JAI SUA - MUAY THAI
About Our Club
Jai Sua was founded in Bray in 2014 and has since grown to become the town's biggest and most successful martial arts club and a huge part of the local community. Our club ethos is guided by the principal that everyone has something to gain from martial arts.
While many of the kids train for fun, to keep in shape and as a social outlet, we also have one of the most successful junior competition teams in the country. We have a string of Dublin, Irish and UK/Ireland champions on our books. We have also built a hugely successful senior competition team and the biggest professional Muay Thai team in the country.
Muay Thai has been growing rapidly across the world and will be a demonstration sport at the rescheduled Tokyo Olympics. It is expected to be a full Olympic sport four years later. Our fighters will be competing fiercely for places on the first ever Irish Olympic Muay Thai team.
We also provide group training to a string of local organisations including the SEK school and adult special needs group Festina Lente.
Jai Sua Muay Thai is headed up by former professional Thaiboxer Rob Carry. In his 15 years in the sport, Carry fought out of Waterford Muay Thai and Warriors Muay Thai in Dublin. Carry also competed internationally, fighting out of Sitsongpeenong Gym in Phuket Thailand and Chakrit Muay Thai in Bangkok.
Carry founded Jai Sua Muay Thai in 2014 and with the help of assitant coaches Chao Fairtex, Craig Nolan, Eoin Lawlor and Alisha Hiu, has built the club to become one of the biggest and most successful Muay Thai gyms in the country.
Jai Sua Muay Thai has a decorated team of junior coaches with over 100 fights between them.
Nolan has is one of the most well known fighters on the Irish Muay Thai scene. At 15, Nolan became one of the youngest Thaiboxers in Ireland to compete at A class pro level. In the years since, he has secured a string of highlight reel knockouts. Nolan has competed around the world, most notably winning by KO vs a Thai opponent on Max Muay Thai – Thailand's biggest televised Muay Thai promotion.
After a hugely successful time competing in kickboxing, Lawlor moved over to Muay Thai in 2015. Known as creative, entertaining fighter, Lawlor quickly built up a string of titles in both Muay Thai and K1, becoming Dublin and Ireland champion at amateur level. Lawlor now competes at pro level and is one of the top ranked fighters in his weight division.
In her six years with Jai Sua Muay Thai, Alisha Hiu has won a stunning eight junior Muay Thai and K1 titles. The former Dublin, Ireland and UK/Ireland champion marked herself out as one of Europe's best female fighters in her weight class. In 2020, she became the first ever junior fighter to compete for the inaugural WBC Junior Muay Thai World Title in Belgium.
