Jai Thai Boxing Gym is a modern, clean and fully equipped Muay Thai training centre.

We have two branches in the heart of Wellington and Auckland.

The art of Thai Boxing or Muay Thai is a fun way to keep fit while also learning some serious self-defence skills. At Jai Thai Boxing gym we specialise in cardio-focused, non-aggressive workouts that burn up to 800 calories per hour. Our challenging routines involve pad work, punching, kicking bags and shadow boxing. This method of training allows students to get the full physical and mental benefits of Thai Boxing without the need for fighting. We teach Thai Boxing movements as a means of developing core strength while toning your muscles and honing your reflexes. There’s no pressure to fight or spar, although you’ll gain skills which can be used in self-defence or competitive situations. So whether you are a beginner looking for a fun way to stay fit or an aspiring K-1 champ, our experienced Thai and local trainers can help you reach your goals.
