Dean will review a brief history of the evolution of Southeast Asian Martial Arts, the basic Muay Thai stance and movements, an overview of "the science of 8 limbs," and finish with a meditation to harden the body and strengthen the internal organs. There is nothing Dean is more passionate about than teaching Muay Thai, so please come to this workshop ready to learn self defense, as well as some secret mechanics to move more gracefullly and efficiently.
