Kru George Adamia
Started muay thai training in his early teens as a means to stay out of trouble and learn to defend himself. He was fortunate to have found world renowned trainer Saekson Janjira who was a 7 time Muay Thai world champion and had a studio in Plano, Texas. Saekson inspired a deep love for Muay Thai in George. He joined the team and soon made it onto the competition team and had his first muay thai match with Saekson in his corner. Saekson would would bring the best of the best from Thailand year after year. George trained and learned from golden era legends like Samart Payakaroon, Kaensak Sor Ploenchit, Deselnoi, and Woodenman Jongsannong . He was truly in Muay Thai heaven! The competition team was made up of top striking pros like brothers Anthony Njokuani, Chidi Njokuani, Pete Spratt, and Jason House just to name a few. For nearly a decade George was immersed in authentic pro Muay Thai Boxing training. After an injury George was forced to take a break from competition. But his love and passion for Muay Thai and Martial Arts still burned bright.

Muay Thai the Martial Art
Also known as the Science of the 8 Limbs, Muay Thai originated in Thailand as a Martial Art and remains its national sport. Muay Thai utilizes 8 Limbs for striking, Including hands, elbows, knees, feet, and shins. In addition to dynamic striking standup "clinch fighting" (grappling) is another element of Muay Thai that allows the practicioner to hold, throw, or subdue their opponent. Historically the native Thai martial art successfully defended the country from invading kingdoms on the indo-chinese peninsula for centuries. In fact Muay Thai practitioners would dominate style vs style matches against other malae martial arts styles from the same region. Muay Thai is widely considered the most effective standup martial arts system in the world because it utilizes striking from 8 limbs & stand up grappling with maximum efficiency. Training specifically improves striking ability from all 8 limbs, defense from all 8 limbs, stand up grappling ability, as well as strength & conditioning.
