Our History:

JT Smith, owner of Lake Hickory, enjoys the regular exercise that Muay Thai  brings into his life. On his martial arts journey he trained and competed in Thailand and was first inspired to open Lake Norman Muay Thai in 2016. After implementing Rock Steady boxing into their Lake Norman school, they later learned of a Rock Steady boxing location in Lake Hickory that was going out of business.
