Our goal at Nak Muay Gym, located in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, is to help you to achieve your goals! Whether it is to tone and sculpt your body and be in the best shape of your life, or to learn many varieties of proven and effective martial arts systems. We have a program that is designed for every individual, such as Muay Thai, Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) and Kickboxing.
At Nak Muay Gym, our specialty is working with beginners. The first step is to call or stop by. Then you will be asked to come in and try an introductory class. In your first couple of classes you’ll learn basic footwork and how to move properly. We’ll also show you how to wrap your hands and how to punch properly so you don’t hurt yourself. We’ll go over some basic punches and kicks, and put a few combinations together. You will learn how to use the heavy bag, as well as the focus mitts. If you desire even more special attention, we also offer private one on one sessions.
