intermediatE/advanced muaythai

muaythai kickboxing class

take it to the next level ...

To join you will have to demonstrate that you have mastered the technique and physical conditioning from the basic MuayThai syllabus . The goal is to get you to an advanced level with no delay. There are only 14 people per class.

Focus on defence 

After warm up and shadow,  various Defence drills form the first half of the class.  Most of the drills are random attacks so you won’t know what’s coming. They are done fast but light  power so you will develop reactions without risking  injury.  If you are consistent you will learn to read and react. 

The goal is eventually no matter whether the person in front of you trains MuayThai, kickboxing, boxing, Taekwondo e.t.c  you will be confident to read their attacks and then dodge/block /catch and counter attack. 

Attack skills 

Next we practice attack skills on bags and pads. There is a lot of technique to learn and we  make sure that you know all of the ways of putting punches, kicks ,knees and elbows together in combinations. You will also learn advanced boxing techniques , and develop good single strikes so that you can KO with one shot with your hand or leg. This comes through consistently smashing the bags and pads until your body becomes a weapon.  


Clinching is a fundamental part of MuayThai it is a form of stand up grappling which involves controlling your opponent for knee strikes and avoiding knees. It also involves subtle sweeps and takedowns which can be very useful in MMA. The MuayThai clinch is an art in itself and alot of fights are won and lost in the clinch. In MMA dojo we have organised the basic clinch training in to six stages to make it easier to learn. 

Beyond style mixed martial art

At the most advanced level we don’t limit ourselves to MuayThai. We regard ourselves as mixed martial artists and if a technique is useful then we will adopt it and add it into our arsenal. We care about what works not about what is tradition. We evolve.

Clear goals 

The goal of the intermediate  MuayThai class is to get you ready for the advanced level. Then you can keep training as part of a hobby martial art lifestyle or you can start preparing to fight. 

No small achievement 

Getting to advanced level is quite an achievement itself . We don’t care about belts in MuayThai or MMA unless they are championship fight belts. However passing the advanced Muaythai level in MMA Dojo is equivalent to a black belt in most striking arts. And you would be good enough to start preparing for Competitions if you wish. Intermediate is challenging but it is a supportive environment where you can train, improve and excel at MuayThai if that is what you want.

We welcome you to MMA dojo.
