Youth Martial Arts

Youth Muay Thai (ages 6-14 yrs)

Muay Thai, translated to English as “Thai Boxing”, is the National sport of Thailand. It is also referred to as the “Art of Eight Limbs” because it involves using one’s punches, kicks, elbows, and knees to create eight points of contact as opposed to two fists which are used in Western Boxing. Unlike the striking arts of kickboxing and boxing which do not allow clinching or holding of an opponent, Muay Thai also utilizes many different clinching techniques that create openings for all of the eight weapons in Muay Thai.

The Cellar Gym is part of The World Thai Boxing Association (WTBA), the oldest and largest Muay Thai Organziation in the World. The WTBA was founded in 1968 by Ajard Surachai “Chair” Sirisute. The WTBA has now expanded to establish affiliate organization in countries around the world. Students of the WTBA go on to become champions and instructors themselves.

Many sports may have some participants seeing more or less playing time than others. This is not the case in the martial arts. Martial arts is an individual sport practiced in a social environment. Your child will learn and train at their own pace, to the best of their ability and potential; while making new friends and building teamwork skills. Every student will be encouraged to deliver their very best; each and every class. And as your child progresses through the rank levels, they will consistently face new and exciting challenges that bring them to the next level.

What Others Say

” For those who have not heard of Cichon, he is a stand-up fighting wizard who runs CELLAR FIGHT AND FITNESS. I was blown away watching Chris hold mitts/pads and discussing foot work, head movement and combinations. I have seen a lot of people hold mitts/pads in my time, but no one with the deep understanding and fluidity that I was seeing from Chris. “Shane DeZee (Pro MMA Fighter) via
