Muay Thai is a striking combat sport also known as the “Art of Eight Limbs” because it employs the use of your fists, legs, elbows and knees to strike an opponent. It is well known for its very effective offensive striking techniques but is also perfect for students who simply want to get strong and fit and learn self-defense. Our classes focus on teaching the traditional Muay Thai system through a variety of drills and games including partner pad work, bag drill, block returns as well as footwork drills.
Muay Thai classes are offered at our Columbia Academy and our Severna Park affiliate (the Kogen Dojo). Matt Van Valkenburgh runs our Muay Thai program. He has professional Muay Thai and boxing experience and has fought in Korea, Thailand and the US. Matt is a U.S. Army veteran, husband and father of two.
Note: Muay Thai is only offered at our Columbia, MD location
