The Thai Teens program is for ages 13 upwards and mixes authentic Muay Thai Kickboxing with a fun and challenging environment.

The Thai Teens classes are where the Juniors take their kickboxing to the next level. These classes are still fun and safe but have a more mature approach to training now. There are less games and more detail is spent with the techniques and the importance of correct drilling and sparring. The importance of self-discipline and conditioning is also still promoted along with continued respect for both their fellow students and their instructors. This age group often sees the largest differences in size between the younger and older students in the class, so the instructors look at keeping the training safe with no mismatches in training partners.

The Art of Muay Thai

Muay Thai is a combat sport from Thailand and has history dating back over 3000 years. It uses stand-up striking with various clinching techniques (holding your opponent). Described as “the art of the eight limbs”, athletes have eight weapons at their disposal and can use boxing, elbows, knees and kicks. The wide range of techniques utilised make it unparalleled in the world of stand up fighting.

Muay Thai can be trained for self defense, fitness or competition.

Classes at Aberdeen Martial Arts Group are specifically structured for children of varying ages.

  • Tiny Thai’s: 4-7
  • Thai Kids: 8-12
  • Thai Teens (Over 16s are permitted to enter the adult classes however this must be cleared with Head Instructors).

Each group focuses on slightly different elements of the art that are seen as appropriate for that particular age group. So for instance the Tiny Thai’s explore group interaction and good behavior (standing still when games are being explained). Whereas the Teens focus is closer to the art and looks at the self discipline of working hard and pushing through times when the teen is tired from the drills and exercises.

Sparring takes place in the classes too and is a controlled and a fun way for the juniors to develop their techniques and timing.  They wear suitable equipment for protection, such as gum shields, groin guards and body shields. The older Juniors sometimes are allowed to hit the face and in these instances the student also wears a head guard.

I managed to get on to the fight team after a year at AMAG, which I was really chuffed with myself and was looking forward to some competition.
