Welcome to JAI Thai Boxing Gym, we are a martial arts training centre with locations in Wellington and Auckland city.

Thai Boxing (or Muay Thai as it is called in Thailand) is Thailand’s national sport. It’s a complete workout, using punches, elbows, kicks and knees, to burn 1,000 calories / hr!

At JAI, our trainers are all professional fighters, but you’ll never be pressured to spar or fight.

In fact, you can de-stress and get the full benefits without having to do any sparring.

All fitness levels and shapes are welcome. Train with friendly pros for a real Thai experience. Champs from Thailand. We hand-pick our team from professional training camps in Thailand selected not only for their incredible fight experience and wealth of training experience but also for their patience, humility and gentle natures. Because we believe that martial arts training should make you a better human being.

jai thai boxingWhether you wish to fight or simply get fit and learn some self-defence skills, you’ll be in good hands.

Our six Thai trainers have over 1,000 professional Muay Thai fights between them!

Meet our TRAINERS.

We aim to keep prices low and flexible, so we have casual classes as well as concession cards and memberships starting from just $20 / week.

We are open for morning, lunch and evening classes or personal training.

We welcome males and females from all walks of life. We have kids classes and approximately half of our students are female.
