Thai boxing is one of the most sought after martial arts today.

The 'Science of 8 Limbs' as it is traditionally referred to offers the prospective student a martial art that literally translates itself from the ring to self-defense with little or no modifications. Utilizing kicks, punches, elbows and knee strikes, one can gain multiple benefits of self-defense, cardio, fat-burning and muscle toning as well as strength training.

Our instructors are certified in the UWMTA, USMTA and TBA.

Doug holds the rank of Arjarn in the UWMTA & USMTA and rank of Kru in the TBA.
