Adult Muay Thai
If you’re looking for something that will challenge what you think you know about martial arts, you’ve come to the right place. Muay Thai sets itself apart from other martial arts due to its distinctive style of boxing. Muay Thai utilizes eight points of contact, rather than the four that similar styles, such as kickboxing, use. In Florida Muay Thai’s Muay Thai class, you’ll be using all eight contact points for punches, knee strikes, elbow strikes, kicks, and more.Contact Us

Enhances Strength and Fitness
Are you ready to be in the best shape of your life? Well, Muay Thai is the martial art for you. Muay Thai is an intense form of physical training that boosts cardiovascular health through both aerobic and anaerobic exercises. As a result, you’ll quickly improve your endurance and build immense muscular strength throughout your entire body. Additionally, Muay Thai is known to help its practitioners shed fat and lose weight. After just an hour of Muay Thai training, you’ll have utilized pretty much every part of your body and burned about 500-700 calories.
In FLMT’s Muay Thai class, students practice a variety of exercises – such as shadowboxing, technique sequences, sparring, and stretching. You will begin to experience improvements in your stamina, strength, and power after only a few classes!
Though there are many sports and martial arts that teach self-defense skills, Muay Thai provides benefits that other athletic disciplines can’t brag about. Muay Thai is a full-contact sport that taps into every part of the body while fighting. (Hey, it’s not called “the art of eight limbs” for nothing!) Muay Thai teaches its practitioners how to strike with immense power, fight from the perfect distance, carefully use footwork to your advantage, and rely on instincts in situations of anxiety.
If you’ve never practiced Muay Thai before, the idea of taking your first class may induce stress, not relieve it! Well, we’re here to alleviate your fears. Not only is our Muay Thai community incredibly welcoming, but this martial art is known for its anxiety-reducing abilities. With each strike, kick, and drop of sweat, you are letting go of worry and stress. As you place all of your focus into the training session or match at hand, you will boost your body’s endorphins, release frustrations, and experience an amazing sense of accomplishment.
We have seen our Muay Thai training transform the lives of hundreds of students – both on and off the mat. This martial art discipline teaches potentially life-saving self-defense skills, urges students to face challenges, and provides a newfound sense of physical prowess. The result? A confidence that empowers athletes in all aspects of their lives.
Muay Thai is known for its ability to tone and build strength in nearly every part of your body. It engages your arms, legs, abs, shoulders, and glutes all at once! Muay Thai puts serious stress on all of these muscle areas, building strength quickly. Additionally, thanks to its heavy use of cardio, Muay Thai burns tons of calories and aids in major weight loss (but not muscle mass loss of course)! All around, Muay Thai is perfect for strengthening and vitalizing the entire body. You’ll find yourself feeling and looking stronger, healthier, and happier. These benefits will carry over into all other areas of your athletic training, work performance, and personal life.
No matter what martial art you’re practicing, endurance is a necessity. Here at Florida Muay Thai, we understand that in order to win a match, you need a high level of skill AND conditioning. Regularly training in provides you with a level of cardio that is sure to protect you from losing strength during a match and not being able to execute those techniques you’ve spent countless hours mastering. Our classes will keep you on your toes – covering a wide variety of exercises such as interval training, jump roping, core strength drills, and both aerobic and anaerobic conditioning.
