I love the physical and mental challenge of Muay Thai-- it keeps me working hard long after I'd have given up on more traditional workouts. Over the last year, I've become devoted to Old School Muay Thai. It's fun, unfussy, and the energy I get from everyone else in class keeps me going! The instructors know their stuff, and gym owner Kru James makes a point of getting to know everyone. I feel like I'm paying for everything I want-- a gym community with great instruction and all the equipment I need-- without paying for the frills other gyms pad out their experience with. If you want a simple, challenging workout within a group of like-minded people, go Old School!

Old school Muay Thai has changed my life. I let myself get into a routine of unhealthy habits for a couple of years and my physical and mental health suffered.  I spoke with Kru James often and he always pushed me to get back into the gym and I finally went.....best decision of my life.  I’ve lost over 20lbs in just over 2 months and I’m feeling great!  Old school Muay Thai has helped me in many aspects of my life, I am forever grateful!

I started coming to OSMT as a young misfit and the dedication, support and love for the sport and the students that Kru James showed inspired me to improve myself not only physically but in all ways as a human being, and to inspire others to do so as well.
