Real Self Defence
Arguably one of the most applicable forms of striking in a real self defense situation, the art of muay thai originates in the 16th century, where Thai warriors used the ancient technique in war.
The Brisbane muay thai scene began in the 80’s when Karate schools began to adapt their style to more of an american kickboxing style of fighting, and presented it as muay thai kickboxing to the public. Now that the arts has become so popular, the art has adapted as more and more fighters travel to thailand to learn. it is now considered as one of the most effective stand-up styles of fighting throughout Australia and the world, with a large majority of UFC and MMA fighters basing their standup striking on muay thai.
Muay Thai incorporates punches, kicks, knees, and elbows, which is why the martial art is referred to as “the art of eight limbs”. Practicing the techniques of Muay Thai helps a person’s body to act before the mind requires time to process a situation, turning techniques into reflexes. People of all shapes and sizes including kids and women can benefit from Muay Thai. Whether an individual’s goals are weight loss, confidence, adding strength and cardio into their workouts, or simply wanting to find a new social group, The Fight Centre – Brisbane has it covered.
