Muay Thai Kickboxing

The ancient fighting art of Thailand and proud fighting heritage of the Thai people has transformed the art of the Siamese warriors into a spectacular and devastating ring sport. Thai boxers utilize the 8 Weapons; fists, elbows, knees and feet within kicking, boxing, elbow, knee and grappling ranges.

The Proactive MTK syllabus was developed by Rick O’Brien in 1992 after his 2nd trip to Thailand using modern coaching principles to develop a skill based learning method for his personal training clients. MTK incorporates a hybrid blend of traditional Muay Thai, Western Boxing, and Kickboxing.


One of the worlds oldest, and most celebrated sports, boxing, has proven to be popular among many people, for a variety of reasons. From its emergence in ancient Greece, through early 18 century England where it was considered the “gentle-mans” art of self defense (albeit a bare-knuckle form of defense). With the introduction of the Marquis of Queensbury rules (1866; scoring system that required gloves), boxing has continually been refined and perfected.

In the 21st century, professional boxing attracts major sponsorship deals and makes fighters millionaires. Amateur boxing is also growing exponentially, with those looking for a challenge attracted by the allure of the benefits to be realized. Indeed, boxing is increasing in popularity almost daily, with movies like Million Dollar Baby and massive pay-per-view events attracting millions of keen watchers.

Boxing has become a global phenomenon with tremendous cross-over appeal to the fitness industry, as well as cross training benefits for other sports wanting an upper body workout.
