  2. #2 Revolution Muay Thai

    Edgar G.

    When I went to meet Uriel Figueroa for the the first time at Revolution Dojo I was really impressed, he has a personality that many people would find very easy to get along with. My first one hour private lesson was all I needed to know that Uri is an excellent teacher, had I had more teachers like him in school I would've payed more attention and graduated with honors. Training is in short a grueling fun work out, you're sweating all over but at the same time it's all a learning experience, Uri will not only show you how to correctly perform a move but will demonstrate what will happen if you don't do it properly. Whether it be for sport or for fun you'll know you'll be headed in the right direction with Uriel as your mentor

  3. #3 Marshall Arts of Texas: Personal Martial Arts Training in Defense of Kids and Family.

    (3 reviews)

    Tamara A.

    John is very helpful, knowledgable and low key. He is also a great bargain. We hired him to teach basic self defense to our daughter who is entering college this fall in private lessons. He gives practical skills without expecting you to become a black-belt in martial arts. He is very flexible on scheduling as well and works within your schedule. Highly recommend.

Thumbtack Spotlight

Revolution Muay Thai

(11 reviews)

What do you love about your job?

I love what I do because I get to interact with people on a level that isn't an everyday occurrence in their day-to-day lives. I get to teach people how to defend themselves, how to get in shape, and how to improve themselves as a person, all through Muay Thai, which is the thing I have a fierce passion for. The fact that I am able to share that with people and the opportunity to see how it changes their lives in a positive way make what I do even more rewarding.

Who inspired you to start your own business?

I still maintain my day job, but I am looking and working towards a goal to where I can be free from a cubicle cell from 8 to 5 so that I can be where I can do what I love. As the saying goes, if you love what you do, it's not work!
