What We Do @ T1 Muay Thai

What We Do. We teach the Thai Martial Arts in a very accessible way, allowing fighters to progress to their needs, and those who are training recreationally to enjoy each class who they want to.

Muay Thai

The modern ring sport, has different elements, boxing, elbows, knees, kicks and clinch. All these are covered in the classes and drilled in order to become proficient.


Each class has an element of fitness training and in fact Muay Thai padwork is great exercise for fat burning, strength and cardiovascular exercise. This is certainly evident in the "Thaibata" offering at the club.


Thaibata is based on high intensity interval training, but uses Muay Thai techniques instead of or complimented by the more traditional body weight exercise. This has been devised and developed at T1 Muay Thai and we are the only club to offer this product.

Self Defence

The club offers a self defence stream, this is supported by the grading syllabus, and the club's Chief Instructor has documented a number of techniques (over 100) that uses base Thai techniques with elements of Jiu Jitsu and the Philipino Martial arts, which is for sale in PDF format. The club has also run specific Self Defence Courses including defence against edged weapons and using self defence tools such as the Yawara and Kubotan.


Some students do not wish to fight and this is fine, but it is right that they should also be able to achieve something and juniors especially need the reward system that a grading system offers. The club holds a grading event approximately every 4 months, that all members are able to take part in.


The club has been privileged to train a few decent fighters and are always looking to offer this opportunity. Some will never take it beyond the semi contact interclub level, but all represent the club and we are proud to support them as they represent us.

K1 Kickboxing

T1 Muay Thai, has taken fighters to Latvia to be part of Team GB, this is open to everyone who wishes to fight. It is a different ruleset to Muay Thai but classes are arranged to afford these fighters the opportunity to perform at a high level and hopefully return with medals.

“We are proud to offer such varied options to our student base, and have people representing the club as fighters in Muay Thai and K1. It is also important that we have happy students going through the grading path and training recreationally” Chief Instructor Jon Nicholas
