Hard AF?!

  • Technique is tricky. If you’ve boxed before, the punches will be familiar. But to me, the kick and knee technique was a bit difficult at first. The instructors are great about correcting form.

  • Tests your endurance- you’ll be, more or less, moving (all limbs) for the entire class.

  • Requires attention and mental agility to remember combos and form.

  • Some of the combos and footwork can be awkward (and therefore frustrating) if you’re learning Muay Thai form for the first time, but keep on keeping on. Repetition helps.

  • No HIIT drills like burpees, push-ups, jump squats, etc.

  • Legs will be sore from kicking.

Vibe

  • Spacious studio in downstairs space.

  • Very clean and well designed.

  • Welcoming front desk and teachers, not intimidating.

  • We could tell the owners put thought into design and brand.

  • Up-to-date tech used.

Classified Information

  • A bishop is the punching bag you’ll punch and kick. It’s called a bishop bc it looks like the bishop chess piece.

  • Gorge locker rooms with 3 showers and plenty of products.

  • Automatic lockers in the lobby, but no lockers in the locker rooms.

    • If you’re in a rush to shower after class, take a risk and leave your bag in the locker room instead of in the lobby lockers.

Book Again?

Absolutely. Unique class that tests different muscles.
