What is Muay Thai Kickboxing?
Muay Thai is a combat sport from the muay martial arts of Thailand that uses stand-up striking along with various clinching techniques. This physical and mental discipline which includes combat on foot is known as “the art of eight weapons” because it is characterized by the combined use of fists, elbows, knees, shins and feet, being associated with a good physical preparation that makes a full-contact fight very efficient. Vanguard Gym is proud to offer one of the most complete and comprehensive adult striking programs in all of Northern Virginia. Our students receive training from champion athletes and real professional fighters. Why would you want to learn from someone who has never done it for themselves? Students have the opportunity to learn and to train with great equipment in a first rate gym!
The Manassas Thai Boxing program combines plyometrics and cardio drills with Western Boxing’s punches, and Muay Thai’s kicks, knees, and elbow strikes. But it doesn’t stop there. Being able to defend these types of attacks is even more important whether in the ring or in a self-defense or street defense situation. We cover all the bases with our comprehensive kickboxing curriculum.
We have both adult and children’s classes!
