Khanomtom Muay Thai, located in Tampa, Florida’s North Hyde Park neighborhood, is now operating from 6,000 sq. ft right next door to the “Creative Loafing” newspaper building. For those who have been with us before, we’re in the same area, the same parking lot; but with this newer, bigger and brighter facility, we are proud to offer a more comfortable and exciting training environment to learn Muay Thai.
Khanomtom Muay Thai illustrates the most effective method of this internationally popular art with the research of the historical essence coupled with the modern application. Named after the historical icon, Nai Khanomtom, Khanomtom Muay Thai teaches not only authentic Muay Thai techniques and principles, but stays true to all the cultural ceremonies that are indigenous to it. Khanomtom Muay Thai is a combination of Muay Boran (ancient boxing) and modern ‘ring-style’ Thai boxing that has become very popular in the last decade, all over the world.
Khanomtom Muay Thai has strived to re-establish the ancient ways in a dynamic approach by finding the common denominator with modern ‘ring-style’ Thai boxing, making these historical techniques effective within modified application. Inspired by this historical icon, Khanomtom Muay Thai represents the art of Muay Thai in it’s purest form. Based upon the principles the art has been made up of, such as honor, respect, discipline and hard work, Khanomtom Muay Thai proves it’s authenticity.
All of the knowledge and consumption of skill of the instructors of Khanomtom Muay Thai comes right from the source and origin of this art. Each year, the Khanomtom Instructors and Fight Team take our annual Thailand Expedition. This is one month out of the year that we spend in some of the best Muay Thai Camps in Thailand, training with Champions, former and current.
