The People’s Muay Thai

At 8 Limbs, we have created a class that's geared towards the folks of the LGBTQAI community because we want a space for anyone to come and learn Muay Thai. Behold :  The People's Muay Thai. The People's Muay Thai is offered once a week and is the only pay-per-class program at our school.  Class is one hour long & cost $10 (CASH ONLY).  Bring an open mind & a water bottle!  We will supply all the gear.


“It’s not like I’ve ever come across a gym that was overly racist, homophobic, transphobic or so packed full of meat heads that it would be impossible for someone from the LGBTQ community to train… I just never came across a place that is inviting to those folks.

SO… I’m happy to say that since I own my own gym, I want to hold a class that does just that.

The People’s Muay Thai is a class that invites anyone, regardless of sexual or gender identification, held in a judgment free zone. This isn’t a class to marginalize, it’s a class to introduce. I want to create a space where everyone feels comfortable so you could discover and learn Muay Thai without feeling like they have to put up with bro-y bullshit. After you get your foundation in the People’s Muay Thai, you are encouraged to jump in with the rest of our student base. You are going to work hard, get sweaty, punch/kick stuff, feel powerful and learn the beautiful art of 8 limbs.”

 ~ Coach Charlie

Note: Yes, this class has a drop-in of $10 cash BUT that doesn’t mean it should be taken advantage of.  It is intended to be used as a stepping stone into our Muay Thai program for folks who are genuinely interested in training with us. We want to help those that want to give martial arts a try that may not otherwise give it a chance.
