There are so many techniques involved in the training of Thai Boxing.

The class is usually started by either skipping or jogging on the spot for a few minutes.

The instructor will then take the classfor basic stretching covering the whole of the body.

The lesson will then be split into different rounds, some for using strikes to the pads or punch bags and some for practicing technique and defence skills.

At the end of the class there is usually some basic exercises then finishing off with some cool down stretching there is then advanced training for anyone wanting more.
