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.
Visiting St Augustine from New Jersey. Had a great time training with Phil and my fellow students. Phil made me feel right at home, and his instruction is top notch. I highly recommend it!
Phil Cardella is one great Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Professor. He is one proven person in the field of Martial Arts, if I m not mistaken he is a US Army Combatives Instructor, MIxed Martial Arts Veteran and a Relson Gracie Black Belt. Besides all of that he is one human being, he is a true friend and always gives you a hand when one needs it. My Jiu Jitsu foundation is from him. This academy is highly recommended!
