Muay Thai (also know as Thai boxing) is the national sport of Thailand.
Muay Thai is referred to as "The Science of Eight Limbs," as the hands, feet, elbows, and knees are all used extensively in this art.
This art differs from Karate and Kung Fu in several respects, for example in Muay Thai "forms" do not exist, nor does the practice of pulling your techniques before they make impact.
Using specially designed pads (a.k.a. Thai-pads) coupled with no-nonsense training methods, kicks, punches, knees and elbows are practiced full power and without holding back.
This type of training is very stress relieving and fun.
Muay Thai's no-nonsense approach to training makes the techniques easy to learn and extremely effective for self-defense regardless of athletic ability. Muay Thai is simple, stresses conditioning, power and effective self-defense.
Our program is guided by Michael de Acevedo, instructor under Greg Nelson, the head instructor and founder of The Academy (former Minnesota Martial Arts Academy). Our program is founded on basic skills and is easy to pick up for people with no experience. Additionally, all of our instructors have competed in the ring, so that you know what you are learning has been tested.
This is different than most programs in Barcelona.
