Welcome To The Mittmaster Muay Thai Syllabus

Muay Thai is one of the strongest fighting styles ever developed. 

Muay Thai has been tested and refined over 100's of years in rings around the world. Thai Boxers are notoriously tough and never afraid of a challenge (and are always willing to step up to fight other martial artists regardless of style.)

But perhaps Muay Thai's greatest strength is its simplicity. 

Having trained over 10 styles of martial in the last 30 years, I think Muay Thai is the simplest and that simplicity gives it a massive advantage. 

Because Thai Boxers train the same techniques over and over they get REALLY good at a few techniques

As Bruce Lee famously said...

"I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks one time. I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times"

This is what makes Muay Thai different than many other martial arts. It's simple and battle tested.

My Muay Thai Journey... So Far

I started Thaiboxing when I was 21 years old at Anton St James gym. Anton was one of the first students of Master Toddy (as well as being a master of many other arts). 

Over 10 years Anton taught me all my basic Muay Thai skills including Kicking, Punching, Knees, Elbows & Clinch.

A few years later when I was competing in MMA I had a fight booked against a good stand up opponent. 

I decided I needed to improve my striking so I booked myself five weeks training at Tiger Muay Thai in Phuket before the fight.

(This was back when Tiger only had two rings and nothing else....yes that long ago)

Training in Thailand was FANTASTIC. 

Every day we started at 7 am with a run followed by five rounds on the bags, five rounds on the pads, partner drills, clinching for 20 minutes and then fitness drills until we were sweaty wrecks, 

Then we had breakfast and did it all again at 4 pm. 

Life is so simple when training in Thailand and you get months if not years worth of training condensed in a very short time. Plus because you are training 6 hours a day in 30-degree heat you get REALLY fit!

I went back to Thailand to train twice more before I had kids (which meant the end of that for a while).

Here's a short video of me training at Tiger a looooong time ago (look how thin I was)

Mittmaster Muay Thai Syllabus

The Mittmaster Muay Thai syllabus contains ALL the techniques, drills and tactics I've picked up over the last 20 years training Muay Thai. 

Of course, I've included the core techniques you will learn at every Muay Thai school in the world. 

But, I've also added drills and combos from Dutch Style Muay Thai (which includes more Boxing & footwork than traditional Muay Thai)

And I've included some techniques from the modern era of Muay Thai made famous by the legend that is Saenchai.

Saenchaii has added a wider variety of kicks and fakes than most Thai Boxers use and has lead the way for more creative expression in the art.  

The Mittmaster Muay Thai Syllabus includes nine grades that cover

  • Kicking techniques
  • Kicking combinations
  • Punching techniques
  • Punching combinations
  • Kneeing techniques
  • Elbow techniques
  • Knee & elbow combinations
  • Basic, intermediate and advanced thai pad combinations
  • Entering the clinch safely
  • Off balancing and throwing techniques
  • Sweeps & trips
  • Dutch combos
  • Advanced Muay Thai techniques from Saenchai and other modern-era fighters

You can use the syllabus as it is or edit it to make it your own based on your own Muay Thai journey

The syllabus includes:

  • An editable Muay Thai Syllabus in Word & PDF formats
  • Over 70 support videos showing the techniques, drills, and combinations in detail.
  • 12 Muay Thai conditioning videos where I cover my favourite fitness drills I've learned from my instructors to help fighters get in top condition.
  • Free bonus Muay Thai seminars from my instructors

Thank You. I look forward to training with you inside
