MEMBER TESTIMONIALS

  • 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 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 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

  • I have trained in many gyms in many countries from Europe, USA, South America to the Asia Pacific region, and I am delighted to confirm:

    This gym rates among the best in the world! Their terms and conditions are clear and simple to understand and the owners work very hard to be flexible to work in with their client’s schedules....

    The training I have received during the past (almost) one year has been world class. I feel fitter & healthier than I have felt for some time. The programs offered are not just about training and techniques,... read more

  • 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.

  • 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 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!

  • 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.

  • 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.
