Muay Thai ()มวยไทย) is a combat sport from Thailand that uses stand-up striking along with various clinching techniques. This physical and mental discipline is characterized by the combined use of fists, elbows, knees and shins as striking weapons. Thai Boxing has always been associated with a high level of fitness and endurance which makes a full-contact Muay Thai fighter a very efficient fighting machine.
Whilst these are tough sessions (think Insanity based on fighting arts) everyone works at their own rate, and can therefore pace themselves according to their own current fitness. We work in 5 minute rounds, with 5x1 minute different exercises per round, followed by a 1 minute rest. Everybody is welcome, so come on down and get that beach body you've always deserved. We can also help you with a diet plan too if required.
Fighter Squad is what we call our weekend sessions where we concentrate more on physical contact and what it takes to build a fighter. You don't have to be a fighter to train at these sessions, but you will be training alongside active fighters of all different levels. Sessions consist of sparring, clinch work, stamina drill, as well as perfecting techniques and defences.
Although Al was on his own when he founded WAKT back in 1994, it would be nothing without the strong team that subsequently evolved.
Johnny has been part of WAKT pretty much since the beginning. He now runs the WAKT full time gym in Bodmin
Daz has also been a huge part of WAKT since the early days, and is literally the man you want in your corner.
Elly joined Team WAKT in 1997, and as well as fighting at an amateur level and training in Thailand many times, she now enjoys teaching the art of Muay Thai to our Under 14's
