Hi guys, hope this isn't a really dorky question, but I have tried the yellow pages and can't find anywhere that teaches Muay Thai in Melbourne - does anyone know if there is somewhere that does?

Oh, I'm in South Yarra but willing to travel as my friend I'm wanting to start with is in Altona. But my area would be best ;)

Blitz martial arts centre... If it was me, I'd check it out.
Run by Mark 'The Hammer' Castigni (or something) who, if memory serves me well, was a bad ass back in the day.

I train at Blitz, and yes Kru Mark was a professional fighter and former WKA champion. But most of all he is an excellent teacher without ego. He travels to Thailand regularly to the WMC camp in Koh Samui. Guys from the gym regularly go to Thailand for a bit of a training holiday.
The Blitz centre in Heathmont may just be a bit far from Sth Yarra and Altona!! I hear that he is teaching at Challenge Health Centre in Oakleigh, shortly.
You could try MKK, (www.mkk.com.au) it's in the city, they have kickboxing, but i'm not sure as to how 'Thai' it all is. It's primarily a KK centre.
You could also try Scidas gym in Sunshine or Hoppers Crossing, they train lots of ring fighters.
Do you just want fitness, or to maybe step in the ring one day?? Thai uses all 8 weapons (fists, feet/shins, knee and elbows), whilst kickboxing is usually just kicking and punching, and maybe knees. Thai also incorporates the grapple.

Johnny, by St Kilda PCYC, is that the Will-Machado BJJ school run by Leigh Impey? Lothene, that sounds like it would be a good opportunity to cross train in some grappling if ya like.
