  • 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've been training at SSMT for many moons now and I love it for me it's not so much how much I've lost but what I have gained and that's friendships that will last a life time and a place where I can go and release the stresses of life by hitting the pads with people I respect and motivate me SSMT is more than fitness it's family

  • 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 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

  • Not just throwing this 5 star rating around willy nilly! Very much deserved 5 stars to Coach Barry and Coach Karr... if I could give them 6 stars I would. The atmosphere in this gym is addictive, the trainers, fighters and students are all very welcoming. The coaches and fighters set the bar high when it comes to technique and fitness. I miss this place so much!

  • 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...

  • Really enjoying training at the SSMT club with Barry and Kar and the team and learning some great new Muay Thai skills from the experienced trainers and getting fit at the same time. Very clean and organized club with a professional friendly team and a great timetable. Strongly recommend to anyone thinking about it to give the free trial a go.

  • I can't imagine a better place to get fit, learn a new sport and meet new friends! I have been training at Southside for almost 3 years now and have loved every minute of it! The trainers are warm, inviting and extremely encouraging - whether you are a seasoned fighter, an aspiring athlete or have a 9 year old looking to grow in confidence, Southside is the place to train!
    Classes 6 days a week at various times of day have also allowed me to fit training in with a demanding work schedule and really improve my life!
    Absolutely recommend 10/10 !
