I've just come into the DC area, and I've been searching on the net, but nothing is really coming up for boxing, kickboxing, or MT. If anyone has any references, please post. Thanks.

I'm considering adding Muay Thai to the arsenal. How are classes typically run? Is Thai terminology used? Are there any forms or patterns (Kata)?

I'm considering adding Muay Thai to the arsenal.

Its not as simple as that, IMO

How are classes typically run?

I can't speak for all classes, but mine typically start with some warm-ups and stretches, shadowboxing, bagwork, then pad/partner drills. We try to spar at the end of every class, which is voluntary. We also mix in conditioning drills such as calisthenics and plyometrics in between our MuayThai drills.

Is Thai terminology used?

Again, I can only speak for my own classes. We do use Thai terminology, but not exclusively, so its not like you're going to have a lot of trouble understanding what we're talking about.

Are there any forms or patterns (Kata)?

Not in the sense that you're probably thinking. In Muay Thai, we practice combinations. Combinations, of course, are a type of pattern, but they are dynamic. There are not set rules that govern your combinations such that every students combination will look exactly the same as their classmates. There are certain "guidelines" in regards to how to do a technique properly and what constitutes proper footwork, but each combination is subject to each students interpretation.

I hope that makes sense.

Hey Flying Tiger,

Do you train with Robert Dale Pendleton and the Flying Tigers in town?
I've been looking for the dojo! I'm a big fan of the Flying Tigers. He's got such a great reputation, but I think they recently moved and I can't find the address.

Could you pm me if you do?
