Welcome to The Arena’s San Diego Muay Thai and Kickboxing program. We are the top Muay Thai / Kickboxing training gym in San Diego, offering the most weekly classes of any San Diego Muay Thai school.

We teach 3 main systems of Kickboxing and Muay Thai, focusing on both Competition as well Traditional Muay Thai geared towards self-defense. So whatever type of training you’re looking for, we have you covered.

Our first program is Dutch Style Kickboxing, which is definitely NOT Cardio Kickboxing. Instead, it includes Western Boxing, Japanese Kyokushin Karate and Muay Thai. Dutch Style Kickboxing is the primary Striking system in MMA.

Our second system is Competition Muay Thai, which includes hands, feet, elbows and knees. This program is segmented into Fundamentals classes, Technical classes and Sparring sessions, so everyone develops at the correct pace. This has allowed us to develop a very successful Kickboxing and Muay Thai team.

Our third system is Traditional Muay Thai taught by Boungnaphonh Makthepharaks, better known as Kru Mark. He is San Diego’s best known Muay Thai Coach and teaches his family‚Äôs style of Muay Thai, passed on from father to son for 5 generations in Asia. This is an excellent self-defense system.


Besides our weekly Muay Thai classes, membership at The Arena includes all 170 of our classes for under $100 a month. Please click below for more info on our other programs:
