Groom the next generation of Thai fighters for world-class competition by equipping them with the appropriate skills, discipline, and mindset to excel at a professional level
Provide health benefits to the general public through basic Muay Thai training
Preserve and promote the art of Muay Thai and its unique culture to the world
Teach an exclusive system of Muay Thai based on ancient techniques unlike anywhere else in the world
