Muay Thai

Skamma’s MMA Classes, Melbourne, Offer Muay Thai Kickboxing. Muay Thai is referred to as “The Art of Eight Limbs”, and using eight points of contact, the body mimics weapons of war. The hands become the sword and dagger, the shins and forearms were hardened in training to act as armor against blows, the elbow strikes feel to opponents like a heavy mace or hammer and the legs and knees become the axe and staff. The body operates as one unit. The knees and elbows constantly searching and testing for an opening while grappling and trying to spin an enemy to the ground for the kill. Kickboxing is said to be the alternative to the more ruthless and sometimes deadly sport of Muay Thai. Skamma Muay Thai Kickboxing in Melbourne will be taught staying true to the traditions and rhythmic movements as handed down by the Thais through the ages.

It’s easy to see why Muay Thai is often referred to as ‘The Art of Eight Limbs’, as during Muay Thai classes, you’ll use your body to mimic the weapons that would be used in combat.

  • Your hands become the sword and dagger, while your shins and forearms are the armour.
  • Your elbows are used as you would use a heavy hammer or mace, and your legs and knees take the place of an axe or staff.

Here at Skamma, we stay true to tradition and as one of the best Muay Thai gyms in Melbourne, we aim to ensure that the rhythmic movements handed down over the centuries become second nature to you as you perfect your craft.

Benefits of Muay Thai Training

Muay Thai kickboxing is a very physical form of exercise and requires skill and concentration. There are many benefits for anyone who is interested in taking Muay Thai classes in Melbourne and these include:

  • Cardiovascular Workout – When you practise the art of Muay Thai in our Melbourne gym, you’ll be getting a complete cardiovascular workout and this will help to condition your cardiopulmonary system giving you greater strength and endurance.
  • Increased Leg Strength – Because kicking and footwork play a large role in Muay Thai, with increased practise you’ll find that it will strengthen all the muscles of your lower body, especially your legs. Plus it will give you nice-looking calves to boot!
  • Increased Core Strength – Muay Thai requires quite a bit of rotational movement and this will certainly help to strengthen your core.
  • Increased Hip Mobility – As the practice of Muay Thai involves a lot of kicking and kneeing movements, this will in time help to promote increased hip mobility. This is especially important later in life when hip fractures are common in people who haven’t had this type of training.
  • Stress Relief – This form of martial arts, as with most forms, requires extreme concentration and focus, which alone takes away your worries because you just don’t have time to think about them. Your whole mind and body is totally focused on the moves you’re making and avoiding those same moves coming from your opponent.
  • Increased Self-Discipline – Our Muay Thai training in Melbourne will require you to develop a great amount of self-discipline as you learn the different moves and techniques. This will assist you greatly in other areas of your life as well.
  • Strengthens the Mind – Muay Thai Kickboxing requires a certain amount of mental toughness as you outsmart your opponent in the ring and concentrate your energy on completing all the moves.
  • Builds Self-confidence – As Thai boxing is a physically demanding sport, mastering the art gives you a sense of achievement which in turn boosts your self-confidence.
  • Increases Self-defence Skills – Learning the techniques in Muay Thai can greatly enhance your self-defence skills so that you can take care of yourself if you’re ever placed in a situation where you need to.
  • Aids Weight Loss – Practising Muay Thai improves your cardiovascular endurance and gives you a great workout at the same time. The fundamental moves that you’ll learn and practice during your classes will help you to strengthen all your limbs as well as your core so this will tone your muscles and thereby give you a leaner body.

These are just some of the many benefits that you’ll gain when you take Muay Thai kickboxing classes in Melbourne. We look forward to helping you achieve all these and more at Skamma Gym, the best Muay Thai gym in Melbourne.
