Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Can I try a free class?
A. Yes, we encourage you to do so! We want to make sure you like it here before joining.
Q. Do I need experience?
A. No, you do not. Many of our students have not had previous training in Muay Thai before attending a class.
Q. What do I need to get started?
A. For your first class, we have you covered. We will provide you with gloves, hand wraps, and shin pads. The only thing we ask you to bring is water and an open mind to learn; let us do the rest. However, like any other hobby that you do, you will want to purchase your own equipment once you sign up. To make this easy for you we have equipment available for you to purchase.
Q: How much does it cost?
A: Your intro lessons are FREE! For memberships, our dues are very reasonable when you consider the extraordinary credentials of our teaching staff and the overall experience here at Florida Muay Thai. Stop in to watch a class and discuss specific rates for your training. Our long-time members tell us that the confidence, calmness, and success skills they've learned while training are priceless! You can view our current fee schedule on our Fees page.
Q: In general, what is a fair monthly rate for martial arts training?
A: It depends on what the school offers. Martial arts schools in the US may charge anywhere between $84-$445 per month, and each school should offer benefits that justify that price. We've compared legitimate martial arts programs around the country, and found that a fair price for a month of training at FLMT- taking into account the convenient classes, the expert instruction, and other benefits - is $179 per month. If you visit another school with a higher dues rate, ask what justifies the price.
When you are ready, go to our Contact Us page for specific information on how to sign up.
Q: Do you have a nutritionist or someone to help plan my training schedule and diet?
A. Yes, we provide you with a meal plan that’s tailored to fit your lifestyle and assist you in achieving your desired results. Please, don’t be fooled though, this is not "7 Minutes to Washboard Abs". You will have to follow the meal plan and train consistently to get the results that you want.
Q: Is there a chance I will get hurt while practicing martial arts?
A: There is a SMALL chance of injury in all martial arts. The most common injuries are small bruises from a hard grab or the kinds of aches and pains you'd get from any good workout. At Florida Muay Thai we make every effort to keep you as safe as possible. We teach structured classes, warming up first, and start with less strenuous techniques before going on to more challenging ones. We emphasize cooperative practice, since everybody is trying to learn and improve themselves.
Q: Why should I choose Florida Muay Thai over another MMA or Martial arts school?
A: In a few words: because we are dedicated to being experts in our field and value extraordinary character. Our instructors are highly trained and motivated to help you learn.
We work hard at helping you achieve your goals, to help you be the best that you can be. We don’t expect you to be a fighter in the ring, but we do expect you to be a fighter in your life. You will not just be joining a gym, but a family. If you want to belong to a family that preserves these values, then you are making the right choice. We will inspire you, cry together, sweat together, laugh together, and help lift each other up.
