Q: "Is there a risk for injury with martial arts?"
Any sport or form of exercise comes with a risk of injury. However, there are a few things that make our program very safe. It's because of these few things that we barely see any injuries with our program.

Stretching: At the beginning of every class we go through a series of stretches. These stretches get your muscles and joints ready and warmed up for exercise.

Supervision: Every class is supervised by trained, licensed professionals. We watch carefully to make sure no student is doing anything in a dangerous or unsafe way.

In short, we place a tremendous amount of focus on fun and safety. It's because of this that we feel confident telling you that while there is risk for injury with our program - it's a very small risk.
Q: “What level of fitness is required for martial arts?”
People come to us of all fitness levels. We get natural-born athletes, and we get people who have a harder time with athletic endeavors. However, everyone gets the same focus and attention.

If you're not in great shape, don't worry. Go at your own pace, and we'll do everything we can to help you learn each and every technique. Soon enough, your physical fitness will improve, and you'll be in better shape than ever!
Q: “Is martial arts violent?”
No! Because self-defense technique is taught in martial arts, it's often thought of as violent. However, the philosophies behind martial arts revolve around peace and harmony. The moves are more of a way to become connected with your body. We teach diplomacy and friendship. However, if a violent situation ever arises in your life, you'll have powerful tools to defend yourself and your loved ones.

Muay Thai

What do I bring to class?
If you've got your own Muay Thai gear (gloves and hand wraps), feel free to bring your own. If not, wraps are available for purchase at the front desk and gloves are available for rental or purchase. We recommend bringing a water bottle and your own hand towel. Shorts and a t-shirt are our uniform of choice, but the best clothes are the ones you feel most comfy in.
How do I advance to the next level?
While each student is unique and will progress at their own pace, it is possible to advance as quickly as 6 months with consistent training and perseverance. As with any sport, the physical changes and improvements will start to take shape after a few weeks of consistent training, but the mental benefits begin immediately. By the end of your first workout, chances are good you'll feel like a rock star! Reduced stress, glowing skin, and popping muscles are just the tip of the iceberg. Get ready to crush some serious goals, both inside and out of the studio, because that rock star feeling just gets stronger every time.
What is Muay Thai?
Muay Thai or Thai Boxing is a stand-up combat sport and is recognized as the national sport and cultural martial art of Thailand. It's on track to become an Olympic sport and has gained popularity all over the world. Sometimes referred to as The Art of Eight Limbs,' Muay Thai involves the entire body, identifying each strike (punch, kick, knee or elbow) as one 'weapon.' In addition to striking, it also utilizes sweeps and the clinch, a form of stand-up neck grappling.
What are the benefits of Muay Thai?
The conditioning that you go through to become faster, stronger, more efficient, and more powerful has similar effects on your body, mind, and spirit. As you train, you will notice greater self-confidence, a stronger sense of discipline and a mental fortitude that reveals itself in other areas of your life. When students practice Muay Thai, they cultivate strong values, and every time they show up, they have the ability to be humbled and inspired, to test their determination and courage, and to build others up with us. When you combine these mental gains with a noticeably fit and healthier body and an empowered spirit, there's no reason NOT to train Muay Thai!
