Muay Thai is known as 'the art of eight limbs' utilising kicks, knees, elbows and punches. The art also makes use of the clinch to throw opponents and deliver short punches, elbows and knees.
Here at QM Muay Thai we organise training several times a week for those interested in training and fighting. We employ professional
coaches to come in and cater to our members’ training needs: everything from fitness to fight technique. While it is an individual sport we train
as a team, and socialise as a team, and we’re always excited to take on new members. We coach members at various different levels so
beginners are encouraged to take part and try out new sports. Muay Thai is growing massively in the UK and we were thrilled to see it officiated as an Olympic sport in 2016.
Whether you want to get in shape or start fighting, come along! Anyone from complete beginners to more experienced individuals are more
We participate in inter-university competitions against KCL, UCL, Imperial and nationally. Whether you want to train to fight competitively or simply train and get fit, we are happy to accommodate any and everyone who’s enthusiastic about Muay Thai.
It's a one off annual membership fee of £50, or a termly membership of £25, all of which will be reinvested towards new equipment, fight
nights and socials.
We hope to see you there!
