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 have been a client of P4P since January 2014. Since starting with P4P, I have gained strength and improved my posture, while also losing over 15 pounds and 4 inches around my waist. I have been very impressed with the P4P instructors passion to help their clients, their knowledge, and ability to connect. I have found them to be very attentive to my fitness needs, what my limits are, and how far they can push me. They encourage me and motivates me to do better, and yet they know how much I am capable of.
I brought my 12 year old son, Connor, to P4P to improve his fighting skills. I am very impressed with the P4P instructors. They give the training session their full attention and spend the session working on all aspects of the game. Connor's session with the P4P instructors not only involves strength training, conditioning and technique, but he receives many fighting tips that only a professional fighter could offer. The P4P instructors have a gift for working with kids and youth; they read the kids well, quickly determining their strengths and weaknesses. They don't coddle Connor but challenges him to put out the best effort possible. My son enjoys working with the P4P instructors and he has definitely grown in skill level, physical fitness, temperament and confidence. Whether you want better fitness or technique for you child, or even increased confidence and self-esteem, training with P4P is they way to go.
I have been sweating with P4P for almost two years. I do two 60 minute sessions per week, each one 30 minutes of strength and conditioning and 30 minutes of boxing. Working out with the P4P instructors has made me stronger, my cardio has gone way up and most importantly to me I have lost nearly 60lbs of fat. I reached my initial goal of 199lbs and I'm still losing more. The last time I was under 200lbs was 8-10 years ago! I truly enjoy my workouts with the P4P instructors no matter how hard they pushes me, and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to get in better shape.
My wife and I started training with P4P in September 2012. I am over 50 and was never serious on working out (actually, I never worked out). My wife tried different programs with various degrees of results. During our first discussions at P4P, They made us feel that we can start, and improve our physical fitness. For me, I did not want to feel intimidated by my lack of physical ability at a large fitness centre. When we work out at P4P we feel none of that intimidation because everyone that goes there has the same focus to be fit. From the very first time we met the P4P instructors, they always made us feel that one step at a time, our physical health would improve. And so it has. P4P has helped me strengthen specific areas (ie: lower back) that used to give me pain, and now that pain does not exist!! My wife an I are extremely happy with his help and expertise. We would highly recommend P4P to anyone interested in improving their physical health, no matter what age!!
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.
