Muay Thai, also known as “The Science Of The Eight Limbs” is the National Sport of Thailand and is hands-down the most effective striking system in the world. For this reason, Muay Thai is the core striking system of Warrior Arts Alliance. To be successful in the arts of WAA we recommend that you build a solid foundation in Muay Thai first.
Muay Thai gives the Combat Athlete (You) the ability to strike with powerful punches, elbows, knees and kicks as well as the ability to clinch and wrestle from the standing position. It also provides you with cardiovascular fitness which is critical in self-defense situations. You also develop the ability to defend against all types of strikes which is critical to survival on the mean streets.
Any self-defense program that does not incorporate Muay Thai is really missing one of the most important pieces of the self-defense puzzle. With a basic understanding of Muay Thai, it’s easy for you to pick up Mixed Martial Arts, Jeet Kune Do and Filipino Dirty Boxing which are all boxing based disciplines.
