Everyone takes kickboxing for different reasons.

Our West Hartford kickboxing school, the team of qualified kickboxing instructors, and friendly, reliable support staff are here to help you achieve your goals.

Muay thai kickboxing is an ancient martial art which has resurfaced as a popular – and effective – means of self defense. Kickboxing is also an important (some might say indispensable) component of the MMA game. Muay Thai style kickboxing utilizes all of your body and includes use of your knees and elbows. As such, it’s an amazing workout! We have many students who come to us just for the fitness elements of Muay Thai. They just get the added benefit of learning REAL Muay Thai style kickboxing. It’s exercise with a purpose. They love that!

Our instructors are world-class. Success breeds success. We are a family and a team.

Traditional Muay Thai Kickboxing

Muay Thai (Thai Boxing) is a sport and martial art that originated in Thailand. Our West Hartford Academy teaches an adapted form of Muay Thai. We teach from the Muay Thai origin rather than run watered down “kickboxing fitness classes” because our method accomplishes both goals: fitness and a method of self defense (which could also be used in sport or integrated with an MMA curriculum.

KICKBOXING FOR SELF DEFENSE

This martial art is arguably one of the most effective self defense fighting styles. The workout and practice of this martial art improves overall strength, balance, coordination, speed, and reaction time. In kickboxing, you’re not limited to fists – you can use knees, elbows, and of course legs and feet. It is known as the “art of eight limbs.” You can attack and prevent attack from a distance or in close quarters.

MMA PREP: KICKBOXING IS CRUCIAL TO YOUR ARSENAL

Muay Thai and kickboxing are two of the most important facets of the striking aspect in mixed martial arts. Using kicks and knees open up opportunities for the hands can act as both a great offensive threat and a solid defensive base.
