I've been with Kru Chris Kew for 6 years, and his teaching and guidance have changed my life. His knowledge of Muay Thai, and his ablilty to build a strong competitive team is unparalleled. His school, his teaching, and spiritual guidance are the epitome of Muay Thai in Canada. Thank-you Kru Chris for everything you have done, and everything you continue to do, for me. All the best in 2012 from Sudbury BJJ and Muay Thai Academy!

I don't think anyone could ask for a more experienced and knowledgeable instructor/mentor as Kru Chris is to myself and the many many others that have been impacted by him on both a muaythai level and personal level. He makes you want to learn and work for something inside yourself you didn't think existed. His experiences as both a fighter and coach for many years in Thailand, North America, Europe and so has brought Muaythai in Canada to a whole new level. Truly an amazing teacher and human being and am very fortunate to work, learn and grow under Kru Chris and his staff. MAS Da Best! Darren Milani 2011 - Present

I have had the privilege of knowing as well as being a student of Kru Chrisís for the past few years. During my time training with Chris he has always been fair, honest, and always concerned about the thoughts and overall well being of all his students. He has always provided me the highest level of devotion and dedication to the art of training in Muay Thai. He provides an extremely comfortable training environment, as well as possesses an amazing talent for motivating you to achieve your Muay Thai and fitness goals. He has taught me that Muay Thai has no limits to size or physical capabilities, if you push hard you can achieve your goals and dreams. I look forward to working with Chris again this year after a short lay off in my time with him at MAS. Sincerely Christian Giesecke

I just started training at MAS this past November. It wasn't something I thought I would really have an interest in as I knew nothing about Muay Thai, but after just a few lessons I discovered that I really do enjoy it and am looking forward to continuing my training with Kru Chris, Ashley Nichols and Daniel Kechego! Their attention to detail and form is incredible. Even from the first day they have always made sure that I keep my form and technique accurate so that I don't hurt myself. I highly recommend MAS if you have an interest, hidden or otherwise, in Muay Thai!

Kru Chris has taught me Muay Thai for 4 years. He helped me when I needed it most and helped me find a better life! Kru Chris is a amazing teacher and excellent mentor! If you do one of his classes you will expand your knowledge of muay thai and fitness. His style is second to none and will take any fighter to a world class level. He does not only teach you about muay thai but also a lot about life and being a good person! MAS DA BEST

I've trained at MAS Academy of Martial Arts for two and half years at the guidance of Kru Chris. Excellent teacher with nothing but positive energy. His gym can transform you into a strong self-confident technical fighter. Aside from Muay Thai, Kru pays a lot of attention to the youth, any concerns they may have or any difficulties they are trying to surpass Kru is there to share his knowledge. I've had the privilege of being taught and mentored by Kru Chris and it's something I'll never forget. MAS THE BEST!

his knowledge, experience, and skill are so profound. there's not much you can say. the first Kru Chris seminar i attended, i saw my muay thai go from just the basics - and not being very good - to having a much deeper understanding of that which i was learning at our club. such a personable guy, really fantastic instructor... able to present the knowledge he has in such a way that regardless of your learning style, he will get through to you. really, get even just a 30min private with Kru Chris. you will understand. second to none - DA BEST!

Kru Chris is my coach & mentor. I have been to 3 other boxing gyms before finding out about MAS in Cambridge. I travel 25-30 mins to get to MAS and it is well worth it. I quit the other gyms because I felt like I wasnt getting enough attention and help in areas where I need to improve. Kru Chris will not only let you know your weaknesses and strengths, he will PERSONALLY make sure that you are improving by repetitive drills, sparring, padwork etc.! He walks around the room to every individual to let us know how to improve and when we do, he definitely lets us know!Kru Chris is a natural athlete and coach.

Kru Chris has been my sons instructor for almost 2 years now,he just loves Muay Thai ! Kru Chris is an amazing trainer,he works Riley very hard but not too hard to make him get discouraged,he seems to know what he is capable of doing.Riley loves to go to the gym for a good workout and he has much respect and admiration for Kru Chris who has taught him so much.Kru Chris treats Riley with the same respect as anyone else and not as "just a kid" and I like that.We are very proud to say he trains at MAS and would never dream of going elsewhere!!As a parent we all want what is best for our children and MAS DA BEST for this kid!!

I've been training at MAS with Kru Chris for almost 2 years now, and it's changed my life! I've never been athletic and now I am strong, confident and empowered. Kru Chris' guidance and belief in not just his athletes, but anyone who just walks in the door, coupled with his amazing passion for the sport is unparralled. He is an amazing teacher, friend and inspiration. Organized like a team, fight like a family!! MAS DA BEST!!!

I met kru Chris in a time in my life where things weren't so up and the knowledge and wisdom he provided me through his amazing muay Thai training in the gym and outside of the gym has helped me grow as an individual, it has also helped me in becoming a much more humble person in my life. Anyone who has asked me about martial arts and which gym to go to. My only answer is go to Mas and talk to kru Chris. I would like to thank kru Chris and the mas family for everything they taught me!

His passion for the sport of Muay Thai is the same passion he gives all his students when passing onto them his knowledge and skills. Can't imagine being trained by anyone else but Kru Chris Kew.

Kru Chris is the best! I decided to sign my two girls up for MAS almost 2 years ago. I also signed up myself. Such a great place to train. Everyone is super friendly and always encouraging one another. Training is always different, never gets stale. Will continue training here for a long time.
