Women’s MMA, strength and conditioning, wellness and nutrition will be part of the new 7,000 square foot Warrior Academy, opened in the Western Districts of Hong Kong last month.

The Warrior Academy is the second facility of the warrior family, born four years ago in Fortress Hill with Warrior Muay Thai. The gym was created by founders Billy Tam and Ricky Cheuk.

The duo have gone on to build a team of highly decorated trainers from Thailand providing authentic coaching expertise in the art of Muay Thai. From there they progressively targeted strength and conditioning and nutrition consulting, elevating the performance level of their fighters.

The Warrior Academy is a unique all-encompassing concept and space, bridging martial arts, strength & conditioning, wellness and nutrition.

This fully equipped 7,000 square feet space, with an internationally accredited and qualified coaching team is bringing a complete holistic health and fitness experience.

“We strive to not only make our members feel at home but to empower them to achieve their health and fitness goals. Here at the Warrior Academy, we believe that there is a warrior in everyone and our mission is to help them find it.” says co-founder and head of strength and conditioning, Tricia Yap.

Yap is also heading up a women’s MMA class and says interest so has been strong.
