Who Are We?

AKA Thailand is owned by original AKA team member, Mike “Quick” Swick, internet magnate, Blair Speers, and AKA founder, Javier Mendez. Our gym attracts students of all levels along with many of the world’s best fighters, and helps nurture future world champions through its elite training programs. While AKA Thailand is a new facility, the AKA team is long-standing and well established in MMA, kickboxing, and the combat sports community as a whole. American Kickboxing Academy (AKA) was founded by Javier Mendez, with the first gym opening in San Jose, USA in 1985. To date, AKA has produced a record number of champions in organizations such as UFC, K1, Strikeforce, Bellator, KOTC, ONEFC and more.
