Generation Muay Thai

Generation Muay Thai – Project Timor Leste is a project by our good mate Albert ‘Timorese Assassin’ Xavier and Absolute’s Anthonie ‘El Gringo’ Trejo!

The goal of the project is to give the Timorese youth access the art of Muay Thai, educate the children from schools and communities on basic health education and inspire the children to take up sports, stay fit and active.

A major part of the project will be supporting the local club, ‘Sport Dilie Benfica’ by supplying them with a new boxing ring and better boxing equipment!

A worthy cause so if you can, please get behind the guys and help them spread the beautiful art of Muay Thai!

On August 7 from 7pm, the guys are holding a fundraising night featuring live music and entertainment.

Farewell Tyler, Hello Mehrdad and Connor!

This week we sadly say farewell to our wrestling coach, Tyler Petee, as he is returning back to America on Monday. His last class is at the Melbourne CBD gym on Saturday at 11.30AM. We’re looking forward to seeing you all there to say goodbye!

To those feeling gloomy over coach Tyler’s farewell, don’t think that this will mean the end of wrestling at Absolute! We’ve got two stellar coaches lined up to take the wrestling classes starting next week!

Welcome to the Absolute MMA team Mehrdad Tarash and Connor Evans! We’re really looking forward to learning from two of the very best wrestlers in Australia!

With the exception of the Friday morning class in the CBD, wrestling classes will continue uninterrupted next week.
