A long history dating back almost two thousand years. Kings that once ruled Thailand made Thai Boxing (or Muay Thai), part of military training. As Hockey is the Canadian national sport, Thailand recognized Muay Thai as theirs. Muay Thai is referred to as the science of eight limbs as the hands, elbows, shins and knees are all used extensively in this art. Modern-day Kick Boxing (K1) was developed as an introduction to Thai Boxing.
Muay Thai is referred to as the “Art of Eight Limbs” because it makes use of punches, kicks, elbows and knee strikes, thus using eight “points of contact”, as opposed to the two points used in boxing and four points used in kickboxing. Muay Thai became widespread internationally in the twentieth century, when it’s practitioners defeated notable practitioners of other martial arts.

I am by no means a morning person, but the classes at P4P are worth getting out of bed early for! I have tried other gyms and countless fitness programs but quickly lost interest due to repetition and lack of results. P4P changes up each class to keep things interesting and give us new challenges. They are great trainers and provide the motivation I need to reach my fitness goals. Finally I can see and feel results.
I am a 46 year old guy in ok shape but prior to meeting the P4P instructors l didn't know the difference between a straight punch and a hook. After boxing with the P4P Instructors for only a few months, I felt confident enough to step into the ring with a much younger and much bigger opponent who was really trying to lay a beating on me. I am happy to say with P4P's training I was able to hold my own. P4P instructors are very professional, knowledgeable but most of all patient. If you're looking to get your boxing game on, novice or experienced he is your man.
I've been a member for many years and I can honestly say I've never felt more a part of a community than here at P4P. The team is amazing from ownership to coaches, students and everyone in between. By far the best martial arts experience I've had. It's been an honour to train amongst champions.
This is an incredible gym, a must try for people that want to get involved in MMA.
Having the pleasure and privilege of sitting under the learning tree of some of the best MMA instructors and P4P Coaches has been both a humbling and truly rewarding life experience. As someone who has only been learning the true art of MMA for about 3 months, I can say, without hesitation that the team at P4P has pushed me beyond my perceived physical and mental boundaries, and has enabled me to continually progress and hone my skills as a fighter. My intention when I started at Pound for Pound was to explore new health and fitness opportunities outside of traditional weight lifting. However, in just three months, I feel I have become fully entrenched in the Mixed Martial Arts Culture thanks to the world-class instruction I receive on a daily basis. I have a great respect for this facility and the coaches who continually look to enhance my strengths, eliminate my weaknesses, and that respect is given right back to me. What began as a hobby has now become my passion. Without question, I would recommend this training facility to everyone! You will learn things about your physical and mental capabilities you never thought was possible!
