The Old School Way
Come and learn from a school that has supported this sport for years before it was hip and cool to do so! Old School Muay Thai is one of the original gyms in Toronto, founded by Kru James Hines, the first student of Canada’s Thai champion, the respected father of this Thai tradition, Ajahn Suchart. Beginners are welcomed into a friendly environment, while experienced Muay Thai students will have access to skilled instructors. Our members have the added benefit of knowing their fees support our community youth-at-risk program.
What to Expect
Each of our classes is a complete fitness regime! The first half of class is an aerobic warm-up including stretching, skipping and ‘old school’ conditioning with push-ups and squats, plus a focus on core training. The second half of the workout consists of learning and practicing traditional Muay Thai techniques on heavy bags, Thai pads and punching stands, as well as shadow-boxing. As any of our students can attest, the therapeutic benefits of punching and kicking out a day’s frustration are noticeable!
"OSMT has knowledgeable and passionate instructors who truly care about powerful and beautiful Muay Thai. The community of students is very diverse, welcoming, and tight knit which really helps keep you motivated! The vibe is very positive and will push you to improve your level of fitness and technical ability, regardless of your experience!"

Come ready to sweat in athletic shorts and shirt. Bring a bottle of water. If you have these items on hand — a skipping rope, hand wraps and bag gloves — it is helpful. If you don’t, we’ll share!
