San Diego Muay Thai

What is Muay Thai? Referred to as "The Science of Eight Limbs", the hands, shins, elbows, and knees are all used extensively in this cardiovascular intensive martial art.

When utilized properly, the philosophy goes, " A 100 pound woman can knock out a 200 pound man with proper Muay Thai technique"! That's the Muay Thai we teach at American Boxing San Diego!

Beginners- will first work on fitness and basic Muay Thai techniques. As fitness and endurance improves, more techniques, drills and conditioning are added.NO DIRECT CONTACT REQUIRED in this phase.

Intermediate- general skills with hands, mid to lower kicks, knees and having balance will be evident in this level of our Muay Thai training. Muay Thai Clinch and elbows are now encorporated in training. Advanced combinations, defense and light sparring also begin here. SOME LIGHT CONTACT... PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT IS AVAILABLE & REQUIRED

Advanced- sparring will be used to demonstrate skills in defense as well as offense. Ring strategies, movement, advanced combinations and devastating techniques will be taught to further develop skills. At this point, student is near certification. When all levels are completed and demonstrated effectively through commitment and competition, the student will then be Sen Muay Thai Certified. 16 oz gloves, mouthpiece, headgear, shin guards and Thai boxing shorts will be required and available.

It is important to understand that in each phase, the student will be given opportunity to work with those below and above their skill, to teach and be taught. This certification is very thourough and taken extremely seriously by our head Kru: Coach Dave Nielsen. The student will then be qualified to teach.
