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.

A terrific gym for fitness and muay thai and jiujitsu instruction. Martial arts at it's best.
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 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.

The time I spent working with the P4P instructors was probably the most productive I've been during 15 years of passive training in different disciplines. Being one on one allowed me to ask questions that I never felt comfortable asking in group settings. This allowed my knowledge of boxing, conditioning, and nutrition to expand exponentially. I highly recommend P4P for anyone looking to begin, or improve they're fitness lifestyle. Above all else, how cool is it to say you've trained with a pro fighter?
