Q: Do I need to start with a beginners class?

A: Yes. The beginners sequence teaches you the fundamentals of Muay Thai, such as proper technique and basic conditioning. Once you have completed the class, you will be prepared to take the All Level classes. 3-week Beginner Class cost: $120 (includes wraps, 1 weeks of free classes and discount on class package after completion).   Class meets every Monday and Wednesday for 3 weeks.   The Mind Body system we use will close out the class when it is full.  Please do not come as a walk-in because we do not want this class to be too big.  Thank you.  Note that this tuition is non-refundable and  can not be transferred to another student.

Q: What sort of clothing do I wear, and what sort of equipment do I need?

A: Any type of workout clothes that are comfortable for you, and allow for you to be flexible and have full range of motion. In terms of equipment, you will need hand wraps and gloves. Shin pads are optional. SNMT gloves and shin pads my be used in each class, or you can purchase your own. If you would like to purchase your own equipment, please place your order with Kru Hope.

SNMT does not mark up price of the equipment. Prices reflect retail pricing, plus a small charge for shipping.

Q: I haven’t worked out in a long time, and feel out of shape. Will I be able to learn Muay Thai?

Q: Why does everyone bow when they enter/exit the gym?

A: This is called “Wai” and it is a customary greeting that shows respect for your instructor when your arrive, as well as a way to honor and thank your teacher for the gift of instruction. It is also a way to honor and show respect for the gym where you study your craft.

You may pay for classes individually, or in bulk, and you may do so via personal check, cash, Visa or Master Card. Just write your personal information on the envelope, put your money inside, and leave the envelope in the lock box inside the gym.

Q: How do I test for my Shorts?

A: Short Testing for Level 1 is a commitment of desire to learn Muay Thai. You must have at least 6 months of training to even be considered. There are a limited number of spots for testers according to your commitment and dedication. Testing for your shorts entails not only technique and stamina but it also includes your understanding of Muay Thai.  Students who have tested for their shorts have a desire to move forward with their learning.  If you are interested in testing you must communicate your intention to Kru.
