Warwick Thai Boxing Club is one of the biggest, most active and boasts one of the highest rates of female participation amongst university Muay Thai clubs. We provide quality, purposeful training suitable for all experience levels throughout the year. For the more competitive, there are also regular opportunities to face off against other universities in organised fight nights. It's not all just work though as we also host regular socials throughout the year and head out on 2 tours, as well as an annual ball!
Our weekly sessions focus on improving technique through drilling combos or general fitness, involving strength and conditioning exercises and extended padwork rounds. Sessions are open and suitable for all experience levels, feel free to join at any point during the year!
In term 1, we hold a comprehensive 7 week-long 'Bootcamp' programme focused on helping complete beginners develop a solid Muay Thai foundation. The availability is limited and you don't want to miss out!
All equipment for the sessions are provided, just remember to bring water!
Optional sparring is also available in our advanced sessions for those that want to take part (subject to approval from the Team Captain).
Newcomers are welcome to come along to sessions at any point in the year. YOUR FIRST SESSION IS FREE so why not come and try it out?
We also pride ourselves on our high female participation rates in the club. We have a strong female presence in the exec, as well as running women-only sessions once a week to create a safe space for those who may be intimidated by joining a typically male-dominated sport.
As the year goes on, we also strongly encourage our female members to join advanced sessions and participate in interclub if they feel up to the challenge! Check out this short documentary that was made about our 2019-2020 Club President and her experience fighting at an interclub:
