" MUAY THAI HAS BEEN THE TURNING POINT IN MY LIFE. ITS SHOWN  ME HOW TO BETTER MYSELF PHYSICALLY EMOTIONALLY AND MENTALLY. THE TRADITIONS ARE SO RICH WITH CULTURE AND RESPECT. THAT'S WHAT I LOVE ABOUT BEING ABLE TO PASS ALONG SUCH A GREAT MARTIAL ART. I GET TO HELP PEOPLE FEEL BETTER ABOUT THEMSELVES PHYSICALLY AND EMOTIONALLY .  NOT ONLY ARE WE LEARNING HOW TO PHYSICALLY BECOME STRONGER BUT WE  ARE PASSING ON TRADITION THAT HAS BEEN PUT IN PLACE WAY BEFORE OUR TIMES. I HAVE DEVOTED THE LAST TEN YEARS OF MY LIFE TO THE ART OF MUAY THAI AND IT HAS LED ME TO THE GREATEST MEMORIES OF MY LIFE, FROM MEETING GREAT FRIENDS TO HOLDING MY FIRST DAUGHTER IN MY HANDS. I SEE MYSELF PASSING THIS MARTIAL ART DOWN TO MY DAUGHTERS SO ONE DAY THEY CAN CONTINUE EXPANDING SPIDER MUAY THAI. NOT ONLY ARE WE BUILDING A TEAM BUT WE ARE BUILDING A FAMILY.  " - COACH FRANKY CHAVEZ

HEAD COACH FRANKY CHAVEZ

I walked into my first dojo weighing 235 pounds. Pretty far fetched and hard to believe I competed in bouts at 155 pounds. Pretty hard to believe but it isn't something impossible. All is possible with the right mind set and determination to be a better you. A few months ago I faced one of my toughest battles and during this test that life threw at me I had a rebirth. A sudden realization for what my purpose on earth is. I was blessed with so much knowledge in the fight game that it would be simply selfish and ignorant not to share it with anyone. Why not help someone be great? Why not teach someone or pass on what you have learned to someone else? What better feeling than seeing one of your pupils perform a technique you taught them and reap the rewards from it! Teaching anyone because I don't care if you're doing it for competition or just for fun and seeing them smile after learning an awesome technique makes me feel complete. Helping an individual remove the self doubt of saying "I can't" to "I can". I look to inspire individuals to reach deep within themselves and discovers that they are completely capable of anything and everything.
