Akaal Muay Thai In Southall


Recommended Posts

History of Muay Thai

Muay Thai is referred to as "The Art of the Eight Limbs", as the hands, shins, elbows, and knees are all used extensively in this art. A practitioner of Muay Thai ("nak muay") thus has the ability to execute strikes using eight "points of contact," as opposed to "two points" (fists) in Western boxing and "four points" (fists, feet) used in the primarily sport-oriented forms of martial arts.

Akaal Muay Thai


Akaal Muay Thai was set up with the concept of Seva. Our amazing trainers do not take a single penny for their efforts. They are happy in knowing that all students in Akaal Muay Thai are willing to learn and show willpower and determination. Not only that, but they are happy to donate all proceeds to charity. Other than the cost of the venue all your proceeds go to helping those in greater need then ourselves.

Our first mission was at the “UNIQUE HOME” Girls Orphanage in Jallandhur, all money raised was donated there.

Now we are working with Khalsa Aid and Sikh Prisoners charity, and all further proceeds will go to these charities. Please check out both charities that are doing great work voluntarily unlike other larger charities that are paid for their work.

Here at AKAAL MUAY THAI, we are very fortunate to be trained by instructors of the calibre and experience of such as KRU JAY (Jatinder Singh Dhillon), who have unparalleled knowledge in authentic Muay Thai. We have up to 5 Instructors per class, all whom teach voluntarily with a combined experience of fighting and learning of nearly 80 years!!

Gatka or Muay Thai ??

We firmly believe that weapons based training such as Gatka is essential for Sikhs (although Muay Thai does have a weapons based art – Krabi Krabong, this is for very advanced practitioners). This is why in Southall we have chosen Wednesdays so not to clash with the local Akharas whom we have close relations with.

However we also believe that hand to hand fighting is very important in the current climate, for example Shastars should only be used at the last resort, and sadly due to the poor physical and martial condition of many of us today, the Kirpan is likely to be the first resort. We aim to teach people to use the 8 weapons first (see above) they already possess before having to resort to the Siri Sahib.

Where and When

At the moment we have a weekly class on Wednesdays from 6.45pm to 9.00pm for £5 at Southall Community Centre, the same venue where the Baba Ajit Singh Ji Gatka Akhara holds their classes on Tuesdays from 7.00pm to 9.00pm.

Please support by showing up, just try it once and if it is not for you then that’s fine, we are aiming this at the Sikh community although all are welcome. Males and Females attend the class, but train separately from each other (same hall), the only restriction is that we do not wish to teach the wrong people i.e Thugs, hooligans groups who promote mindless violence. All students are vetted and we have a friendly family atmosphere.

Strict dress code: Round neck T-shirts and Joggers for Females and Round neck T-shirts and Joggers/Shorts for Males
