We are a well-established and highly motivated club that offers the ancient discipline of Muay Thai, Thailand’s national sport. Muay Thai is an exciting ring sport comprising of specialist punches, powerful kicks, standing and flying knees, stand up clinching, and throws. It is a devastating striking discipline widely used in MMA. We welcome all abilities and all ages. Our tailored classes allow those with no previous experience to quickly gain intricate technique and boost their physical ability. We are the biggest martial arts club in the university, and this is simply down to the professionalism of our coaches and the friendly atmosphere we create to ensure everyone gets the most out of their training session.
We provide boxing gloves and other protective kit at no extra cost to you, however if you can bring your own during these times that would be great.
Our training times are:
Wednesday: 18:00 – 19:00
Friday: 18:30 - 20:00
Sunday: 14:30 - 15:30, 16:00 – 17:00
Each session is run in Pitts Gym, located opposite Robbins Halls.
Please do not attend training if you show any symptoms relating to Covid-19. We will be conforming to the government guidelines regarding social distancing so we will not be able to practice clinching or throws on each other in training.
Each session costs only £3 or you can pay £25 a month for access to all sessions that month. Additionally, your first session with us will be completely free of charge. You can also come to a session to spectate if you’d like to see if Muay Thai offers what you are looking for.
Get to know the people you’re training with! We often go out for a few drinks after training sessions to unwind, we will be taking Covid-19 restrictions into consideration when planning. We also plan socials throughout the year, previously they have included:
- Themed nights of alcohol infused madness, riddled with tasks and challenges
- Trips to TOTAL WIPEOUT
- Laser tag
- Film nights and bowling
- Watch fight nights
Join our Facebook group where we will announce all social events!
Our events include hosting and participating in interclubs. Interclubs provide an opportunity for those that wish to showcase their ability in a controlled environment and challenge other competitors from other universities. This is a great chance to push your ability and test it against somebody else. All events of this nature are strictly controlled and participants must pass a fitness and ability test set out by our coach. These events are also a good chance to spectate and support your club and university.
At PUTK we are big on charity, we like to do a couple of events a year to help benefit others. Previous events have included:
- Plymouth half marathon
- A 12-hour sparring session
This year our intentions are to boost this exposure further; we have some great ideas that don't all include physical exertion!
