  • What should I bring/wear to class?

    The number one DG accessory: water! Except for the classes that require a uniform, we suggest comfortable athletic attire. Shoes are not permitted on the gray mats but may be worn on the black mat. Should you have questions about specific questions about your particular class, just ask any instructor—or fellow student!  

  • What do I want to get out of the Muay Thai program?

    Sometimes the most important questions are those we ask ourselves. By determining your personal goals, and expressing them to us, you have the opportunity to be sure that our program is the right fit for you. So take a moment to discern your personal goal—be they regarding your fitness, your health, or your mental/emotional well-being—and use that introspection to your advantage to make sure you get everything out of our classes that you’re hoping for—and much, much more.

  • It seems like every one that trains Muay Thai is really young, am I too old?

    No way! Our classes have a range of age groups. We teach teenagers all the way through students in their 60s. We can do this only because our program is technique and curriculum based, enabling us to tailor drills and workouts to your individual needs.

  • I want to sign up early. What should I do?

    That’s great! All you have to do is give us a call to let us know and we’ll set an earlier appointment for you.

  • How many women train at Dragon Gym Muay Thai?

    Actually, a lot! The classes at DGMT have just about a 50-50 male to female student ratio. Muay Thai is all about the use of technique and is perfectly suited for females—a demographic we specialize in teaching.

  • What should I do if I can’t make it to one of my trial classes?

    If you can’t make it to one of your designated trial classes, just let us know! All you have to do is give us a call at (610) 363-7575, and we’ll schedule in a new class for you.

  • Where are Dragon Gym's MuayThai Kickboxing Classes Located?

    The original DGMT is located at the legendary Dragon Gym Martial Arts and Fitness facility in Exton, PA. The address is 267 S. Whitford Road, Exton, PA. We are just minutes away from Downingtown, West Chester, and Malvern, PA.

  • When are Muay Thai classes held and how do I get more information?

    We offer a variety of Muay Thai classes through the week. However, we start all new students with a free, no obligation orientation lesson with one of our Muay Thai Instructors. This will give you a chance to see what Muay Thai training is all about and give us the chance to recommend the best program for you. Just give us a call 610-363-7575 and we’ll be more than happy to help you get started.

  • Do I have to fight or compete?

    No. Not everyone who trains Muay Thai is a fighter. Most of our students take classes to learn the art of Muay Thai, gain some self-defense skills, get in great shape and be part of a supportive community. We take you as far as you’re comfortable going and will guide you every step of the way if, one day, you decide that you would like to mark a Muay Thai match off your bucket list.

  • There’s a lot of talk about technique and progression, but I just want to learn how to fight. Can I compete if I want to?

    You sure can. Of course, we want to make sure you’re proficient in the basics and have sound fighting technique first. Then you can join the DGMT fight team. We actually have two WKA world champs on our team and Head Instructor Lonnie Beck is a member of the WKA National Team coaching staff.
