Pure Muay Thai And Fitness Club
I started Pure Muay Thai in March 2018. I began training Muay Thai in 2005. Since then I spent multiple years at gyms in the Chicagoland area. I have learned from Thai boxing legends from all over the world including Saenchai, Gregory Choplin, Lerdsilla, Damien Trainor, and Attachai. I have competed at the amatuer level. I decided to start my own Thai boxing gym because I am passionate about the sport. I've trained in Thailand and wanted to have that style of training here. At Pure Muay Thai we teach traditional Thai Boxing. Find us on Facebook, IG, and online at puremuaythai.com.
