Muay Thai is a very practical and lethal martial art that originated in Thailand. It has evolved into a growing combat sport. Muay Thai is a stand-up fighting sport that allows for punches, elbows, knees and kicks. Sweeping and “dumping” your opponent is also permitted. Muay Thai is an excellent way to learn stand-up self-defense and enhance one’s self and spiritual awareness.
Like Muay Thai, arnis was originally developed as a form of self-defense. Arnis originated in the Philippines with varying opinions about the exact root. Farmers used to use their bladed grass cutting tool called a “bolo” to defend themselves against Spanish invaders and other intruders who committed genocide on the islands. Today, arnis has evolved into the national sport of the Philippines and is predominantly taught first with rattan sticks. The stick is said to be an extension of the hand. There are many different schools of arnis. The lineage that is taught at Sister Fit comes from Grandmaster Benjamin Luna Lema, founder of LESKAS/LSAI and Grandmaster Mang Fil V. Buena, founder of Buena Mano self-defense systems.
The facility is VERY private. The entrance to the facility is monitored and highly secure. There are no men on site and no possibility of viewing from the passing public. No Peeping Toms!
There will be non-offensive music sometimes playing at the facility.
You can attend the classes that are suited to your level of fitness and skill. You must pass your assessment before moving on to the next level of programming.
Upon your assessment and grading, you will receive a certificate of completion. There are no belt rankings in Muay Thai, boxing, or our style of arnis.
There are specific classes for kids and teens coming soon. Otherwise, classes are for adult women.
