You may be wondering what happens during a typical Muay Thai training session. We always begins with a full warm up. After we have warmed up the body, and broken a little sweat it’s time to switch gears to get in some pad and bag work. From there a typical training session will transition over to partner work (for small group session), this is where we practice the techniques learned during class with a live partner in a safe, fun, and challenging way. Private, 1-on-1, training sessions will typically have longer pad sessions and more intensive technique instruction.
