“The art of eight limbs”, or Muay Thai, is one of Singapore’s most popular martial arts and for a good reason. The discipline focuses on simple, effective movements – think knee strikes and swift kicks – that are easy to learn, and practical for when the time comes to defend oneself. Not to mention, Muay Thai training is also known for it being a great way to help keep in shape.
So here’s a list of some of the best Muay Thai gyms and Muay Thai classes that Singapore has to offer, even for beginners.
(Note: While fitness gyms have been asked to close as we revert to Phase 2, Muay Thai gyms are considered martial arts studios and most are allowed to remain in operation. However, check with the gym you’re interested in before you head down to check on the latest update concerning their operational statuses, safe-distancing measures, and other government regulations that may affect them.)
