MUAY THAI AT RENEGADE

Muay Thai is the national sport in Thailand that has exploded in popularity worldwide.

Originally developed as a form of unarmed self defence, Muay Thai, also known as ‘The Art of Eight Limbs’, combines punches, kicks, knees, elbows as well as clinch work.

As a sport Muay Thai is contested in a ring with gloves, pro bouts being 5X3 minute rounds. Outside of Thailand many countries have semi-pro bouts with elbows being fairly recently introduced. The sports popularity has grown in parallel with the popularity of Mixed Martial Arts because Muay Thai is renowned for being the best stand up fighting style.

Our fight team boasts UK ranked fighters, British and European Champions at pro level.

ANDY

Andy Hall started training at Renegade Gym in 2011 having previously trained at Minatours Gym when he was younger. He quickly became an established part of the team always at the gym training hard and helping others.

He took to Muay Thai very well and had a good understanding of the sport and not only trained hard but also studied fights and other fighters and is constantly trying to improve himself. Andy had 3 fights for Renegade with 2 wins and 1 loss. Both wins were through stoppages.

In Andy’s last fight he broke his hand and had to make the tough choice to retire from fighting. Because of his understanding of the sport and work ethic it was natural for him to carry on as a coach and Andy has proven to be a great addition to Renegade Fitness Academy.
