Knockout Muay Thai Training Centre  


"My husband and I have been with Knockout from the beginning.
We joined because we wanted to do something that would give us a great workout, keep us in shape, and be something we could do together as a couple , and share something fun together.
Knockout has provided all that and more. The workouts keep us very fit,and are always fun, you are always improving and learning new techniques, and we definitely have a lot of fun. The team at Knockout have found a great balance between the traditional martial arts respect , and a fun , warm and welcoming atmosphere, that makes anyone feel welcome and comfortable right away, whether it is your 1st or100th time there. The students are a great group of people, and we all share a strong feeling of support and team spirit.
Knockout has ended up being such a huge , positive part of our lives , and has not only enriched our lives, but us, as a couple. I can't imagine not having it in our life."

"Knockout Martial Arts found me in April 2013 at a time when I was searching for something. I was notsure what I was searching for, but knew I would recognize it when I found it. I have struggled with myweight for a large part of my life and I could not seem to find the strength to conquer my battle. Always feeling like I was never enough, like there was something wrong with me. Knockout Martial Arts offered a corporate fit challenge to the company I worked for. A six week program designed as an introduction to Muay Thai. I signed up almost on a dare. I did not think it would be something that I would stick with but I thought I would give it a try.

From the moment I walked in the front door, I felt like I belonged. The entire staff and students alike were so welcoming. I never once felt judged or as though I didn't belong. No one seemed to notice thatI was extremely overweight. No one made excuses for me or allowed me to give less than I was capable of. They were always cheering for me. They had so much faith in my ability that I could not help buut believe what they seemed to see in me. Even if I was not sure I could see it in myself. I was accomplishing so much more than I ever thought I could. Pushing myself way beyond what I had imagined my limitations were. The Knockout family are so supportive and caring, they give me the belief that I can do anything I set my mind to.

Almost two years later, with the help of Knockout Martial Arts I have lost 62 lbs and have found my path. I still have a long journey ahead but I know that I can do it. They have taught me so much more than Muay Thai. I have gained self esteem and a belief in myself I never dreamed possible. I have developed some of the best friendships and found a place that I feel safe. The best part of my day is when I walk through those front doors. I found what I was searching for."

"Joining Team Knockout has been one of the most challenging, rewarding, and fun things I've probably ever done (OK, having kids might come first but you know what I mean :) ). Coming in as a 'mature' student (I started at 47-years old, I think), I was pretty intimidated to step into such a demanding and intensely physical environment but every time I walk in the door I feel supported by every level of student and instructor and I most definitely learn something new as well. Yes, I learn punches, kicks, and blocks but more importantly, I learn about myself- my strengths and weaknesses and what I will learn to accept or learn to change. It's not always easy but I couldn't imagine a more fun and supportive team have in my corner. I love my Knockout Family!"

"I'm a military member and have been a part of the Knock Out experience for going on 3 months now and have to say that this gym, thanks to its tremendous level of instruction and the fact that the team and members are some of the friendliest and welcoming people I've met in the valley, is rapidly becoming my inner sanctum. Knock Out has a way of taking all the stress and problems of the day and melting them away with every push-up, burpee and incredibly satisfying "Thwack!" of the pads when you land that hook! I'd go every day if my body could handle the punishment."


"We have a lot of amazing women at Knockout! Instructor Shelley Strachan is a great role model for girls and women who want to be strong, confident, and learn a martial art. I joined team Knockout in 2013 and have since enrolled my 5-year old daughter and 6-year-old son. I have competed in my first tournament, achieved my blue belt, and am in the best shape of my life. I am surrounded by many amazing female athletes and women who I take inspiration from every day. Knockout is a welcoming, respectful environment where we support each other to be the best we can be. Join us!"

"I would not have challenged myself with all the new things I have if it had not been for Muay Thai and the support of the Knockout family! Both my kids have benefitted by gaining self-confidence, self control & integrity"
