Santa Fe Muay Thai is New Mexico’s only World Boxing Association and Thai Boxing Association of the USA certified school. We bring a the highest level curriculum to Santa Fe through our certified instructors – who continue with their own ongoing training and a number of whom are still active fighters.
Classes are typically a combination of technique review and refining, pad-work, glove drills, clinch-work, and timing sparring AKA “Play Fighting”. For our more advanced students, we have weekly ‘hard’ sparring, as well as offer the opportunity to step in the ring and compete in Muay Thai. Muay Thai is also a great striking base for those interested in training and competing in mixed martial arts (MMA). We also offer classed specifically geared towards beginners and Spanish speakers on Saturdays.
