Diesel Gym’s Muay Thai Team (formerly, London Sitnarong) was orginally started back in 2003 by kru Cliff Bura and under the guidance of Grandmaster Sken Kaewpadung.
Muay Thai is two thousand years of combat history distilled into the ‘science of eight limbs’. Unlike most types of striking, Muay Thai permits the use of devastating elbow and knee strikes, in addition to stand up wrestling, sweeps and throws.
Its power and simplicity mean it’s widely regarded as the world’s most effective martial art and it has exploded globally in recent years, winning fans both as a breath-taking ring sport and a vital component of mixed martial arts. In the process it’s made superstars of two-times K1 World Max champion Buakaw Por Pramuk and ‘Ong-Bak’ actor Tony Jaa, as well as countless big MMA names including Alistair Overeem, Anderson Silva, Joanna Jędrzejczyk and Matt Brown.
The Diesel MT (Muay Thai) Striking System is a unique and successful system enabling students to gain a strong foundation (invaluable skill set) in Muay Thai with transferable skills in all other areas of stand-up striking, including MMA, K1, Free Style Kickboxing and Boxing – with Muay Thai being the main umbrella of the Diesel MT Striking System. The Diesel MT Striking System is designed specifically to allow participants to challenge opponents from other striking arts and be successful in doing so, enabling Diesel’s fighters to successfully compete across the globe and collect numerous international titles.
