Established in 1990, Muay Thai Academy International (MTAI) maintains the reputation as one of the oldest Muay Thai schools in the United States, if not the oldest.
We offer unique and extremely effective street defense tactics combined with offensive combat techniques for civilians.
Please note that we do not profess a focus on sport or tournament-centric martial arts.

Our Program

Students of the Academy are instructed in two training methodologies:
Old Style / Military Style Muay Thai and Close Quarter Combat Tactics
Both styles emphasize self-defense tactics against multiple opponents and are best suited for individuals seeking or requiring such training for practical application.
Advanced levels of instruction can be provided to members of law enforcement, military, and high-risk operators on a case-by-case basis. These exclusive contracts are arranged by the Schola Training Group with various government agencies and administered by our specialized instructor cadre.
Admission to our academy is limited to individuals over the age of 18.

Old Style Muay Thai

Our instruction embodies a system based on the old style of Muay Thai known as Muay Chao Chur and the military style of Muay Thai known as Ledrit. Training also includes elements of Boar Bando and Kalaripayat, a Burmese and Indian combat style.
We also offer a state approved and licensed Close Quarter Combat Tactics program and a Muay Thai Instructor’s training program. Membership with our academy will include all these components and will be ongoing. 

Training & Fees

Develop At Your Own Pace

The Academy does not have any set classes. Instead, instructors are scheduled to cover the floor for our operating hours. All students have unlimited access to the facility during that time.

Other than a one time enrollment fee, expect to pay a monthly rate. This rate will vary depending on a 6-month or 12-month commitment. We do not offer month-to-month plans at this time. There are no hidden fees with us.
