Telford Thai Boxing
Telford Thai Boxing is Shropshire's premier Thai Boxing club offering a variety of classes and tuition that cater for everyone - regardless of age, sex, size and ability, on a pay-as-you-go basis.
This friendly, professional local club teaches the traditional art of Muay Thai or Thai Boxing from a dedicated gym facility in Hadley. Led by 'Kru' (main teacher) Matt, the team of passionate instructors focus solely on the authentic form of Thai Boxing / Muay Thai.
The club is completely inclusive and welcomes everyone, from beginners to those more experienced in this form of martial arts. Telford Thai Boxing can help to build your self confidence, make you feel safer out and about, help you to lose weight, tone up and improve your overall fitness levels. The fully trained and qualified instructors focus on motivating you to achieve your personal goals, whatever they may be. All are CRB checked with certificates on display, and provide the highest standards of training possible. All classes are very affordable and there's no contracted payment terms - just pay for each session as you go.
Adult Muay Thai
The 2 hour Thai Boxing classes are popular with men and women and are tailored for all ages and abilities (beginner to pro-fighter) from age 12 upwards. Each weekday evening training session is differently themed - technical, cardio based, and fight drills, allowing students to become rounded in all elements of the training. Beginners and new students don't need to worry about the 'fighting' or 'sparring' elements of Thai Boxing - the atmosphere is friendly and relaxed and no-one is pressured into the more combative elements of the sport.
Courses run on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 7-9pm and you pay by the class.
Ladies Only Classes
These operate 4 evenings per week and incorporate fitness, toning and weight loss programmes in fun, energetic classes. Recognising that many ladies aren't interested in the 'full contact' element of the sport, all training is done using protective equipment. Many ladies move on to the mixed adult classes to further their training - but it's always your call - there's never any pressure on you to move to a different class and the atmosphere is non-intimidating and inclusive.
Ladies only courses run on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 6-7pm and on Saturday 9.30-10.30am. Pay as you go applies here too.
Telford Thai Boxing offer first class tuition for children with two separate classes: Tiny Thais for ages 3-7, and Thai Juniors for ages 8-12. All the children's programmes are designed to promote self defence and confidence, and offer energetic physical and mental workouts alongside teachings of respect, discipline, self defence, Thai tradition and non-contact ring-craft. Sparring is always optional and very controlled, and all instructors are fully CRB checked.
Children's classes run on Wednesday 5-7pm and Saturday 11am - 1pm and are pay as you go like all other classes.
Offering programmes for the dedicated and committed students who wish to prepare for competition, these classes are strictly by invitation only and contact levels are high. Classes are structured around conditioning, ceremonies, fighting fitness, ring craft and of course sparring.
