The origins of Muay Thai date back to 1700’s Thailand, when a soldier who was notorious for his fighting style was captured by the invading Burmese and offered a chance to fight for his freedom. The captured soldier won his freedom and his fighting style grew in popularity upon his return to Thailand (Siam). Muay Thai would eventually become Thailand’s sacred national sport.
In the 300+ years since the birth of Muay Thai, the Thais have pretty much perfected the martial art. And at Fit Plus, we are not trying to provide our own take on it, we are teaching the same techniques and style you would learn if you were training in Bangkok.

The Muay Thai training that you get at Fit Plus is authentic as it gets and it shows; Fit Plus boasts national and international Muay Thai champions.
