1Do I need my own boxing gloves?
If you're just starting out training and don't own your own boxing gloves, you are more than welcome to borrow some from our spares box. We have plenty of spare gloves at the gym for people to use free of charge, however if you plan to train regularly we would strongly advise investing in your own gloves. We do have various gloves available to purchase at the gym or if you'd prefer to order your own but would like some advice or recommendations - just speak to our coaches and they'll be happy to help.
2What do I need for training?
Any sparring is completely optional. Most of our mixed level classes are technique and fitness focused (we have dedicated classes where our fighters can spar). If there are any sparring rounds included in general classes, alternative drills are provided to anyone who doesn't want to spar.
3Will I need a gumshield / mouthguard?
Gumshields are only required to be worn for sparring and advanced level training. Our classes are predominantly non-contact (ie: pad work / bag work) and so you don't need to wear a gumshield for training (unless you really want to) but its always helpful to bring one along just in case!
4Are the classes beginner friendly?
You're more than welcome to come along and try it out as this class is aimed at all levels, but it is more suited to those with a little Thai Boxing training experience. Complete beginners would be gain more from attending either our Beginners Muay Thai Classes or one of our 6 Week Beginners Thai Boxing Courses, which we run multiple times throughout the year.
5Do I need to come with a partner?
Absolutely not! You'll be training with a group of like-minded individuals and so if you come alone and require a partner for the drills - our coaches will pair you up with an appropriate partner. If ever there's an odd number of participants - one of our instructors / current members will usually join in too!
