Nak Muay Gym’s Muay Thai program is lead by founder Kru Eric Karner.
Nak Muay Gym’s Brazilian Jiu Jitsu program is lead by co-founder Professor Tim Carpenter.
Tim Carpenter is a professional Bellator MMA Fighter and BJJ Black Belt. We are proud of the pedigree of instructors at Nak Muay Gym. We are proud of our lineage, we are proud of our students!
We are a true MMA school based on different martial arts styles. MMA could mean sport MMA, if you choose to train for sport or competition. But for the majority of our students, competition is not why they seek out our school. It is the desire to want to learn a striking and grappling art and to generally mix or ” blend ” two pure styles. Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu are our two core programs.
