For more than seven years, Jacksonville Muay Thai has been so much more than a physical gym or martial arts school. We are a family. We pride ourselves on cultivating an authentic martial arts culture. And we bring life-changing health improvements to our members. But first and foremost, we support each other through every celebration and every challenge. New members of all ages and backgrounds quickly find a home upon joining, regardless of experience level. We invite you to become a part of our family today, because each individual member uplifts the entire JMT Tribe.
Hands down - Best striking gym in Jax. My only regret is living 45 rush hour minutes away in Riverside. Please open a sister location here!
I can't say enough about this gym! The whole family has been going for over a year and it has been awesome. We have kids ages 4, 7, & 15. The younger ones attend the kids classes and our 15 yr old daughter trains with us. Both Kru Giles & Brandon are great teachers and everyone is made to feel welcome.
Good variety of classes, experienced instructors, great people and awesome vibe. Love it there!
Great place to get kids of all ages involved in martial arts! The gym is large. The teachers are masters at keeping the kids engaged. The staff is friendly and there is a positive culture there. With social distancing there is plenty of room on the lobby to see the class and keep distance from other parents.
