Florida Muay Thai’s mission is to provide a safe and fun environment that empowers people to improve their health, strength, and confidence in all areas of life.
Florida Muay Thai was founded in 2011 by two best friends, Robert Mosier and Paul Marfort, on their way home from the King’s Cup Supreme Muay Thai tournament in Italy. Tired of the mediocre life he was living, Robert walked in to a gym Paul was teaching at one day, looking to make an immediate, positive lifestyle change. Paul was raised in Argentina, grew up training Muay Thai, and had been fighting since the age of 14.
They became quick friends, with Paul becoming Robert’s fight coach within months. Robert eventually worked to become a trainer as well, and the two continued to work together for the next five years. They transitioned to another gym during this time, but could not shake the feeling that there was something missing – that they could do better. So on the long flight home, they grabbed a napkin and started scribbling plans for their future – Florida Muay Thai. They were able to find a small location to share with a jiu jitsu club, and off they went! Slowly they built up their clientele and continued to move to larger spaces, helping more and more people along the way.

"If you want to learn Muay Thai and you're in Orlando, this is the place to be! Coach Rob and Ardeshir are amazing and make everyone feel welcomed and provide great instruction. Learning combat sports/martial arts can be intimidating but they do a great job at helping you learn and grow not only as a martial artist, but as a person. Rob is an inspiration and always provides positive energy and motivation to help you dig deep and finish class knowing that you gave everything you had. My only regret is not signing up sooner."
"I'm absolutely amazed how far I've come in a year! I was trying to find a Muay Thai place that wasn't MMA and came across Florida Muay Thai. I wanted to do one on one classes since I have health issues. I met Ardeshir he was very patient and intuitive. Slowly but surely helped built up my confidence and strength and ability. I really cannot thank him enough for this journey I've surprised myself on how far I've been able to push and how much I've learned this has been an amazing experience and I'm just going to keep going!"
"The best Muay Thai gym ever!!! I go anxiously and excited!!! I love being there; it’s like another world inside of there where you forget all your problems and duties for the time you’re there!!! Love this place and it’s people!!!"
"Florida Muay Thai is an amazing gym. The coaches are determined to help you and they are some of the kindest people you will meet. The members and coaches are like family, pushing one another to always strive for better. I have trained here for a year and I have never regretted a second of it. I Would definitely recommend it for anyone who is looking to fight professionally, train casually, or even just looking to just improve their fitness."
"Had the chance to train here with my boys. They know their stuff and worked great with my kids. Anyone wanting to learn Muay Thai or have their kids learn it, check out Florida Muay Thai!"
"I love working out in this supportive and diverse spot! The coaches truly do care about every single person that comes through, and the whole place has got a friendly, inclusive vibe. I've learned so much in the past few months, and I love how good of a workout it is! I feel stronger and more skilled after only a short time, and I feel totally comfortable and at home there. *Highly* recommended!"
"Oh man! I can’t say enough great things about this place! Very welcoming and make you feel a part of the family right away. I’ve trained at almost every gym around here and I’ve found a new home for Muay Thai!"
"Found this place looking for asian food. Went to go check it out without knowing anything about Muay Thai or caring about sports in general. One of the greatest choices I've ever made. All the coaches here are excellent, and have their own unique way of teaching. Don't worry if you're inexperienced or out of shape. The coaches will help you get settled in. Everyone here is super chill and friendly. If you have any interest in not just Muay Thai, but joining a positive community, then I highly recommend this place! It has basically become a second home for me!!"
"I heard about Muay Thai from a friend, and decided to come to this gym to try it out for myself. Needless to say, it was an amazing desicion. The gym is such an open place where you can train and learn how to better yourself with the help of the amazing coaches and owner, no matter your skill level, the only thing that matters is your passion and drive. The coaches all are extremely open when it comes to helping new students, and they will tell you when you are making mistakes, and show you how to improve and learn upon them. Amazing place to learn how to fight, get fit, or just have some fun. If you want to learn fighting or a martial art Muay Thai is one of the best."
