James Gregory

James g 2018 2

James Gregory has studied Muay Thai since early 2009. He has trained, taught, and fought under champions including Rigel Balsamico, Justin Greskiewicz, Coban Lookchaomaesaitong, Namkbuan Lookchaomaesaithong, Melchor Menor. His current trainer is Mike Lemaire. Muay Thai helped James overcome a lot of personal challenges, and considers it a gift for which he is extremely thankful. James has 30+ fights, including smokers amateur match fights, and still actively compete. Fighting is something he finds both very enjoyable and challenging, but uses it as a way to give back to his students, which he enjoys the most. His classes focus on a balance of understanding ideas and repeating skills. Students need to understand the reasoning behind technique, but that understanding is not enough—mastery comes through repetition. James maintains an energy in class that is both open and welcoming, while at the same time challenging. He wants people to be happy and work hard. James also coaches other amateur fighters, working to pass on what he knows and help others challenge themselves in the ring.


  • Over 30 Muay Thai fights
  • Practiced Muay Thai for 10 years
  • Current active fighter

"HIGHLY RECOMMEND! I love coming to this place. I always wanted to learn boxing, muay thai, and jiu jitsu without embarrassing myself. I tried a few other gym before coming here, but they were filled with too much ego-- especially from the students. I felt like I was on the karate kid movie! The vibe here at this gym is always positive! i started off with a free pass, then group-on, and eventually signing up! Everyone is here to workout, have fun, and learn new fighting styles.
