The Muay Thai Sangha Internal Arts morning training (mainly Earth and Water elements) has a free-flowing effect on the mind with the purpose of improving our receptive senses under different amounts of pressure. The morning practice consists of connecting with the life force, how to extend our consciousness to our opponent’s energy field, and how to stick and flow with any attack whilst maintaining balance and proper body mechanics. The training is mainly based on qigong, takedowns, and submission grappling.
How we train is what we become. When there is no aggression in our training our mind feels relaxed, present, aware, and ready to flow with whatever comes. The adaptability this training instills becomes such a strong ally in most situations in our daily lives. After all, we can’t always control what happens in life, it’s how we choose to respond to the events that occur that makes all the difference in our lives.
In the evening we practice Muay Thai Sangha Fighting Arts (mainly Fire and Air elements). This training is a foundation of Muay Thai Chaiya and Krabi Krabong (Thai weapons) which implements concepts from Muay Thai, Silat, and some Wing Chun.
Through the concepts of the biomechanics’ exercises, our training covers body alignment, footwork, and coordination drills for evasions and counter-attacks following the philosophy of self-defense. Pad work and Sparring sessions are also emphasized for advanced students to engrain a deep understanding of distance and proper timing.
In our school we believe strongly in the balance of opposites.
By combining the two methods of training – sensitivity and awareness in the morning and strength and power in the evening – we are able to attain much greater results in our practice.
Our teaching time in the school goes from Monday morning to Saturday afternoon. We don’t have classes on Saturday evenings or Sundays. And we recommend that all the students who wish to come and practice within the group, come with an open heart and with a mind empty of ideas or methods as this will ensure the maximum benefit of their experience.
