Muay Thai, or Thai Boxing; also referred to as the 'Art of Eight Limbs' combines the use of fists, elbows, knees, shins and feet. It is an effective striking art known for it's tremendous power and raw simplicity. At El Matador we make it fun and easy for all skill sets and fitness levels to learn this martial art in a supportive and welcoming environment. It is effective in self defence and a great all round workout for overall fitness and cardiovascular performance. Muay Thai encompasses great conditioning for the mind, body and soul all while giving you the confidence needed for real-life self defence situations. One of the biggest misinterpretations of Muay Thai is that it is just a sport of violence, but like most Martial Arts, Muay Thai cultivates important values rich in tradition and has the power to humble, discipline and inspire anyone who practices it. Remember: you don't have to fight to practice Muay Thai here at El Matador Martial Arts.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a grappling based, ground fighting Martial Art that utilises skill and technique to control and resist one's opponent in ways that force him or her to submit. Under the careful guidance of our BJJ Professor you will learn the necessary techniques to improve your position in ways that help you overcome greater size, strength and aggression by using superior leverage, grip and position. BJJ is rich in mental and physical growth because this Martial Art has a high demand on both. Whether you want to learn a new skill, continue practice or get ready for competition, when it comes to your Brazilian Jiu Jitsu journey, EL Matador has something for you.
