Glow Kicks – 21st May 2021
Our loooooong awaited glow kick class will commence on 21st May 2021.
The intention was to start this in the winter when we had darkness earlier, however, we have had so much excitement and interest that we are pushing on with this as we think it’s imperative for people and their mental wellness to get those endorphin rushes from moving and having FUN.

We are gonna start with the class from 8 pm-9 pm but we may need to adjust the timings depending on the darkness. Make sure you are registered so you get all the up-to-date notifications:

Bank holiday Monday – 31st May 2021
On bank holiday Monday, there will be a joint class from 7 pm to 8 pm. All ages (min. age 5 years old) and abilities are welcome to join in on this class.

Happy Birthday – 5th June 2021
20th anniversary of Phoenix Muay Thai.

Pad Work – 21st June 2021
We will be back to doing pad work, we will also be reintroducing member to member insurance, this hasn’t been necessary during covid due to us only utilising the bags for individual work. When we revert to pad work, this insurance will be mandatory again.
We don’t ask students to join until after 4 weeks of training. After this period students will be required to join.
Insurance: £30 per year.

Celebrations – 26th June 2021
We will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of Phoenix Muay Thai and being out of lockdown CALLING ALL STUDENTS PAST AND PRESENT
I don’t know what we are going to be doing, but trust me, it’s going to be epic.
I am thinking of clearing the walkway and turning it into a club, get DJs on lights the lot. Everyone bring their own beer – drink responsibly, but party like lunatics 🙂

Sparring – 4th July 2021
The return of the sparring class. all students must have their own appropriate equipment, including gum shields, shin pads, appropriate boxing gloves for their size and weight.

New Bags
We have introduced some new branded Phoenix Muay Thai bags up in the training room on a clever pulley system, which I can’t wait for you to see. It means now we can now increase our classes to 18 people all with their own bag station with social distancing in place.

Saturday 12.15 Class
This class used to be the adult only class but we have turned it into an adults and family class. If you are training as a family, all children must be accompanied by and an adult (max 2 children per adult). If your child has trained in the children’s class that day, they can’t train in the adults class too. It is the parents/guardians responsibility to ensure that the children they are supervising are respectful in the training room and do not disturb the other students.


 

In loving memory
We are saddened to announce that during this last lockdown, we have lost 2 beloved Phoenix Phamily members. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families and friends of Rachel West and Michelle Murphy. They will always hold their place in our Phamily.
Rest in peace ladies

Floyd Mayweather’s 50-0 record still best EVER as little-known Thai boxer Wanheng Menayothin finally LOSES 55th fight

FLOYD MAYWEATHER would have breathed a sigh of relief when Wanheng Menayothin’s 54-fight winning streak was ended.

Credit to Joe Miles (sun) 

The Thai boxer, 35, surpassed the American’s incredible 50-0 professional record in 2018.

This led to claims that Menayothin was ‘the best ever’ – which infuriated Mayweather.

The Thai star – who weights just 105lbs – announced his plans to retire at 54-0.

But he reversed that decision to face Thai rival Panya Pradabsri – and then he lost.

Judges scored the title fight 115-113, 115-113, 115-113 in favour of Pradabsri.

Now that he has a record of 54-1, Mayweather is back where he belongs at the top.

The American – who last fought when he beat Conor McGregor in 2017 – hit out at claims that Menayothin was the GOAT.

During an interview with Club Shay Shay, Mayweather fumed: “I’m 50-0 for a reason.

“Right now they got a fighter that’s over in Asia that’s 54-0 and they say, ‘This is the new TBE’, because he’s about to retire.

“I said, ‘Y’all telling me about this fighter that fought one world champion?’

“He’s 54-0 and only beat one world champion?

“This is who you’re trying to call TBE? Okay, y’all are some comedians.”

Mayweather has revealed he will be coming out of retirement for ‘sparring’ matches which will earn him ‘some heavy cash’.

Theo gets his Muay Thai Uniform

The children were presented with their uniform in the Saturday class.
Their parents purchased their uniform as they have watched their progression and recognised their commitment to Phoenix Muay Thai over the past 4-8 weeks.
Kru presented the children with their uniform and explained the importance of the uniform and how it represents our club and how they should act respectfully at all times, especially when they are wearing the club uniform.
Welcome to the Phoenix Phamily.

What’s your New Years resolution?

What’s your New Years resolution?

Is it to get fit?

Lose a few pounds?

Perhaps make some new friends?

Thai boxing may be the answer.

Phoenix Muay Thai is a traditional but friendly Thai boxing club run by Rick Lewis (a Thai Boxing champion who trained under Master Phil Nurse and Grand Master Sken).

What you can expect;

1. Friendly people

2. Children’s classes (from 5 upwards)

3. Expert tuition in Thai boxing

4. To become much more able to defend yourself.

5. You will lose weight and be much fitter (the classes will give you the kind of workout that leaves you sweaty and smiling).

What you won’t get

1. You won’t be forced to do anything you can’t do.

2. You won’t be made to feel uncomfortable.

There are NO joining fees and no monthly payments. It’s just a nice easy £6 per lesson.
