Our gym is the oldest, Muay Thai-focused gym in Minnesota. Founded in 2001 by Kru (Thai for teacher) Mike under the name GPX Muay Thai. Although the location and the name have changed throughout the years, the focus on traditional Muay Thai techniques never changed.

WHAT SHOULD I LOOK FOR IN A GYM?
Every gym has its own vibe. Make sure that the gym's vibe aligns with your expectations. Because of our small membership base and low attrition, our gym is like a family.
WHEN WILL I GET TO FIGHT?
This depends on your beginning skill level. However, most people can expect to put in at least 1 year of consistent training.
WHAT IF I DON'T WANT TO FIGHT?
Most gyms will have a sizable non-fighting population and ours is no different. Sparring, while beneficial, is completely optional. Also, because of our lack of attrition, there aren't the "personalities" that come with the larger fighting gyms since we work with each other for years.
HOW DO I CHECK IT OUT?
Walk in when we are open and speak with Rick. Please print and sign the liability form before you come. Your first 30 minutes of instruction are free and you can stick around and hit the bag.
We will not win any awards for our space, however, our 800 square foot facility is sufficient with fully padded floors and several heavy bags for you to enjoy
Some of our members have been fighting for over 20 years and bring that experience to your training.
We have a dedicated gear storage and a changing room.
A westside native, Rick has been with Kru Mike for over 20 years at gyms (such as GPX Muay Thai gym and Top Team) as the top student. Rick is no stranger to the ring and has over 50 Muay Thai fights.
