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!

Benefits of Muay Thai Training

 

Benefits of Muay Thai Training

In recent years, there has been a surge in people taking up Muay Thai.  The sport was once seen as too brutal for the mainstream, but that simply isn’t the case.  As these misconceptions are being dispelled, the sport is on the rise among people looking to get fitter and stronger.  Let’s take a look at the many benefits of Muay Thai.

Physical fitness

The main motivation for most people beginning Muay Thai is fitness, a clearly measurable benefit.  Muay Thai works multiple energy systems and builds both an aerobic engine and anaerobic capacity.  While many forms of exercise require just one or the other, Muay Thai is a complete package.  By training in Muay Thai, you will get stronger, faster and more powerful.  You will lose fat and build lean muscle mass.  Your coordination will improve and your metabolism will speed up.

Confidence

One of the main benefits of Muay Thai training is confidence building.  You will be kicking, kneeing, punching and elbowing pads, bags, and people.  You will unleash a fierce and confident warrior within, who is ready for anything that life throws their way.  After training for a while, you will walk taller and feel more positive about yourself and your abilities.

Skills

Speaking of abilities: harnessing kicks, knees, punches, and elbows effectively are all new skills.  You will learn to throw powerful blows for when you truly need them.  The increase in knowledge and self-defense capabilities allow you to hit the streets with a confident stride, knowing that you can defend yourself if necessary.

Humility and Respect

With these new skills and extra confidence comes humility.  The more you learn, the more you are aware of what you don’t know.  The growing ego is kept in check by the knowledge that you are just beginning your journey.  The respect you have for your teacher and the other students in the gym extends beyond those walls and into the interactions you have with others on a daily basis.  Even when in a threatening situation, you are more likely to quiet your ego and find a way to avoid confrontation.

Stress management

Being able to extract yourself peaceably from a potentially difficult scenario is one of the great benefits of Muay Thai.  You will gain the ability to find calm in a moment of stress.  If you are sparring or doing a tough pad session, your fight or flight instinct comes into play.  The repetition of this process brings you to a place of calm amid the pressure.  You find yourself completely in the moment and everything else dissipates into irrelevance.  There is only you and that moment.  When things get stressful in everyday life, you will be able to go to that calm space, then get on with the task at hand, rationally and logically.

Emotional health

After hitting the pads, you feel very much at ease.  All of the emotional baggage and ego is gone (for the most part).  While not a cure for serious psychological conditions, Muay Thai gives you the chance to blow off some steam and shake off the day’s emotions.  The things that have been upsetting you or getting under your skin dissolve as you put your body to work.

These are just a few of the many benefits of Muay Thai.  You will get fitter, physically and emotionally stronger, more confident, more respectful of others, humbler and less stressed, while picking up new skills.  All these, while having a lot of fun and making new friends in the process.
