We are very excited to announce that we now have a weekly Thai Boxing class at Kingston Jiu Jitsu. The classes are held at St.John’s Parish Hall on Tuesday evenings from 8.15-9.30 pm. These classes are open to everyone, not just JJB London members, and can be attended for a drop-in fee of £20.
Thai boxing, or Muay Thai as the Thai people call it, is a traditional art of self-defence of the Thais. It is different from international boxing in that in the Thai style of unarmed fighting, feet, elbows and knees are used as well as fists.
Our Muay Thai classes are taught by Lee Verdova, the Head Instructor (Kru) of Esher Muay Thai. Lee has trained in Ayyuttya and Bangkok in Thailand under Arjan (Master) Kanock and Master Toddy and in the UK under Master Boon and Kru Jonny Boon. Lee qualified as a Kru (Instructor) under the World Muay Thai Federation and the M.T.I.A (Muay Thai International Association), and is also qualified as a Reps Gym Instructor and an M.T.I.A Referee. Lee has over twenty years of experience in striking Martial Arts and a wealth of fight experience!
