MUAY THAI

Training Concept


Muay Thai training at the Ringside Gym© is based on three core values: safety, holistic training, and the collective development of our members’ skills.

Safety

Safety in training means we pay particular attention to teaching newcomers the demanding movement sequences such as punching, kicking, leverage, and throwing techniques carefully and in detail. Our qualified trainers pay specific attention to the execution of the individual exercises and movements. This applies to both new and advanced members. Experience has shown that the risk of self-injury during training is exceptionally high when exercises are performed in an uncontrolled manner. For example, if a half-circle kick is not supported by lifting the heel and rotating on the front ball of the foot, this places enormous strain on the knee joint, leading to long-term injuries. This is why all exercises need to be performed with precision, strength, and concentration. It is, therefore, better to perform only five clean kicks during your training than ten unclean ones!

Traditional Thai boxing is one of the world’s most dangerous martial arts, so it is important not to endanger others during training or injure them through carelessness or exuberance. We always make all our course members aware that punches, kicks, and especially attacks with the elbow carry an exceptionally high risk of injury. Therefore, you can only attempt our sparring courses after a long training phase and with enough experience. During this time, our trainers constantly assess and analyze your training progress and then decide together whether you are ready for competition preparation. In the courses, we ensure punches and kicks are performed without excessive aggression or force. Only when our members are ready for a higher level of training, for example, in the intermediate or advanced group courses, does the training intensify accordingly. In addition, everyone is free to learn Thai boxing with us without actively participating in the sparring sessions. Not everyone who trains with us will become an active competitor, and that is perfectly fine.

If you cannot perform specific exercises properly or have other medical disabilities, speak to our trainers directly. We also take the issue of protective equipment very seriously in our courses. Without suitable equipment, such as a mouthguard or the right training boxing gloves, you may not be able to participate in all exercises. As Muay Thai is a full-contact sport, personal hygiene and adequate cleaning of your protective equipment are also crucial. You should, therefore, always turn up to training in a fresh sports outfit and pay particular attention to airing, cleaning, and caring for your equipment after training. You can find exactly what protective equipment you need for a successful start to Muay Thai training and how best to use it on the Muay Thai – Equipment & Sportswear page.- Equipment & Sportswear page.


Don’t be afraid of injuries! We make sure that the focus is always on having fun during training.


Holistic Training

Our focus lies on holistic techniques, the theoretical background, and key elements such as clinching, knee strikes, and elbows.

Holistic training means integrating modern and traditional Thai boxing techniques into our training program. Nowadays, there are many ways to work up a sweat through so-called fitness boxing, kickboxing, or other similar subcategories. If you decide to train Muay Thai at the Ringside Gym©, you should realize that learning this ancient form of martial arts means more than just working out on a punching bag.

Our trainers are happy to teach you the practical and theoretical aspects of attack and counter-attack techniques. We place particular emphasis on clinching in our courses, which is often only casually incorporated into Muay Thai training. However, our experience shows that clinching is just as much a part of the core of any Thai boxing training as a knee strike or a punch with the elbow.


In this context, we are particularly proud to teach Thai boxing in its original ways. For example, we regularly invite guest trainers and teachers from Thailand to visit us in Germany. In seminars and exchange programs initiated exclusively by the Ringside Gym©, our members get the opportunity to develop an extensive repertoire of fighting techniques. This way, we ensure your fighting knowledge is not overly focused on a single trainer’s style and training methods. This provides valuable input for improving your individual fighting style from different perspectives. Therefore, the direct exchange with Thai trainers has been part of the recipe for the success of Muay Thai training at Ringside Gym© for many years.

Experienced exchange with Thai guest trainers at the Ringside Gym© promotes a versatile repertoire of Muay Thai fighting techniques and enriches individual fighting styles from different perspectives.

No shortcuts! With us, you get the complete Muay Thai experience.


Group training

In the last point on our list, we emphasize once again that we always teach Thai boxing in small to medium-sized groups. Although there are only two opponents in the ring, we train and learn as a team in our groups. Our body principle involves swapping training partners as often as possible to create new stimuli and prepare for the continually changing competition challenges. Weaker participants benefit from this principle, particularly those who may not have the time to train regularly. Even after more extended absences, members are quickly brought back up to the group’s current level of knowledge through forced rotation and thus effectively integrated into the team.

Over the years, this way of group training has proven to be highly effective. The resulting group dynamics, joint learning, and playful training add extra fun to the exercises, especially in our courses for children and young people.


Do you have any questions, requests, or suggestions regarding the training content of our Thai boxing courses? Then don’t hesitate to let us know. We are always happy to receive feedback and requests for improving the training or the general process.

See you at the gym!
