Our programs

Dayton Muay Thai Classes

Adult Muay Thai Classes

Our adult Muay Thai classes are divided into three different skill levels. This approach allows our experienced Muay Thai teachers to give instructions specific to the skill level of the students, be they beginners class, intermediate, or advanced.

Kids Muay Thai Classes

Children training in Muay Thai Kickboxing not only learn about ways to protect themselves in different circumstances, but also develop the self-confidence that helps them to avoid being bullied. Participating in Muay Thai also provides a means for youth to improve the overall health and fitness degree. Children engage in a series of conditioning and strength exercises as components of their regular training.
