MUAY THAI FIGHT CAMP
This class is not open to first-timers or beginners. The 2-hour session is run like the legendary Sityodtong in Thailand. Students are expected to keep busy (skip rope, shadow box, heavy bag work, etc.). Training includes pad work, clinch and kneeing and sparring. Muay Thai Fight Camp is a prerequisite for those interested in training for competition.
Wai Kru translated means “Respect to Teacher”. It is a ceremonial dance performed prior to a bout. The class teaches several different Wai Kru’s including “Phom See Na” and “Chang Chu Uang,” which is specific to Sityodtong Camp in Thailand. Variations will be given to suit each level. It is required for all Team Sityodtong LA fighters to learn and perform the Wai Kru.
