Muay Thai Kickboxing is an ancient combat sport from Thailand that uses stand-up striking along with various clinching/ grappling techniques. Muay Thai is referred to as the “Art of Eight Limbs” because it makes use of punches, kicks, elbows and knee strikes.

In recent years, Muay Thai is very commonly known as the stand-up training behind many of todays best UFC and MMA fighters.

Muay Thai is an entire body workout, and with practice develops balance, core strength, cardio fitness and overall health.

This curriculum has been tried and tested by some of the largest Muay Thai schools in the world, and continues to grow and develop as the sport evolves.

Double Dose Muay Thai was brought to Australia by a husband & wife team in honour of their coach, mentor and friend, Ajarn Bryan ‘Double Dose’ Dobler (Double Dose Muay Thai USA). Along with their very active 4 year old boy, Double Dose Australia has been developed as an environment suitable for families of all ages and walks of life. We have many members that are families of 3 to 5, who are all able to enjoy Muay Thai together!

While an old-school boxing gym is cool in the Rocky films, the owners of DDMT understand that martial arts of any kind can be very intimidating for a beginner. So they have worked hard to develop a culture within the gym that is welcoming, and encouraging for all. If you are looking for a new challenge, and would like to work with enthusiastic, kind and hard working team mates, then Double Dose Australia may be the right fit for you. We understand that is it not for everyone, and therefore are able to offer a Free trial at our location in Ormeau.
