Q.Why should I train at York Muay Thai?
York Muay Thai blends together all the aspects of Muay Thai from the great workout, the technique of authentic Muay Thai and the language/cultural of the Thai people. Each class is full of hard work, specific technique, and Thai philosophies. At York Muay Thai we focus on changing lives for the better through Muay Thai.
Q.What will my first class be like?
Your first class will begin with an introduction to our school and family. We begin the classes with a 35 – 45 minute workout followed by stretching and and full hour of technical drills. For the technical portion you will have your own class with other beginner students and your own instructor to help walk you through all the basics and fundamentals of Muay Thai such as stance and footwork. We will also explain some basic Thai culture.
Q.What do I need for my first class?
Typically people wear a T-shirt or tank top and a pair of shorts. Shorts allow us to see the technique more clearly in the legs. However, wear anything that you feel comfortable in, which could include tights or jogging pants. Bring water, a towel and a snack for after the workout. Handwraps can be purchased at the school and gloves will be provided for your first few classes.
Q.What if I am really out of shape?
That is ok! Everyone has to start somewhere and York Muay Thai is a great place to kick start your fitness goals. Each class is a graduation from fitness to technique. Our instructors always work with each student to help them progress at their own level and speed. Our family of instructors and students will always keep you motivated and improving.
Q.Can I bring a friend?
Absolutely! At York Muay Thai we realize that it can be a little intimidating trying your first Muay Thai class alone. Although we have a very great group of welcoming students, we encourage every member to bring a friend.
Q.How often should I be training each week?
If you are a new student typically three days a week is a great start. You want to challenge your body but not over train and injure yourself. As you get comfortable with the workouts, you are more then welcome to increase your training as you wish.
Q.What equipment do I need to buy for classes and where do I get it?
Beginners should buy handwraps, Thai shorts and bag gloves first. Once you are further along in your progression of Muay Thai we encourage you to pick up some shinguards and sparring gloves. York Muay Thai sells all the equipment you will need including other Thai related clothing and accessories.
