Coach Aileen & Coach Angela

ABOUT LKE DOJO

Our Story & Journey

Muay Thai transformed both of our lives in amazing ways, and now we love offering this life-changing art to Women and Queers in our Oahu community and beyond.

Coach Aileen found Muay Thai after a breakup, and two years later left her life as a sound engineer in Hollywood to pursue the art full time. Coach Aileen has taught over 1500 classes, fought in both Muay Thai and MMA, held a championship title, and coached/cornered both amateur and professional fighters. Having discovered a greater love for teaching than fighting, Coach Aileen is passionate about offering Women & Queers a holistic approach to high-level Muay Thai, and demonstrating how Muay Thai is more than a sport or an art, it is a way of life. 

Coach Angela came to Muay Thai at the age of 35 as a mother of three with zero martial arts background, and is a living example that one can be called to Muay Thai at any time. She believes in being a nurturing mother AND a warrior, feminine AND brutal, open-hearted AND capable of violence. Coach Angela is passionate about helping Women & Queers discover the confidence, self-love, discipline, strength, and freedom Muay Thai gave to her.
