Master Moves of Muay Thai - The Science of the Eight Limbs
The Tandez Academy's Muay Thai/Kickboxing program teaches a reformulated Muay Thai curriculum founded by Erik Paulson, former world light heavyweight Shooto champion. The curriculum is a three dimensional martial art form that involves kicking, punching, and clinching.
TAMA Muay Thai is a hybrid striking system which focuses on explosive techniques from Boxe Francaise Savate, Muay Thai/Thai Boxing, Boxing, Jun Fan Kickboxing, and Panantukan (Filipino Boxing). In TAMA Muay Thai, students will learn a blend of kicks, punches, elbows, and knees from each art. These skills are easily translated into MMA, kickboxing, and self-defense situations. From glove drills, focus mitts, Thai pads, to sparring, students will have a variety of striking options.
From Savate, our kickboxing program draws its light footwork and evasiveness. Savate is known for being highly mobile, and constantly moving makes you harder to hit and allows you to attack at angles. STX also capitalizes on Savate's many fakes and setups so that the opponent is constantly guessing as to which attack is real and what is just a misleading fake. Following the misleading attacks is a system of extremely fluid combinations that help to allow the fighter to land more hits than the opponent while moving in and out of range at good angles. On defense, STX draws from some of the unique defense and counter techniques that help to keep your opponent out of his game and help you to set up your shots more like a chess match. Savate is also a much longer range kicking method.
