  • I've been training at SSMT for a few years now. I couldn't speak more highly of the trainers, members and facilities. Barry and Kar provide a safe and supportive place to pursue your goals - For me this extends beyond the sport and fitness into photography, public demos and a positive mindset.

  • 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.

  • 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 !

  • 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've been a member of the Southside family for more than 6 years now. I couldn't speak more highly of the coaches and facilities. Given that training at Southside has had such a positive impact on my physical health and wellbeing I would recommend to anyone to give it a try. However, as a school teacher I have to admit that learning martial arts is the FIRST thing I suggest to parents and families of children who are struggling within realms of education. Respect, concentration, confidence, assertiveness and self-regulation are just a few benefits your child will experience at Southside.... read more

  • 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 and present hanging up with pride that these guys know how train and... 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.

  • I've been training at Southside for over 5 years now and started fighting just over 2 year ago already racking up 13 fights.

    Southside is a genuine Muay Thai gym and is perfectly catered for beginners and families right through to professional fighters.

    I would highly recommend this gym to anyone looking to improve their fitness while learning the art of eight limbs.

    IT WILL IMPROVE YOUR LIFE!!!

  • 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

  • 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.

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. Relationships with family and friends become stronger, and we have more positive interactions with others within our local community. At work, home and school, productivity increases and absenteeism declines.
