This year I started following Muay Thai practices at Imperial College. Muay Thai or Thai boxing is a highly dynamic form of martial arts, utilizing knees, elbows, shins and fists. I have been really enjoying it, it is not only great for your fighting skills, but also builds your mental strength and improves your fitness.
Last week, I filmed one of the practice to make a little video of what a Muay Thai training at Imperial is like and I would like to share the result with you (see the video below).
Muay Thai practices are held twice a week, on Wednesdays and Sundays in Union Gym 3 at Beit Quadrangle. As you can see in the video, the classes are accessible to anyone: with or without previous martial arts experience, big or small, male or female, stocky or skinny, etcetera.
All classes are taught by qualified instructors (or ‘kru’) of the KO gym, one of London’s well known top gyms. The club also holds many social events throughout the year including going to Muay Thai events in London.
More information and contact details about Muay Thai at Imperial can be found here.
Oh, and this Sunday some of the Imperial College Muay Thai fighters (including myself) will participate in an inter-university competition. The fights will start at about 12pm at the KO Gym in Bethnal Green (South-East London), feel free to come by and support us if you are around!
Enjoy your weekend,
