Common Questions and Concerns?

Do you have to be in good shape to train Muay Thai?

No. In fact, Muay Thai is one of the best workouts you can do to get in shape if you’re not happy with your current fitness level. It works your entire body. Over time, you can increase the intensity of your workouts to continue to challenge your body.

Will Muay Thai workouts help me lose weight?

Yes. However, it is important to combine Muay Thai with a healthy diet and lifestyle if you want your body to be lean and strong. Muay Thai burns a lot of calories but you may have problems if you eat a diet high in sugar and processed foods.

Is Muay Thai good for self-defense?

Yes. Muay Thai teaches students to leverage their own body weight as well as their opponent’s weight. Students learn practical moves that are ideal for self-defense – and Muay Thai also builds good reflexes, which are essential in a fight.
