With its origins dating back to ancient battlefield tactics of the Siamese (or Thai) army, Muay Thai is one of the most effective and practical of the striking arts. Evolving from Krabi-Krabong – which literally translates to ‘sword and baton’ – this martial art harks back to the hand-to-hand tactics employed by fearsome Thai warriors.
Located in Mona Vale, Ortiz Martial Arts Academy offers Muay Thai classes in the Northern Beaches region, serving those from Warriewood to Palm Beach and everywhere in between.
Improve your fitness, strength and confidence by learning Muay Thai
Known as the ‘King of the Ring’ in kickboxing circles, Muay Thai employs a wide range of tactics designed to wear down and knock out an opponent; common movements include punches, kicks, elbows, knees, standing grappling and head-butts. This strain of martial art focuses on developing technique, power, speed and also superior cardiovascular endurance. Physical attributes aside, this sport also aims to develop mental strength; fighting spirit is a highly valued trait in kickboxing circles.
Commonly referred to as Thai Boxing, this martial art has become very popular here in Australia over recent years. At Ortiz Martial Arts Academy, we value the history and tradition of this sport. Our aim is to pass on this ancient art in a safe, modern environment – promoting health and fitness in the process. In terms of safety, Thai boxing employs sophisticated pad training that evolved with the aim of keeping fighters healthy between fights.
Outside the ring, this sport has been embraced by practitioners from a variety of areas, including self-defence, military, law enforcement and other sporting communities. An excellent way to keep fit, many are turning to Thai boxing in order to improve strength, muscle tone and cardiovascular fitness.
