Children wanting to compete, and have their parents support, Pride Muay Thai has options that would allow the students to compete locally, provincially, nationally, and internationally. When junior fighters come along, they get extra attention outside of regular classes so that their desire to compete does not impact the kids that are not competing and just taking classes recreationally.
