Muay Thai Foundations Class
This is an introductory level class geared towards students with little to no experience in Muay Thai. The main focus of this class is to build familiarity with the basic techniques and building blocks of the art of Muay Thai. At Pentagon MMA, we firmly believe that a strong foundation is the key to success, in addition to being a major factor in preventing injuries. The fundamentals class is structured to allow students to progress at their own pace, without the stress of feeling overwhelmed by more advanced techniques and students. All new students with little to no Muay Thai experience are required to take at least twelve Foundations classes before participating in more advanced classes. This class requires boxing gloves, hand wraps, and shin guards.
Muay Thai All Levels Class
After completion of at least twelve Foundations classes, students may join the All Levels class. This class will build on techniques learned in the Foundations class and allow students the opportunity to perfect these techniques. This class requires boxing gloves, hand wraps, and shin guards.
Muay Thai Clinch, Knees, and Elbows
This is an intermediate to advanced level class focusing on clinch drills and the use of knees and elbows in Muay Thai. This class requires boxing gloves, hand wraps, and shin guards.
Muay Thai/MMA ADVanced Sparring (Elite Membership)
This is an advanced sparring class available only to students who are Elite Members and have been formally invited to the Fight Team by our Head Instructor. Under the supervision of an instructor, students spar at a high intensity and are required to wear mouthguards and groin protectors (for our male students) at all times. The Pentagon MMA Fight Team also trains during these sparring sessions, and sparring will vary from Muay Thai to MMA to Jiu Jitsu depending on what training is needed for upcoming competitions.

women's Bag circuit

You will need boxing gloves and hand wraps for this class.
