My Story

Hello my name is Ardeshir Shafie.

I’m originally from Tehran, Iran and moved to America when I was 5. I’m 24 now and growing up I always loved sports and was a very active kid. I mostly played soccer and basketball until my freshman year of college, that was when I first stepped in a Muay Thai gym… I quickly fell in love with the sport and it slowly took over my life. I was training everyday, twice a day. I just wanted to learn and get better as a fighter, I was in the gym 24/7 perfecting my craft. I took my first fight 6 months into training and I won by 2nd round TKO! From that point on I knew what I wanted to do with my life. The passion and love I have for Muay Thai changed my life for the better. Now fast forward 5 years later I am a multiple time Muay Thai champion and full time coach and personal trainer. I have fought all over the world and all over the United States and have some major championship belts. I also recently graduated UCF with a degree in sports and exercise science. Muay Thai is my passion, come take a class at Florida Muay Thai and see for yourself!
