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 for over a year now. Not only do I meet with the P4P instructors for one on one sessions I also take part of his weekly fitness classes. Since starting with P4P, I have lost over 60 pounds and and seen a significant increase in my strength and endurance. Every time I meet with the P4P instructors they challenge me to push myself harder and because of this I able to meet goals I never thought possible. I am lucky to be able to work with the P4P instructors and am truly grateful they are a part of my weight loss journey.
In my first month since joining P4P back on December 1st 2016, I have already lost 10lbs. The classes are awesome and have surpassed my expectations so far. The training staff are great, always providing feedback and areas of improvement. The overall gym atmosphere is positive where you feel welcome regardless of skill level.
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?
