At the PIT, our Muay Thai training includes training with our coaches on Thai pads, focus mitts, heavy bags, and occasional sparring. Training in specific tactics and strategies is conducted by PIT fighters, Bruce and Juan. Our personal trainers are not Muay Thai coaches, which is why we leave it to our two experts to teach the “Art of 8 limbs”.
Thai pad training is the main tool used during our Muay Thai sessions. These pads are used to absorb the impact of the fighter’s strikes and allow the fighter to react to the attacks of the pad holder in a live situation.
Focus mitts are also used to train a fighter’s hand speed, punch combinations, timing, punching power, defence, and counter-punching and may also be used to practise elbow strikes.
Heavy bag training is a conditioning and power exercise that reinforces the techniques practised on the pads.
Sparring is a means to test technique, skills, range, strategy, and timing against a partner. At the PIT, sparring is kept at a light to medium contact exercise; unless, of course, when training our competitive athletes.
The other good news: your Muay Thai training can be incorporated into your other personal training programs at the PIT. Train Hard. Fight Easy.
