Welcome to Southside
It all began in 1996 with a single athlete participating and winning a local inhouse tournament. Today Southside Muay Thai Academy is one of North America's largest and accomplished amateur Muay Thai facilities. Our team has won tournaments across Ontario and Canada, The United States of America and many other parts of the world.
Southside was catipulted to prominance in 2009, when one of our athletes won one of two gold medals for Canada at the International Federation of Muay Thai Amateur (IFMA) world championships in Bangkok, Thailand. Recognized as the tournament that most closely reflects the Olympics, this accomplishment has only been achieved by a handful of Canadians in history.
The Southside team is among the most innovative in the industry, continously exploring and researching the best way to teach and train our athletes, providing an experience like no other. We began emphasizing personal choice and an enriched training atmosphere for our members in 2011 with the introduction of team oriented training reflected in our slogan; The Force of A Team . Today this type of training is now commonly found in many other gyms and training facilities. Most notably, only Southside offers an array of training experiences and competitve opportunities and extra curricular activities were members and staff can enjoy world class training and adventures.
Southside Muay Thai Academy reached another milestone when our team achieved the 2012, 2013 and 2014 team cup award at TBA-SA World Classic, North America's largest amateur tournament for Muay Thai. This three peat team award resembles the family oriented training that we continue to pride our foundation and core strength from.
The year 2014 was a remarkable year of recognition and growth as our team was awarded for the second year in a row "Team of the Year" by Muay Thai Ontario. Our latest team accomplishment occured at the 2016 Nationals when we won our fith team cup award in seven years.
