Competition is never a requirement, but for the dedicated few who wish to pit their skills against opponents on the mat or inside the cage, we have the BETA Academy competition team. Your place on this team must be earned through hard work and determination. Tryouts are held only a few times a year.
The Muay Thai Competition Team (aka fight team) receives world-class training from Khun Kru Nakapan Phungephorn. In addition to being a world champion himself, Khun Kru Nakapan has trained numerous Muay Thai national champions and MMA Champions.
Our fight team practices are physically and mentally demanding and include: sparring and clinching, intense sport-specific conditioning exercises, advanced technical development, and drilling
Members of this elite team train as if they are preparing for a Muay That fight. While fighting in the ring is not a requirement of joining the team, many of the members have competed or have aspirations of competing in Muay Thai. Due to the intense level of training, students must either try out or be invited to the team in order to participate in these sessions.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Competition Team members regularly participate in tournaments. BETA Academy offers exclusive training sessions for members on the team specially geared toward the sport of BJJ and builds strategies that win competitions.
We also tap into the wide network of martial arts schools and invite outside students to participate in our competition training sessions and open mats. This provides our students with the opportunity to further hone their skills by giving them the option of training with a variety of different people.
Members of the elite MMA Competition Team are selected from the upper ranks of our Thai Boxing and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu programs. People who show dedication and determination in training are invited to join the team.
