Twisted Fitness is lucky to have the oldest running Muay Thai Program in the city of Madison. When we opened, we were blessed to have been joined by Madison Muay Thai to be our instructors. This program is fantastic. For those looking to compete professionally at Muay Thai Kickboxing or MMA, look no further. This program has what you are looking for. Just looking to get in shape? No problem, jump right in. Our qualified instructors, some of whom have trained in Thailand, are here to help you reach any goal you have.
As the name might suggest, Muay Thai is a sport that comes to us from Thailand and is actually the national sport of Thailand. While there is no exact historical time frame for the founding of Muay Thai, it seems to go back as far as the people of Thailand can remember. Until 50 years ago or so, it was fought without gloves and was a much more dangerous event. Now, being the national sport of Thailand, it is held in gigantic stadiums and is televised.
The instruction of Muay Thai at Twisted Fitness is second to none. You will learn how to punch, kick, knee, elbow, and more. You will have the opportunity to hit Thai pads and hand pads as well as learn how to hold these pads for other students. You will learn basic strikes, combinations, and if/when you feel ready, you will even be able to spar with other students. While sparring is not required for any student who is not interested in competition, MMA fighters and Thai Boxers will have to attend sparring classes in preparation for their fights.
Prepare for a lot of fun and a hard workout, this is something you will love to train and will definitely get you into shape!
