What is Muay Thai


What is muay thai?

Muay Thai or Thai Boxing is a combat sport originating in Thailand, which uses stand-up striking along with various clinching techniques. Known as “the art of eight weapons”, Thai Boxing is characterised by the combined use of fists, elbows, knees and legs. 

Although Muay Thai is traditionally a combat sport, you are not required to compete or even participate in sparring.

Muay Thai has plenty of other benefits, including building confidence, self-defence skills, weight loss, increased fitness, strength and flexibility. Many attend classes as a way to dissolve the accumulated stress of the day, or to boost their energy levels. From beginners to advanced, whatever your skill or goal, Muay Thai has lots to offer.

Andrew "Hollywood" Colgrave

Andy is the head Muay Thai coach and owner of The Ring Gym. He brings a wealth of knowledge, skill and experience boasting over two decades of combined experience as a Muay Thai fighter and teacher.

In 1995, Andy started training in Muay Thai and with that it became a part of his everyday life. Also known as Andy “Hollywood” Colgrave, Andy competed at an elite level throughout Australia and Asia, gaining a mass of ring experience.

Shortly after winning an Australian title in 2009, Andy retired from fighting with 39 fights, and turned his focus to teaching. Andy began his Muay Thai coaching career at Dominance MMA where he played an integral role within the striking program. 

In 2012, Andy furthered his skillset becoming the MMA coach for Daniel Kelly. As Daniel’s striking coach, Andy has watched Daniel evolve from a local MMA fighter to a UFC star. He helped prepare him for some impressive victories with a solid record of 11 wins and only 1 defeat. Along with Daniel Kelly, Andy is working with a number of local MMA fighters to improve their stand up game.

In 2013, Daniel Kelly asked Andy to join the Resilience Training Centre as the head Muay Thai trainer. Andy quickly made an impact with classes growing rapidly and the establishment of a professional fight team.   

Given the mounting demand for Muay Thai classes and the growing stable of fighters, Andy decided to open his own specialised training facility in May 2016, and with that The Ring Gym was born.

Brett "The Beast" Franklin

One of Australia's best, Brett is no stranger to Muay Thai and brings an array of knowledge to the gym. Brett not only possesses slick and solid Muay Thai skills, but brings sharp boxing hands and impressive grappling strength. 

Brett earned his fight name "The Beast" on the Muay Thai circuit in Australia and abroad with good reason.

During his professional career, Brett fought with great success all over the continent, and spent two years living in Thailand where he fought out of some of Thailand’s toughest gym. 

Alongside head coach Andy, Brett helps prepare the entire professional stable of fighters, notably, Australian favourite, UFC Daniel Kelly.
