Kid's Muay Thai Program
No matter what martial art you’re practicing, endurance is a necessity. Here at Carlson Gracie Tucson we understand that to win a match, you need a high level of skill AND conditioning. Regularly training in Muay Thai 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 Muay Thai 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.
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.
Although Muay Thai isn’t a ground fighting style, it provides students with many lessons that prepare them for potential attacks or altercations. To begin with, Muay Thai allows its practitioners to use their hands, feet, and knees for various punches and kicks. This provides students with the tools needed to defend themselves from an attacker with a swift punch or a powerful kick. Not to mention, Muay Thai emphasizes awareness, mental sharpness, overall body strength, muscle memory, and the proper timing of a kick or strike. Furthermore, Muay Thai imparts important techniques and helps individuals react quickly and effectively.
