  • 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.

  • 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 decided to check out SouthSide Muay Thai because of good feedback I found online. Once I started training here I found the coaches extremely down to earth and the whole gym environment super friendly. There are no members with big egos and I felt extremely welcomed. After training for a while I decided that I wanted to progress and compete in the sport. Even though I was new to the sport I had great support from the fight team members and from the coaches. if you are interested in joining a gym I recommend checking out SSMT, as a... 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 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

  • 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.

  • Southside is a place with an amazing community and super friendly staff. In the 8 months I've been at southside I have made multiple new friends and really fallen in love with Muay thai.
    The intense training and super helpful trainers have also helped me to lose nearly 30kgs in a short period of time and totally changed my work ethic and outlook towards fitness!

  • 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.

  • Would 100 percent recommend Southside Muay Thai. I was a beginner and I have learnt so much within the past 4 months I have been there. The coaches are wonderful and professional and the atmosphere has been amazing and vibrant. I enjoy coming to Southside and get excited every time I book in a class!
    If you’re looking to get in real good shape and learn a martial art from the best, differently would choose Southside

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.
