WELCOME TO MUAY U

We are Canbera’s home of Authentic Muay Thai. Whether you are an absolute beginner or aspiring world champion, we have the training for you. Every day we are helping people push their fitness levels, discover a newfound confidence in themselves or molding the next champion.

Muay Thai has changed our lives and we want it to change yours. Muay Thai is for everyone, regardless of age, gender, creed, origin, or religion. Whether your’re sick of the gym and want to stay fit or have dreams of one day stepping in the ring, Muay U is the place for you. 

NO DI***EAD POLICY

We get it – combat sports gyms can be intimidating. The crack of the pads, the grunting, the sweat. The group training at a lightning pace you could never imagine keeping up with. But guess what – they all started somewhere! Everyone who walks through our doors does so for a different reason – fitness, confidence, self-defense, to fight, and so no. Regardless of the purpose, we hold one rule above all – ‘NO DI***EADS*. Our members are a family and our gym is a refuge. Everyone working together to become the best version of themselves.
