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 training here since they opened. Kru Saji and Kru Ritch are great coaches who will help push you past your limits to achieve your fitness or fighting goals. Their students have been transformed into elite athletes who also help train new students with the same intensity and determination.

This place is great for anyone of all levels from beginner to experienced fighters. Give this place a chance I guarantee that you will not regret it.
I didn't make it through my first fitness class at P4P. Out of shape, asthmatic, and generally ill, I was the worst case scenario for a trainer. Fast forward and not only do I make it through my sessions, but I haven't used my inhaler in weeks. I feel better, stronger, and sleep better! Even in a "group" setting, P4P makes me feel like I have my own personal trainer. They tailor the workout to my abilities, but still push me beyond what I thought I could do. My class is at 6:30am, a time when most people are just waking up; however the motivation to get out of bed comes from knowing that I'm heading to session that is worth waking up for. Now I can't imagine NOT waking up for my class.
A terrific gym for fitness and muay thai and jiujitsu instruction. Martial arts at it's best.
