Warrior Gym proudly offers instruction in the National Sport of Thailand—Muay Thai, which is often referred to as Thai Boxing, or Thai Kickboxing. This ancient martial art emphasizes striking techniques from eight points of contact: feet, knees, elbows, and hands. Nearly the entire body is involved in Muay Thai, with the rotation of the hips playing a primary role in every strike. This provides more torque and power than conventional boxing, and more points of contact require different, challenging skill sets. Muay Thai is a common striking base within Mixed Martial Arts fighting, and offers an unprecedented cardiovascular workout that tests agility, strength, and stamina.
Warrior Gym employs the veteran skills of Bumrung Prawatsrichai (Master Danny) to instruct students in the art of Muay Thai. Master Danny has been involved with Muay Thai for over 40 years, having fought in over 350 matches. As a young fighter, he travelled to Japan, where he lived for 5 years, learning Jiu-Jitsu and perfecting his martial arts techniques. Master Danny has also lived and taught in Germany, the Philippines, and Hawaii. Now in his 60s (and still spry enough to take you down), he brings to the table more experience and effective teaching technique than any other Muay Thai instructor in the D.C. area. Master Danny is a living legend.
