GET FIT | LEARN TO DEFEND YOURSELF | COMPETE | HAVE A GREAT TIME

Hanuman Thai Boxing is the number 1 gym in Edinburgh for learning Muay Thai, whether you're a complete beginner or a seasoned pro. We hold classes in the afternoon and in the evening to suit your personal schedule, and our students come from all walks of life. Some of our students are interested in fighting, some want to learn self defence, and others are purely looking for a fun alternative to boring gym workouts. Muay Thai is the perfect way to accomplish all of the above, as well as being a great way to de-stress. 

Our two trainers, Roan and Wojtek have trained and fought in Thailand and regularly return there to hone their skills. They're not only passionate about Muay Thai, but they also take the safety of their students extremely seriously; That's why safety gear is provided and classes are trainer-led.
