Ambush Muay Thai in Austin, TX


We train a competition-style Muay Thai kickboxing program in Austin & San Antonio, TX. Muay Thai, or simply "Thai boxing", is a martial art that utilizes the punches and kicks of boxing and kickboxing, as well as strikes with knees and elbows in close-range clinch fighting. Here is what makes Ambush Muay Thai unique:

  • Martial Art. We practice Muay Thai as a martial art, first and foremost. You will get in great shape and lose weight, but this is not cardio kickboxing.

  • Community. Train as a team, not just a student in a class. Our culture is very welcoming, everyone supports each other and helps each other grow.

  • Structure. Advance in specific classes for technique, pad work, drills, & competition every week to ensure you work all important aspects of Muay Thai frequently.

  • Clinch. Work in dedicated clinch classes that concentrate entirely on close-range stand-up fighting, an Ambush specialty.

  • Sparring. Test your skills in our weekly sparring class, a live but controlled and cooperative environment to evaluate what is working and what needs more work.

  • Competition. We compete regularly in Muay Thai events and tournaments, both locally and nationally, and our program has produced numerous champions. Not everyone competes, but everyone trains like a competitor and contributes to our team's success.

  • MMA. We provide striking training for MMA and have trained MMA competitors in every major organization including UFC, Bellator, ONE FC, Strikeforce, and Legacy.
