"Success is the journey, not the destination."
Muay Thai Boxing is recognised by many as one of the most effective combat systems in the world. Thai Boxing is well over a thousand years old and today still retains the values of discipline and courage practiced on the battlefields throughout the history of Thailand.
Thai Boxing is often referred to as the ‘art of eight limbs’. Hence, here at Rob Lock’s Academy we practice all striking techniques, including punches, kicks, knees and elbows. Controlled sparring for the beginner, progressing to more freestyle for the advanced student is a feature of a class here at the Academy. Since the techniques taught are very effective, all classes are structured and a code of safety in the sessions is strictly adhered to.
Muay Thai Boxing can be practiced by men, women and children as a realistic fighting sport, but can also be a fantastic way to keep fit.

Junior Thai Boxing classes at Rob Lock’s Academy are a mixture of fitness, fun and motivational training. We train the use of punch, kick, knee and elbow with a strict code of safety at all times.
