Muay Thai Muppets are Dubai's leading provider of Muay Thai coaching to all levels of ability, beginner to advanced, providing both group and one-on-one Muay Thai and Kickboxing coaching exclusively at GymNation.

Muay Thai is the “Art of Eight Limbs” because it makes use of punches, kicks, elbows and knee strikes, thus using eight “points of contact”, as opposed to “two points” (fists) in boxing and “four points” (hands and feet) used in other more regulated martial arts sports, such as kickboxing, boxing, and savate.

What is sparring and will I have to spar?

Sparring is often a light to medium contact exercise in a controlled environment which allows fighters to practice the techniques they have learnt in a competitive environment. Specific tactics and strategies can be trained with sparring including in close fighting, clinching and kneeing only, cutting off the ring, or using reach and distance to keep an aggressive fighter away. Sparring is a great way to put into practice everything you have learnt and is the natural progression prior to actually competing for real....Not to mention a great way to burn away any unwanted stress!

Testimonials on Muay Thai Muppets

Kate Horsefield

Jason has taught me the literal meaning of go hard or go home!! He is a fantastic teacher and coach with a unique style. He will push you when you're being lazy, explain things when you don't understand and motivate you when you need motivating. I always feel privileged to train with Jason because he is one of the very best trainers in Dubai and as a total beginner to Muay Thai with no experience in any martial arts I can't believe the progress that I have made in 7 months. 

Lara Fawzy

I have been training with  with Jason and the Muay Thai Muppets for 7 months and Jasons’s programs has increased my knowledge and skills in Muay Thai dramatically. Jason brings  20 years of solid Thai  fighting experience to Dubai, he’s like no other trainer and encourages a strong team spirit, definitely recommend for overall fitness and real martial arts training.
