WHAT YOU’LL LEARN AT JAI SUU

Explore our comprehensive selection of services that cater to a variety of needs, ensuring complete customer satisfaction.

01
stance & shape

muay thai is practiced with proper rhythm, stance, balance, and footwork. This is essential for mobility, defense, and setting up offensive moves.

02
pad work

you’ll likely engage in training with pads and bags to practice your strikes with a training partner. This helps improve accuracy, power, and timing.

03
technical sparring

we don’t beleive in aimless heavy sparring, prefering technical sparring, emphasising precise techniques, timing, and strategic execution. This type of sparring helps refine skills and prepares students for high-level competition.

04
clinch work

The clinch is a unique aspect of Muay Thai that involves close-quarters fighting, using the clinch to control your opponent, deliver knee strikes, and set up throws.

05
defence

Blocking, parrying, and evading are crucial aspects of Muay Thai. You’ll learn how to defend against various strikes and counterattacks.

06
conditioning

Expect to engage in physical conditioning drills to build strength, endurance, and flexibility. Muay Thai training can be physically demanding, so conditioning is an important aspect.

what does muay thai mean to you?

“Muay Thai has introduced me to so many people over the years. I have seen it’s positive influence on both myself & students, not to mention the vast benefits to be gained from mental & physical health.

i would encourage anyone to take their first step into muay thai, whether for fun alone or to compete, it has something to offer everyone.”

who is your favorite fighter?

“Chatchai paiseetong”

ian

who is your favorite fighter & why?

“CHAMUEKPET HAPALANG.
EARLY IN HIS CAREER HE WAS A PRESURE FIGHTER WHO WAS AMAZING WITH HIS KNEES, WHICH ANYONE WILL TELL YOU IS MY FAVORITE STYLE.
BUT THE REASON HE’S MY PERSONAL FAVORITE IS THAT LATER IN HIS CAREER HE ADAPTED AND FOUGHT AS A FEMUR, EXTENDING HIS CAREER. ALL IN ALL A VERY INTELLIGENT NAK MUAY.”

what does muay thai mean to you?
“MUAY THAI TO ME MEANS FAMILY.MUAY THAI BRINGS PEOPLE TOGETHER & CREATES REAL FRIENDSHIPS THAT WILL LAST A LIFETIME. SURROUNDING YOURSELF WITH LIKEMINDED PEOPLE WHO SHARE A PASSION FOR SELF-IMPROVEMENT IN THE GYM”

who is your favorite fighter & why?
“PHOOO.. NOT SURE WHERE TO BEGIN.
Modern day – Superlek. That right leg of his is a cannon. Oley Kiatoneway from the golden era. His footwork and evasive movement was beautiful to watch. However, Karuhat Sor Supawan (also from the golden era) edges it for me. A true Muay Femur genius who would just blend it all together, like poetry in motion.

From the perspective of someone who has some fight experience and still does a fair amount of fitness I can say that Jai Suu Muay Thai is an extremely welcoming and respectful environment. Calvin, Ian and Tom are all knowledgeable, experienced and very patient coaches. It's a very positive and uplifting environment and I believe that all levels and ages could comfortably train here providing you bring the usual to any combat gym. Hard work and attitude.

Highly recommend. I moved over to train here after a change in personal circumstances and the trainers made me feel welcome immediately. They are all very knowledgeable and know their craft well. Students all help each other regardless of level of experience. Train to fight or just to keep fit; it’s all good.
