"THE ONLY LIMITS THAT EXITS, ARE THE ONES YOU CREATE YOURSELF"
K-1 & MUAY THAI
Are two of the most intense and exciting stand-up fighting arts ever invented. Both require laser focus and commitment to train and compete, and are a sure-fire way of increasing health and wellbeing if you only want to get fit rather than hit. Fusing a multitude of martial arts disciplines such as Kickboxing, karate and kung fu, K-1 kickboxing was created in Japan by Kazuyoshi Ishii in 1993.
K-1 emphasises free-flowing action, with only minimal clinching allowed as participants use low and high kicks, punches and knees to pile up points and knock out opponents.
While K-1 is still relatively new, muay thai - otherwise known as thai boxing - is deeply rooted in tradition and inspired many of its more modern striking counterparts. Muay thai was developed by the first Thai army, designed to forge the human body into the ultimate close-combat weapon.
Also referred to as The Art of Eight Limbs, it allows the use of fists, shins, knees and elbows as points of contact, with the aim of inflicting maximum damage on opponents.
