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.
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.
Awesome gym hands down the best one around. The classes are amazing they keep you learning and push you to your limit. The facility is great there are areas for weight-lifting, boxing bags, a bjj room, & even a ring. The staff is very motivational & friendly they make you feel right at home. 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 have been training at Pound 4 Pound MMA, Pickering since 2015. During this period I have been impressed not only with the quality of the instruction from the trainers but also the friendly atmosphere. The staff and trainers not only took the time to get to know me but to also understand my motivation for training. I have utilized both classes and Personal Trainers for Muay Thai and have participated in the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes.
As a Veteran of the Canadian Armed Forces I have trained in several styles of Jiu-Jitsu in different parts of Ontario. Of all the Dojos I have been to P4P MMA is by far the best training club which I have experienced as there is no EGO and everyone pushes each other to do their best. At events the true comradeship is apparent as we support our fighters.
I have encourage anyone who is interested in training to try P4P MMA – I am sure you will be pleased with the outcome.
This is an incredible gym, a must try for people that want to get involved in MMA.
