Scott Shields Martial Arts is amazing. I have been taking Muay Thai there for over 2 years and it is one of the best things I have ever done! I lost weight, got in shape and gained confidence! Also I have made great friends there, as everyone is a team and works to help each other improve. Now I have the honor of helping to teach the kids classes and being made an assistant instructor in Thai. The kids program is great and I see huge improvements in the children in various areas, especially focus, coordination, respect, self-discipline and control and CONFIDENCE! Now I am even branching out into the other offered- Jeet Kune Do, Kali and BJJ! Fun classes and fantastic instruction. Whether you want to get in shape, lose weight, make new friends or just start a fun new hobby or even fight, this is for sure the best place in Charlotte (ok Matthews technically)!
