Elite Martial Arts is proud to have formed an affiliation with The Sports Authority of Thailand. This is a direct certification through the Thai Government that holds our school to the highest training standards possible.
The programs is overseen by Ajahn Suchart is Canada’s first Muay Thai Instructor and currently serving as the Canadian National Muay Thai Coach. Many reputable Muay Thai instructor in the GTA and that matter, worldwide can trace their lineage and training back to Ajahn (Including EMA’s own Dan Novak who has trained extensively with Ajahn).
The Muay Thai program offered at Elite Martial Arts is a an authentic and properly taught as Muay Thai should be. All of the teaching methods and cultural aspects of traditional Muay Thai training have been held to the highest of standards. The program is offered under the supervision and guidance of Ajahn Suchart and instructed by EMA Owner and Head Instructor Dan Novak & his expert team of Kru’s and PC Kru’s. All of Muay Thai’s most effective techniques are taught to our students, including but not limited to punches, elbows, knees and kicks, as well as the corresponding defenses and clinch work.
Each Muay Thai class puts a great deal of emphasis on footwork, core strength, agility and endurance. These are the basic building blocks of Mauy Thai training that will form the foundation of your skill base as you progress in the system. Each Muay Thai class begins with a full body workout that is designed specificly for Muay Thai training, followed by lesson plans that teach technqiues on a progressive basis to build your skills set.
Students that enroll in Muay Thai do much better with their Krav Maga training. The two Martial arts are the ultimate compliment to one another. The devastating and effective techniques from Muay Thai can immediately be transferred to the street fighting aspects of Krav Maga. The end result is that students of Elite Martial Arts are getting a distinct training advantage over students enrolled in programs that are more one dimensional and out dated.
Our Muay Thai program is not only accredited by the Sports Authority of Thailand but EMA is also a recognized member of Muay Thai Ontario (MTO). Students in our Muay Thai program hav the opportunity to move up the Muay Thai rankings, achieve various certifications and even pursue competitive Muay Thai bouts within MTO sanctioned events.
EMA offers a variety of Muay Thai memberships which include “Muay Thai Only” options or “All Inclusive” options that combine our Muay Thai program with supplementary Krav Maga and Conditioning classes. For more information on Ajahn Suchart and Siamno1, please visit siamno1.com
“Throughout my life, I have had the opportunity to practice different
martial arts and styles. I have done Taekwondo, Ninjutsu, Jiu Jitsu,
Kickboxing and Muay Thai.
About two years and a half ago, I decided to practice something new and
that is when I came across Krav Maga and Dan Novak, owner and lead
instructor of Elite Martial Arts. Dan and all Elite instructors are
dedicated, knowledgeable, skilled but, most important, they are truly
committed to the individual growth of their students.
Krav Maga is a well-rounded set of techniques that truly prepare you for
real life situations and allows you to get out of them as fast and safe as
possible. Here, at Elite, the classes are focused on what can really
happen and what has proven to be an effective defense technique; it
doesn’t have to look nice or fancy, it just needs to work. Also, Elite
offers an awesome environment where women and men train together (men are
respectful and fair).
Recently, Dan partnered up with Siam and added a Muay Thai program. As a
person with previous experience in Muay Thai, I can truly say that this is
an invaluable program that relies on traditional practices (something I
value and look for in a school).
Since I started to practice Muay Thai in combination with Krav Maga, I
have noticed that my stamina, speed, strength and overall skills have
If you are looking for a school that prepares you for real life scenarios,
is dedicated to its students and their goals, offers a friendly
environment and allows you to grow within the program, Elite is definitely
the right place for you!”

“I had been training in Krav Maga at Elite Martial Arts for 8 months when
I decided to enroll in the Muay Thai program.
The training is intense and rewarding, focusing on the fundamentals of
Muay Thai. Dan and Nadine are detailed and intelligent instructors who
make sure students understand the basics of Muay Thai in order to lay the
foundation for their future growth as a martial artist.
The pre-class workout is targeted towards body strength and cardio and is
a great way to get in shape fast. I enjoy every class and always leave
having learned something new. My Muay Thai training has complemented my
Krav Maga training, allowing my striking to become faster,stronger, and
more accurate. Overall it has been a challenging and rewarding
