Here’s what some of our students have to say about the Sitnarong Muay Thai and Carlson Gracie BJJ classes at Knockout.

        “Highly recommended. Not being from Christchurch and Having tried a couple of Muay Thai gyms around Christchurch Sitnarong is by far the best. Not only are the facilities and equipment top notch compared to other gyms but the trainers and people who train there are so welcoming and very friendly.
The same amount of time is given to the more advanced and beginners like myself during the sessions.With either Muay Thai or boxfit there is something on every evening and Saturdays to cater for people with busy work schedules. I’m the fittest I’ve ever been in such a short space of time. So if your looking to get fit at your own pace in a friendly non intimidating environment then Sitnarong is the place for you.” Terry T

“Training with the team has been great, I have really improved my fundamental skills and overall game. Coach Jader is excellent at explaining technique and is very friendly and welcoming. He has great experience in Brazil and is also good at making us understand things from a fighting or MMA point of view, not just sport Jiu Jitsu”. Ben S
