  • NOT JUST A GYM, A FAMILY !!!
    When I joined Southside Muay Thai, the most notable quality that this gym possesses that others do not, is that they are not just a professional martial arts gym but also a family based business. At Southside, they treat each and every client with the same kind, caring, honest and accepting attitude. Kar & Barry give 100% to their clients every single session. During training, they take time to assess who may need extra help in the room. They cater to each individuals needs and help everyone improve at their own pace. They...

  • I have been made to feel so welcome by Kar & Barry & all the members. Lots of support & no judgement about skill level. I have had a severe injury for years and believe this is the place I will overcome it! So glad I bit the bullet & joined up! Thanks. Jay

  • Great gym to learn authentic Muay Thai technique from two of the best Coaches you could ask for!! I initially joined to loose some weight but found myself quickly becoming obsessed with the healthy lifestyle Muay Thai promotes as well as the mental and physical challenges it can offer you. I have since personally lost over 20Kgs in just over a year and I still look forward to every training!!

  • Best place to be! Choosing Southside is one of the best decisions I’ve made. Training at SSMT has helped me get in shape but most importantly has made me a stronger person mentally and emotionally and I will be forever grateful for that, and the people I’ve met in the process.

  • I have only been training at this club since November 2017 and it has been amazing. The coaches Barry Saunders and Kar Wong are the best coaches I have ever trained with, it is so very clear that they both have years of knowledge and experience as athletes, fighters, as teachers and trainers. The integrity and respect the coaches have for their students shows in their fighters. It is also pretty clear when you walk into the club and see the many trophies and belts both past a... nd present hanging up with pride that these guys know how train... read more

  • Best gym in Adealide for Muay Thai, self defence and fitness. Trainers are second to none and genuinely care about all their members at each and every stage of their training. Its a family gym, there is a a lot of respect here. I have personally benefited from all my training and can apply it in my job environment being in the Military as we train in combatives also. My overall fitness has soared too. Membership is very reasonable too for all that you can do in a week, as many classes as you like. Even in group classes you... read more

  • I have been training at Southside for about 8 months now (with some previous training experience) and have been impressed with the high standards of the coaching staff and the fighters in the gym. The coaches at Southside are passionate about Muay Thai and will accommodate your needs, whether you are an aspiring fighter or someone who wants to get fit and learn something new. I highly recommend Southside Muay Thai.

  • Southside Muay Thai provides the perfect training environment for those who have zero experience to those who are seasoned veterans. The friendly and helpful trainers give easy to follow instructions and never miss a thing with your technique. Being continually critiqued on your form helps you to learn quickly and enjoy it while you do. You're never out of your depth at Southside and would recommend it highly to all considering a physical challenge in a encouraging and friendly environment.

  • Active member for almost a year, SsMT is the highlight of my working week! The classes are always different, fun and challenging. It's a place I can forget about the outside world... challenge and better myself mentally & physically. I walk out feeling accomplished and 10 feet tall!! And a top endorphin buzz too 🙂 All the coaches are awesome in their own special way, great facilities and opening hours.

  • I have been training at Southside Muay Thai for 10 years and fighting for three years. In that time Baz & Kar gave assisted me in obtaining a South Australian State Title and a Silver Medal at the Muay Thai National Championships in the Gold Coast. Their experience, wealth of knowledge and support is next to none. I wouldn't train anywhere else simply for that matter. As fighters our best interests are always put first and forward, which is so important in this sport. The gym culture is fantastic, as fighters we help support our coaches with teaching new students,... read more

  • The staff are encouraging, friendly and supportive and the environment itself is great.

    I have personally lost over 15kgs since joining nine months ago and have completely fallen in love with the sport.

    If anyone is considering taking up Muay Thai or just wants a new way to get fit then I absolutely recommend Southside.
