We blend the best elements of Boxing, Kickboxing and Muay Thai for a complete striking program.



Kickboxing isn’t just a martial art to us – it’s our passion!  With several different, exciting and fun kickboxing programs for Cary residents from which to choose, we have something for just about everyone – from ages 6 and up and at any skill level. We’re just a 20-minute drive from Cary to experience the best Kickboxing and Muay Thai instruction in the area.

Our program combines Boxing, Kickboxing and Muay Thai martial arts, providing the ultimate set of skills for the striking arts.

You’ll learn the Art of Eight Limbs (fists, elbows, knees & shins).  We teach the Muay Thai stance and strikes and include American Kickboxing skills such as spinning back kicks, axe kicks and heel kicks.  We add traditional Boxing skills, including head movement, footwork, cutting angles etc.  This “Dutch-Style” approach combines aspects of each discipline to give students a well-rounded training program.


We believe in a “Team” approach to training.  Higher level students work with students new to the sport of Kickboxing and Muay Thai to raise the skill level of the entire team.  

Our multiple levels of Kickboxing provides every student with the same techniques our fight team utilizes, but at varying comfort levels.  No matter which program you participate in, you’ll learn authentic striking skills.

Cary, you can learn more about each program below and register for a free trial class to experience this awesome martial art.  

All you need for your first class is to wear comfortable clothing and have the desire to learn new skills.  We’ll provide the rest!
