going beyond what you’ve learned in the Intermediate Muay Thai classes, in the Advanced classes you’ll drill with partners, and focus on applying techniques in live fight situations. Students in this class have shown a strong understanding of all the Intermediate level techniques, and an ability to train safely with everybody in the academy.

Sparring

The Sparring class is designed to apply your techniques in a live, but controlled setting. Sparring at Easton is designed to help both partners get better, without worrying about getting hurt! These training sessions with include sparring drills and live, technical sparring rounds. The sparring class is reserved for advanced members only.

The ETC Muay Thai program is both physically and mentally challenging, but highly rewarding. I thoroughly enjoy every class I attend. Each instructor is very knowledgeable and brings their own unique perspectives to teaching the martial art. Furthermore, ETC in general provides a very welcoming and family-type atmosphere and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in learning any of the martial arts taught here!

Muay Thai is the fitness challenge that I never knew I needed. I was ready for something new when I tried kickboxing, and Easton was there to receive me with open arms. The kickboxing classes are killer cardio, and there is a great variety of Muay Thai and boxing classes to keep every single day interesting. The coaches are so informative and encouraging, always pushing you to be your strongest self. Each one of them has their own unique brand of training, and they are all phenomenal and skilled in their own regard. The staff members are always so friendly and helpful, the facility is spacious, clean, and well-maintained. They have all the equipment that I need for a complete training experience. Easton is more than just a gym, I have found good friends that treat each other like family. The experience as a whole is incredible enough that I am here every day, often for hours at a time. Above all, it's the most fun sport I've ever tried in my entire life. Muay Thai, and Easton in particular, has changed my life!!!
