What is “KRU”?
“KRU” is literally translated from the Thai language as meaning “teacher”. KRU Muay Thai is therefore a teaching style. Not to be confused with “cardio kickboxing”, The origins of Muay Thai date back thousands of years to Siam now known today as Thailand.
“KRU” is also a homonym for “crew”, or defined as a group of single-minded people who share a common goal.
Therefore we like to think that we never train without our “KRU”, our teachers and peers. The KRU Muay Thai curriculum thus involves both components, and is completed by our will to learn, progress and grow.
What makes KRU Muay Thai Different?

What Will I Learn?

Level 1 - Emphasis is on Offensive Tool Development and Conditioning.
Level 2 - Defensive Strategy and the art of Holding Pads

Will I have to "Fight" in my class?
Muay Thai is known as the striking art of choice in such Combat Sports like the Ultimate Fighting Championships (UFC), Strikeforce, Bellator FC, Dream etc. It is a highly effective art that Siam (now Thailand) used to defend its country. In fact, KRU Muay Thai has a highly successful Competition Team that competes all over the country. However in KRU Muay Thai, the student enrolled is not forced into sparring (fighting) during curriculum group classes. Actually other than related to pad training and heavy bags, there is little to no contact, just hard training.
