This class begins with Thai warm-up exercises, stretches, specific conditioning, and shadowboxing. Learning Pad work, control, and fluidity minimize the risk of injury. Students will focus on utilizing core body muscles and develop a basic understanding of techniques and sound conditioning. Muay Thai is referred to as the “Art of Eight Limbs” because it utilizes punches, kicks, elbows and knee strikes, thus using eight “points of contact.” Intermediate to advanced students will be able to partake in live sparring. Muay Thai is the most devastating form of stand up fighting.
I've trained jiu-jitsu at many different facilities and Relson Gracie St Aug is by far hands down the most friendly welcoming atmosphere I've experienced. Phil (head instructor) is a 3rd degree black belt with an extensive history in the sport. There's several other black belts in class and always some high level purples and browns. A very wide range of skill levels train here. All around top notch instruction and people.
Phil is a world class Jiu-Jitsu instructor with direct lineage to Helio and Relson Gracie. I highly recommend training with Phil if you live in St. Augustine. He is the best!!!
Phil is an amazing and knowledgeable instructor. If you want to learn from the best, you've found the right place.
