What is Muay Thai?

Muay Thai, also known as Thai boxing, is a martial art and combat sport that originated in Thailand. It is often referred to as the “Art of Eight Limbs” because it involves the use of the hands, elbows, knees, and shins in addition to fists and feet. Muay Thai is known for its striking techniques and is a highly effective and popular form of stand-up fighting.

Our classes incorpate tradtional techniques, but are run with our style of teaching. This is a great class to get in shape, learn incredible self-defense techniques, or even compete as an amateur or pro. Team Independents coachs will always make your safety their number 1 priority, next to enjoying a fun, technique filled class!

What do I do in Muay Thai class?

Independent MMA & Fitness of McDonough warm ups bjj


Each class starts with 15-20 minutes of warm-ups. Usually starting with jump rope, then leading in to various calisthenic exercises. Lastly, water break, then technique!

The instructor will gather everyone in a circle and demonstrates the “technique of the day”. Students are then paired up and will drill the technique for 5-10 minutes. This process is repeated as the instructor goes more and more in depth to the technique and adds moves or addresses small details. This is the bulk of class and usually lasts 45 minutes.

Every class we drill back and forth with our training partner. Our goal is to perfect technique through repeition. Other days, we have controlled sparring. This gives you a chance to put what you learned and kick it in to high gear. Much like rolling in BJJ, we don’t want to hurt our training partner, but we want to get good work in.

Elite martial arts gym! Brazilian Jiujitsu black belt and head coach, Chris Ruiz, is not only an incredible BJJ athlete and coach but an amazing person. He’s highly proficient in his art, kind, compassionate, sincere, and constantly positive. He’s one of the best men I know. I emphatically recommend this gym for anyone who wants to change their life, fitness, and be a part of a close family who support each other.
