  • The best place to train and grow as a person under the careful instruction of Kar Wong and Baz Saunders!
    I have been training @SSMT for over six months and know there are no limitations!
    Kar has personally helped me balance well and spar with confidence after loosing my left leg to cancer 23 years ago!
    His attention to help me achieve my goals is second to none!
    Can't wait to see where this journey may takes me!

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • I first started my training with Southside Muay Thai well over a year ago and have never looked back since! I've been grateful enough to have trained at a number of different Dojo's, Clubs & Martial Arts groups in my years...
    But I have definitely found my home @ Southside Muay Thai
    among friends and great Coaches in a professional yet friendly family orientated environment. Along with great gym facilities and traditional

  • SSMT is by far the best gym I've trained at. Coach Kar and Coach Barry are both great blokes and have an amazing knowledge of Muay Thai. The people that train there are so humble, always willing to help and all round great people. I wouldn't dream of training under anybody else and this place is becoming my second home.

  • 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.

  • Have only been training at SSMT for 8 months and could not rate any higher. The environment, trainers and atmosphere is like nothing I have been involved in and I was addicted instantly. Would highly recommend to any and all types of people, whatever your goals !

  • 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...

  • 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 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.

DISCOVER HOW YOU CAN BENEFIT FROM MUAY THAI TRAINING

Muay Thai is a martial art that can be practiced for self-defence, fitness and as a sport. Apart from the obvious health benefits, individuals experience positive growth within many aspects of their personal life.

After training for a short period of time, improved fitness levels prompt physical changes to the body, increasing confidence. As confidence builds, so to does the way we look at ourselves and the way we interact with others.

At work, home and school, productivity increases and absenteeism declines.
