This discipline sets itself apart from other martial arts due to its distinctive style of boxing. Muay Thai utilizes eight points of contact, rather than the four that similar styles, such as kickboxing, use. In Ralph Gracie Vacaville’s Muay Thai class, you’ll be using all eight contact points for punches, knee strikes, elbow strikes, kicks, and more. If you’re looking for something that will challenge what you think you know about martial arts, you’ve come to the right place.

Enhances Strength and Fitness
Are you ready to be in the best shape of your life? Well, Muay Thai is the martial art for you. Muay Thai is an intense form of physical training that boosts cardiovascular health through both aerobic and anaerobic exercises. As a result, you’ll quickly improve your endurance and build immense muscular strength throughout your entire body. Additionally, Muay Thai is known to help its practitioners shed fat and lose weight. After just an hour of Muay Thai training, you’ll have utilized pretty much every part of your body and burned about 500-700 calories. In our Muay Thai class, students practice a variety of exercises – such as jumping rope, shadowboxing, sprinting, sit-ups, technique sequences, sparring, and stretching. You will begin to experience improvements in your stamina, strength, and power after only a few classes!
Though there are many sports and martial arts that teach self-defense skills, Muay Thai provides benefits that other athletic disciplines can’t brag about. Muay Thai is a full-contact sport that taps into every part of the body while fighting. (Hey, it’s not called “the art of eight limbs” for nothing!) Muay Thai teaches its practitioners how to strike with immense power, fight from the perfect distance, carefully use footwork to their advantage, and rely on instincts in situations of anxiety.
