My son has done 5 classes so far and is loving every second of them. He has adhd and the instructors knew it going in, they've all been very nice and very patient with my son, making sure he understands what is expected of him. I fully trust that he will learn a lot from his experience here.

Amazing place! The instructors and even the other students are great. The facility is super nice, clean and really big. Can't say enough good things. No matter your age, fitness level or goals, it's a fantastic place to learn Brazilian jiu Jitsu, striking arts, self defense, and most importantly make new friends.

My wife Mary and I have been doing the Fitness Kick-Boxing at Tai-Kai for 5 years now! And we both love it, it has put me in the best shape of my life and I am 73 years young because of it! Pat yourself on the back Ken, your school is worth it! Sheena and Mike Bidwell Fitness Kick-Boxing classes are without a doubt the best! What is neat about them is they teach us the proper technique. This is very important, becasue if you learn how to do it right your workout improves ten fold.

I’ve trained all over the world and Tai Kai is one of the best places I’ve trained, hands down. The facility is spectacular, they have a bunch of really great teachers and the student body is fun and welcoming. I love this place!

Tai Kai is so much more than a place to work out and get in shape. Sure, Tai Kai offers excellent Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Kickboxing, Muay Thai and other classes... and it’s filled with so many knowledgeable teachers and instructors. But more than that, it’s a family, a home, a place to find encouragement and a place to find acceptance. I’m so happy to have found this place, trying my first class was the best decision I’ve ever made.

My kids started training jiu jitsu here earlier this year, and after watching them train and peeking in at the adult jiu jitsu classes, I decided to try it out, too. Best decision I ever made! The instructors are phenomenal in both the kids’ and adult classes, and the atmosphere is friendly and welcoming. I’ve met several incredible people while training here and love coming in to learn and get in better shape. If anyone is intimidated by jiu jitsu (or really, any of the other martial arts classes offered at Tai Kai) this place will set you at ease with a comfortable environment and training partners who are supportive and want you to do your best!

4 Benefits That Will Make You Wish You Started Muay Thai Earlier

 

As you get older, it’s easy to find yourself in a rut. You go to work, you watch TV, and you go to bed. Some people avoid falling into such an unhealthy routine by working out at home, jogging, or going to a gym. The problem with doing these almost cliché exercises is that they get boring really fast.

That leads to lots of breaks from fitness programs.

Those who decide to go for an intensive martial art like Muay Thai have much better odds of sticking to their workout goals. Muay Thai is a complex martial art that utilizes eight limbs as weapons, leading to an infinite number of techniques for you to learn.

That means you will never stop learning new things regardless of how long you train. It’s why kids in Thailand start training almost as soon as they can walk. The longer you train, the more technically savvy you will be.

Don’t you wish you started training Muay Thai earlier now?

No need for despair. There are still many benefits you can get from training Muay Thai at any age. You start enjoying these benefits as soon as you walk into a Muay Thai gym for the first time. Those who started training earlier are already enjoying them.

Let’s take a look at four benefits that will make you wish you started training Muay Thai earlier:

1) It keeps you in tip-top physical condition

How often have you seen a Muay Thai fighter that wasn’t lean and shredded?

Exactly!

Muay Thai classes will keep you in excellent physical condition. You can burn up to 1,000 calories in a single Muay That class. You’ll have lots of fun learning and practicing various techniques, and there’s an endless amount of drills to choose from. You won’t find yourself repeating the same things over and over again each class. That makes it a whole lot easier for you to stay motivated.

Muay Thai does more than just increase your heart rate; it also helps you improve your flexibility. That’s because certain techniques require you to maneuver and bend your body. Improving your flexibility becomes more difficult as you age, so the sooner you start working on it, the better.

Improved flexibility and strength gives you improved posture. That means you don’t just feel and become healthier when you train Muay Thai, you also look better, and move better.

 

2) Opportunity to socialize

Nothing is stronger than the friendships forged in the Muay Thai gym.

Signing up for a Muay Thai class gives you an excellent opportunity to meet new people from different walks of life. Our circle of friends tends to shrink as we grow older and pick up more responsibilities. Signing up for a Muay Thai class can be an excellent way to make new friends who you can enjoy other activities outside the gym besides Muay Thai with.

Your shared interest in the art of eight limbs will serve as common-ground you can use to build relationships with others at your Muay Thai gym.

 

3) It keeps your bones strong

Friends aren’t the only thing you tend to lose with age; the same can be said about the density of your bones. That issue becomes even more severe if — like most people — you’ve gained weight over the years. That can lead to increased ailments and diseases, such as osteoporosis.

It’s hard to avoid gaining weight as you get older since your metabolism slows down. If you spend most of your day staring at a computer screen, your odds of gaining weight is further increased since you have longs periods of inactivity while you’re awake.

Gaining weight as you get older doesn’t just mean you are no longer able to see your six-pack; it can lead to serious diseases like diabetes which can lead to bone loss.

The key to avoiding this is making sure you get lots of exercise.

Signing up for a Muay Thai class is a great way to get this much-needed exercise. You’ll have lots of fun learning new techniques while burning off excess fat. The movements you drill will also help develop other aspects of your personal fitness like your flexibility and coordination. Hitting pads and heavy bags will help your build bone tissue, especially if you are on a calcium-rich diet.

It does not get boring over time like other activities like jogging, so it’s easier to stay motivated and stick with your workout routine.

 

4) Minimize the effects of aging

The hard work you put in at the Muay Thai gym pays off.

You probably weren’t expecting to learn that joining a Muay Thai gym would be good for your skin, were you?

Well, it is. Anything that makes you sweat is good for your skin.

When you sweat, dirt and oils that are trapped in your skin are pushed to the surface, clearing up your pores. Leaving such impurities in your skin will damage it over time, making it appear wrinkled.

This is the reason you will hardly find a spa that doesn’t have a sauna or steam room.

Without a doubt, you’re going to break a sweat every time you attend a Muay Thai class. You’re also going to increase your heart rate during your session. That leads to more blood and oxygen being pushed to your skin which then cleans all the impurities in your pores. It also leads to additional nutrients being sent to your skin.

 

It’s never too late

Sure, you missed out on many benefits by not signing up at a Muay Thai gym earlier, but it’s never too late to get started. At the end of the day, your age or overall fitness level do not stop you from taking advantage of the many awesome benefits of training Muay Thai, all you need to get started is a willingness to take better care of yourself?
