Muay Thai, also known as Thai Boxing, is a contact sport which uses punches, kicks, knees and elbows. The sport originated in Thailand (then known as Siam) around the 13th century and is now practiced throughout the world. As well as being an exciting spectator sport, with professional bouts globally televised, Thai Boxing is an accessible sport which offers numerous benefits, including:

Here at All Powers we are keen for our members to have the opportunity to take part in an interclub. It is a great experience which takes you out of your comfort zone and allows you to try your technique on a willing partner/opponent. We hold an interclub at All Powers approx. every 3 months as well as attending and supporting interclubs held at other gyms. For students wishing to compete in Muay Thai, interclubs are an excellent way to progress in their fight journey, and for those wishing to test themselves they are a perfect goal.
