FLINDERS UNI MUAY THAI CLUB
About Muay Thai
Muay Thai is a combat martial art from Thailand that uses stand-up striking along with various clinching techniques. It is a physical and mental discipline known as "the art of eight weapons" because it is characterized by the combined use of fists, elbows, knees, shins and feet. Muay Thai has a long and rich history in South East Asia, where it evolved on the battlefield many centuries ago.
Today Muay Thai is a highly popular sport and is practiced by men and women for fitness and self-defence as well as competition. It is being recognised more and more as not only a highly effective martial art but an excellent form of exercise that improves physical strength/conditioning and promotes weight loss.
Flinders Muay Thai has been operating at the University for 30 years, providing quality training to a diverse range of students. Head trainer, Mr. Alan Wong has over 40 years’ experience in the sport and has produced state, national and world champions from right here at Flinders Uni.
