HEAD COACH & FOUNDER Jason Woodham
Jason Woodham started Muaythai in 1999 Essex England where he had his first fight in 2000. He fought in the UK at the top level for 9 years where he gained a reputation of having a ''crowd pleasing heart'' driven style before moving to Thailand in 2009. Jason Woodham raked up 56 fights in 3 years all around the world learning from legends such as Nokweed Devy, Trainer Gae, Pidang Devy and training with elite level fighters such as Tum Madsua, Thiago Tiexeria, Dzhabar Askerov, Franky Peredes and Valentina Shcevshenko. As a result he picked up a vast amount of knowledge and skills. In 2013 Jason moved to Dubai where he worked with Dubai MMA pioneer Tam Khan for 4 years and had the chance to add more to his arsenal by training with the likes of Mike Passiner, Rico Verhooven, Ghokan Saki , Benjey Zimmerman , Challid Arrab and Stefan Leko whilst spending almost two years training along side MMA star Yasubey Enomoto who taught him how to train for MMA striking. Jason has a lot to teach with a hybrid style of technical Muaythai and agressive kickboxing style.

" …..Dubai’s Best Muay Thai Instructor…Jason Woodham!
Training with Jason has been amazing. I have trained with many instructors in group class and/or private training. As with many sports, coaching is a major component to your success. Jason is a very intuitive and skilled coach. Having the ability to teach and correct technique. He is very precise with great attention to all aspects of the art. His knowledge of the mechanics has been critical in my training. Jason has an advantage over many instructors. He has the ability not only to be a great fighter, but a great instructor as well, which is a rare combination. Therefore, he seems to have a deeper understanding of how to train.It doesn’t matter if you are a seasoned fighter, aspiring fighter, enthusiast, or beginner, Jason has the ability to bring out the best in you. I really struggled with improving my technique and honestly getting discouraged with Muay Thai. I had the basic knowledge, but I was unable to execute the techniques effectively from previous poor coaching. From my very first private lesson with Jason I saw improvement in my technique. Jason took me back to the basics and I felt like a beginner once again, but my progress has been quite rapid. I feel much more confident that my technique is solid and I am improving lesson to lesson.Jason is also a very personable trainer. He helps motivate me with not only knowledge but great humor! Dubai’s Best Muay Thai Instructor has Character!"

Jason has taught me the literal meaning of go hard or go home!! He is a fantastic teacher and coach with a unique style. He will push you when you're being lazy, explain things when you don't understand and motivate you when you need motivating. He has a great attitude towards training and towards life. Jason doesn't just stand there holding pads and saying well done. Every time we train he teaches new techniques and refines the basics. He demands that you focus and train hard and he will make you put as much effort and technique into your 50th kick as your first! I always feel privileged to train with Jason because he is one of the very best trainers in Dubai and as a total beginner to Muay Thai with no experience in any martial arts I can't believe the progress that I have made in 7 months. He is has so much experience from his own days as a Nak Muay and this is what you get from every session with him. He literally lives and breathes Muay Thai
2 months ago I went here for the Muay Thai Muppets. Probably the only gym in Dubai where you get that nice homely and family feeling. Ive been training in 6 different countries and many more gyms and I can highly recommend the Muay Thai here lead by Jason Woodham who is a very well experienced and good coach.
