"I really like the instructor, Coach Nick. He moves at a really nice pace, explains things well, and is really pleasant to hear in class. I really like the organization of the levels, it makes sense is logical, and having the download for each curriculum and level is terrific. The videos are all good, fun to watch, and while not the most intense workouts, give a really nicely paced lesson plan that is very well executed."

course, not only will you learn every single defense, strike, and principle, but you will reach new levels of

physical fitness, control, and energy.

Introduction

Strikes

Devastating but simple strikes to end a fight quickly: straight punches, hook punches, uppercuts, overhands, elbow strikes, and more.

Kicks

The crushing cornerstone of Muay Thai - the thai kick, round kick, front kicks, back kicks, spinning kicks, knee, jump knee, and more.

Defenses

Work fast and highly efficient footwork and defenses that

flow with your

body's natural range of movement to mitigate any attack. Along with sparring practice.

are Saying

Commonly Asked Questions

Please feel free to reach out to us if you don't see your question below!

How does testing work?

  1. Train with the lessons and classes. Once you have logged the minimum training hours required, you are eligible to submit your test.
  2. Next, simply follow the instructions on the testing page, to film and submit your video exam.
  3. Your instructor will do a detailed grading of your exam, and will also film a personalized feedback video with corrections and guidance.
  4. Once you pass, you will receive your official certificate of rank. If you do not pass the first time, you will be given corrections, and can resubmit without paying another fee.

Do I need a partner to participate in the GMAU Muay Thai program?

Although it is not a complete necessity, it can be very beneficial to have a training partner. The techniques can be practiced solo (preferably with a mirror). In the rank exam video, the kumite can be demonstrated solo or with a partner. If a partner is not available for self defense and one step demonstrations, a hanging bag or realistic dummy can be useful. You will need a partner in the kumite section of the brown belt – black belt rank exams, this can be a friend, training partner, or family member.

Do you offer a discount for additional family members?

Yes! Each additional family member receives a 50% discount on their tuition. It is simple to add new family members from your own account.

Can I cancel at anytime?

Yes, there are no contracts or annoying cancellation processes. If you just don’t like the course, you can cancel. But, if you fall to hard times and want to freeze your membership, we can do that for you too.

Does a portion of my monthly tuition go toward changing the world for the better?

Yes it does! We donate a good portion of our proceeds every month to people and projects that are making the world a better place. From planting organic gardens to feed the homeless, to a martial arts school teaching underprivileged kids, to good people who have fallen under hard times and illnesses, schools in Africa, people combating ailments with natural herbs, and more - we are working on helping others and spreading abundance.

Will I get access to the full course on day 1?

Yes. Upon enrolling, from day one you can access all levels of lessons, classes, and extras. You are not required to do the grading/testing component of your membership; but it is an option that you can take advantage of at any time!

Can I enroll my child into the course? What is the minimum age?

Yes it does! We donate a good portion of our proceeds every month to people and projects that are making the world a better place. From planting organic gardens to feed the homeless, to a martial arts school teaching underprivileged kids, to good people who have fallen under hard times and illnesses, schools in Africa, people combating ailments with natural herbs, and more - we are working on helping others and spreading abundance.
