Short North Muay Thai is rooted in the old school style of Muay Thai or Thai Boxing. It is a learning center that facilitates the true art of Muay Thai through physical, mental and spiritual conditioning. We stand by the old school ethics: to respect others, show humbleness, be gracious, kind, and cool-hearted. Through Muay Thai, we focus on building confidence, self-respect, harmony and awareness to the world around us. Our classes are structured to push each individual to higher mental and physical levels in a positive and supportive environment so that we are better, happier, healthier people and may enjoy life to the fullest.
Short North Muay Thai was established by Kru Hope in 2005 in the back of her garage. Kru never planned to start a gym. After returning from competing in the World Championship in Thailand, several friends asked her to learn some Muay Thai basics. What started as casual Muay Thai lessons in her Short North garage quickly turned into a martial arts training center. The gym moved to its current Grandview location in 2008 and continues to welcome new students to study with Kru Hope.
