ABOUT US

The Muay Thai Martial Arts Academy (MTMAA) was founded by Ajaan (Professor) Somboon Tapina so that he could share his knowledge and love of the sport of Muay Thai.

Throughout his many years of training, working and studying with other Muay Thai martial artists, Ajaan Somboon has developed a comprehensive method for training and studying Muay Thai . His methods combine practical fighting techniques with the latest scientific principles of muscle use and body movement. Here at MTMAA we feel that it is important to teach methodologies that are practical in combat situations and scientifically sound.

MTMAA is located in the heart of Suratthani, Thailand.  This bustling, growing city displays both the traditional Thai cultures and the modern, more progressive aspects of Southeast Asia.

Honorable Award To Ajaan Somboon Tapina For achievement of Best Practical in Physical Education

Presented by Society of Health, Physical Education and Recreation of Thailand

On the occasion of the 16th National Meeting of Members,
Wangthai Hotel , Surat Thani July 20th 1993

 

Honorable Award To Mr. Somboon Tapina Expert in Muay Thai and Amateur Boxing Excellent Instructor, Speaker and Head of Technical Committee ( Muay Thai and Amateur Boxing )

Presented by : Mr. Warot Sripairode
Chairman Thai and Amateur Boxing Department
Surat Thani, June 15th 1989

 

Desire is the key to motivation...

But it’s determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal – a commitment to excellence – that will enable you to attain the success you seek.

I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times. -Bruce Lee

Being proficient in small set of basic techniques is more important than practicing a million flashy techniques. Training so many techniques at once will mean that you won’t really be learning them. Quality repetition is required to naturally reproduce that movement on demand.

Don't Quit.

Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a Champion. – Muhammed Ali
