Equipment Needs

Why must I purchase equipment?

Talon will provide equipment for trial classes. All members are required to have thier own equipment after the trial sessions have ended. This rule will be enforced for Drop In Members as well. Maintaining a healthy gym is top priority and having your own equipment ensures your health. Talon does carry equipment and Rhonda Rae can assist with your specific needs, however you are not required to purchase items from Talon  FightGear.

Hand Wraps

Shoes are not allowed during Muay Thai.

Will I get hit? Yes, it is a contact sport however we learn control before we learn anything else. At Talon we pride ourselves in teaching technique which leads to controlled striking.

Do I have to fight?  Absolutely not! It is perfectly normal to be a practicioner of the  art. Does every golfer participate in a tournament?  No. We encourage students to train in Muay Thai and enjoy the benefits it brings to your daily life.

Do I have to have a partner?  No, some drills are designed for partners, however you are welcome to do the combinations on a hanging bag, it won't give you the reality of a moving person who counters but  you certainly may use the bag if that is your preference.

Are there age limits? Yes, and no. Talon Muay Thai requires students be 8 years of age to register for group instruction younger students may register for one on one instruction. There is no ceiling on the age requirement!
