Our stand up striking classes are based on techniques from Kickboxing, Muay-Thai and Boxing. We utilise the use of punches, kicks, elbows and knees combined with effective defensive techniques. Our influences also stem from traditional karate where footwork and counter striking plays a big part.
Muay-Thai or Thai Boxing is a combat sport of Thailand that uses stand-up striking along with various clinching techniques.This physical and mental discipline which includes combat on shins is known as “the art of eight limbs” because it is characterized by the combined use of fists, elbows, knees, shins, being associated with a good physical preparation that makes a full-contact fighter very efficient.
Our striking classes are great for developing technique and fitness with a variety of drills designed to incorporate smooth footwork, quick head movement, effective counter striking, aggressive offense and unbreakable defense.
At Macarthur Martial Arts our Striking classes are run by Head Coach Michael Hubbard.
