From the Sensei

I love this system of fitness because I think this is very effective and with every drop of sweat I can see and feel that we are travelling on the way to fitness and happiness. I also love it because anyone can do it. Competitive muay thai as a martial is not for everyone to pursue as a carreer in their lives. But with this system you can use it as a defense system as well as a fitness system which will make your life happier and tranquil. Therefore you can travel on two different ways of happiness at one go. After every practice hour you will feel so happy and also fit and relaxed.


This is a fitness program that you train your body with the techniques of Kick Boxing and Muay Thai (Thai Boxing) with the rhythm of the music. Get fit and also learn a Self Defense System that will keep you SAFE on the streets.


LEARN the secrets of the 2 martial arts from the expert who has been in the rings and had experienced every strike live during his martial arts career. Not like fitness teachers well advertised watch and learn DVD systems. Join us every Wednesday and Friday at 7PM.
