​Here are some answers to some or the questions you might have:

Why do Muay Thai?

Muay Thai is an excellent way of getting in to shape. It also boosts your confidence and is widely seen as the best martial art.

How do I join?

There is no joining fee. The cost is currently £30 per month and for that you also have access to the the gym facilities.

What do I wear?

You need to wear something comfortable. Shorts and a T-shirt is most people’s choice.

What about equipment?

You can borrow equipment at the gym. If you decide that Muay Thai is something you really want to do then you are advised to buy a gumshield and a groin guard (gents only). You can get a gum-shield in most sports shop or we can supply them to you. It would probably also be advisable to buy some gloves since there is a limited amount of them at the gym. We use 14oz for training at Nak Soo.

Do I have to train every session?

You can come to whatever class fits your schedule and remember, you only pay-as-you-go.

Do I have to fight if I train with Nak Soo Muay Thai?

You don’t have to fight if you don’t want to. It’s completely up to you, fighting is hard mentally and physically so we will get you 100% ready. Interclubs are a good way to test yourself first.

Do I need a Licence?

Not straight away, but if you decide that Muay Thai is for you we would ask you after a period of time to get a licence through us. We are a fully licensed club under the United Kingdom Muaythai Federation (UKMF) as are all our Instructors, experienced students and fighters. Accidents can happen in any contact sport and the UKMF licence also gives you insurance cover…just in case. You may decide one day you would like to fight or just do an interclub so a licence will be necessary, most Muay Thai clubs and organisations in the UK are UKMF affiliated.
