Welcome to Rising Tide Hi Tech! We are excited to share with you the rich history and unique benefits of Muay Thai.
Muay Thai, also known as Thai Boxing, is a martial art that originated in Thailand. It is a highly effective striking system that uses punches, kicks, elbows, and knees. Muay Thai is known for its intense conditioning and emphasis on practical techniques that can be applied in self-defense situations.
Our curriculum is designed to take you from a beginner level all the way to advanced techniques. We focus on building a strong foundation of technique, developing power and speed, and improving overall conditioning. Our classes include a combination of shadowboxing, pad work, heavy bag work, and sparring, which allows students to develop their skills in a safe and supportive environment. Our students can expect to get stronger, lose weight, improve their conditioning, and learn self-defense.
Our class structure is designed to accommodate students of all levels. We offer content for beginner, intermediate, and advanced practioners, so students can progress at their own pace. Our experienced instructors provide personalized attention and feedback to help students reach their goals.
At Rising Tide Hi tech, we are committed to providing a fun and challenging environment where students can learn and grow.
Equipment including gloves, shin guards, and head gear is offered at the academy for purchase.
