What is Muay Thai?
Muay Thai sometimes referred to as Thai boxing, is a combat sport that uses stand-up striking along with various clinching techniques. Muay Thai is historically known as the “Art of 8 limbs” because it utilizes 8 points of contact: punches, elbows, knees, and kicks.
How do I find out the days and times for Muay Thai classes?
We are open seven days a week! You can always visit our website and click the Class Schedule tab to check daily, weekly and monthly classes. We highly advise you to check our online schedule periodically since we always add, edit, and implement new classes.
What size boxing gloves do I need to have for classes?
For the youth students, we suggest 8-ounce gloves. For teen students, 12 ounces or 14 ounces, depending on height and body build. For adults, we highly recommend 14 ounces (suitable for bag work and light sparring) or 16 ounces (heavier, great for sparring). We currently do not sell boxing gloves but carry hand wraps and mouthpieces for training. We suggest Amazon for your first set of boxing gloves and shin pads!
Note: For bag work or mitt work (adults), we suggest 12-ounce gloves to improve striking power and conditioning
Are there different levels for classes? Beginners, Advanced, etc.?

Note: All students are required to take Muay Thai Fundamentals.

I heard about Mission Muay Thai and want to learn more. Where can I find more information about your school/gym?
What are your rates and pricing structures? Do you have several options?
- Yes, we have several options to fit your needs! We offer month-to-month autopay (no annual or long-term contracts), 6-month paid in full (discounted programs), drop-in rates, and more. All of our pricing options are available in the Pricing tab or on the Mission Muay Thai app (download in your app store). We also have new membership promos for active military, law enforcement, first responders, educators, and college students! Give us a call and learn more about these special promotions.
I want to come in for a few classes and hit the heavy bags. Do you have separate per-class rates?
- Yes, drop-in rates for all students are $25/class, and we offer Open Gym during classes as long as there are no scheduled classes in the gym area. Check the class schedule and register for classes in advance on our website.
I have kids in their teens, and since your youth programs are for ages (5-12), does that mean they have to join the adults’ classes?
- No, not necessarily. The pricing structure is different once you complete the youth/teen programs and move into the adult classes; however, all kids/teens are evaluated on a case-by-case basis depending on size, maturity, and experience. Some teens can remain in the youth programs and some in the adult programs. Email us to learn more about the process: email@example.com
What are Mission 101 classes?
Mission 101 classes are conducted once a month (every first Friday). These are lecture-type classes where we discuss specific Muay Thai topics in a question-and-answer setting including Muay Thai history, culture, and tradition. Each month we focus on subjects that may include Thai scoring, rules and regulations, specific techniques, Mission level testing requirements, etc. This is a learning environment session, and we encourage all our students to sign up and attend to learn more about Muay Thai.
Can parents/guardians book their children with the Mindbody® app, my branded app, or branded web widgets?
From the parent’s/guardian’s login: No. At this time, the branded web widgets, the Mindbody® app, and branded app do not support the ability to book for another client.
From the child’s login: Yes, if the child is over age 13. If logged in as the child, provided the child is age 13 or older, the child can be booked for services. This will require the parent/guardian to log out of their own account and then log into the child’s account to book.
Does Mission offer other martial arts other than Muay Thai or Boxing classes/training?
- From a class perspective, no. We are an authentic Muay Thai school/gym. However, we offer private (one-on-one) sessions with “specific” coaches who do have a background in several arts, including MMA, Wrestling, Krav Maga, Jiu-jitsu, Filipino Martial Arts, Yoga, and more. We also host community Self-Defense Seminars for civilians, law enforcement, and military personnel – stay posted on our website and social media channels for these upcoming events!
What if I am a beginner and never had a martial arts/combat training background? Can I still train at Mission?
- Yes. Mission Muay Thai is a curriculum-based martial arts school that includes basic training classes for beginners and all levels. We strongly recommend taking our Fundamentals courses if you are a beginner!
I have heard about Muay Thai training and how intense cardio and conditioning can be. I want to lose weight, but I haven’t trained in the gym for a while – can I register and jump into any class?
- Yes, but take it SLOW (basic/advanced classes only). Our Muay Thai training is a technical and conditioning-based curriculum that takes time to learn. Every practitioner is different and has different goals, so take it easy and learn to relax and grow with the training.
