Modern sport, traditional roots

A traditional martial art and combat that originates from Thailand, Muay Thai is now practised worldwide and draws in practitioners from all backgrounds.

A full-body experience

Muay Thai often goes by the name of the “art of eight limbs”, with fighters recruiting their fists, elbows, knees and shins as they engage in stand-up striking and clinching.

Physicality meets spirituality

The sport is renowned not only for its physical intensity, but also its discipline, spirituality and the five values of respect, honour, fair play, excellence and tradition.

Who can train

Whether you’re a seasoned veteran or completely new to Muay Thai, you're welcome to train at the Club. Both university and non-university members can sign up for a membership.

Leading the training at our Club is head coach Chin-Liang (CL) Beh, who pioneered Muay Thai and kickboxing at Sydney Uni in 1998 and has been coaching for over 20 years.

How we train

Our Club runs structured and unstructured training to help you learn Muay Thai at your pace. Our 90 minute structured classes are led by the head coach, and take you through Muay Thai techniques, conditioning and fitness. This training is rounded off with strength and conditioning sessions designed to build your fitness.

When we train

We train throughout the week, throughout the semester, and throughout the year. 

Tuesday 7.30 - 9pm
Structured - Brydens Boxing Gym

Friday 6 - 7pm
Strength and conditioning - No Quarter Gym

Saturday 3 - 4.30pm
Structured - Brydens Boxing Gym

Where we train

Training takes place in Brydens Boxing Gym at the Sydney Uni Sports and Aquatic Centre—right in the heart of the University of Sydney. The gym is fitted with a boxing ring, heavy bags and other training fixtures, and has ample space for training.

Our strength and conditioning sessions are run at our partner gym No Quarter, 10 minutes' walk from Redfern Station.

What people are saying

Without an ounce of hesitation this 5 star constitutes my strong recommendation for CL as an instructor. For the two years of kickboxing I did under CL, he was a stand out act, till this day no instructor has shown to be equal - none have shown as much engagement, passion for the sport, professionalism.
— Nhuy Pham
A great trainer and a friendly environment. I met very nice people there, with whom I enjoyed the combination of fitness, conditioning, techniques and flexibility training in each session.
— Dheyaa Ali Hussein
CL is a patient, thorough & supportive trainer regardless of age, sex or experience. Whether you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced, you CAN take this class & benefit from it. I would highly recommend anyone & everyone to give it a go if you’re trying to get fit, lose weight, or de-stress from your daily life. All you have to do is show up.
— Suzi Tee

Gear up

A full-body sport calls for full protection. The following is a must if you want to train with the Club:


Boxing gloves: supports your hands when you deal devastating blows. Bring minimum 12-ounce gloves for training, and 16-ounce for sparring.

Mouthguard: protects your smile and jaw from hits taken in the face.

Hand wraps: holds your hands and wrists together with each punch you throw.

Breathable clothing: keeps your body cool, and gives you more range of motion in your punches and kicks.

Towel and drink bottle: so you can stay clean and refreshed during training.

Shoes off: as you’ll be kicking heavy bags and partners, a lot.

Shin guards: insulates your shins from heavy kicks.
