Peter Kent - Head Trainer

Head Trainer Peter Kent started his journey when he sought out training for Muay Thai. With the scarcity of Muay Thai in Australia, it led Peter to visit Thailand to gain a better understanding of the sport, coming back with the idea of establishing Matrix Gym.

Since then, we’ve trained world class fighters including Frank Giorgi and Nathan Corbett who secured his first world title in 2003. More trips between Thailand and Australia meant that Matrix fighters could learn as much as they could and bring back the knowledge, and continue to grow in skill.

Fast forward to 2015, Matrix Gym introduced Boxing, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and MMA programs.

For nearly 30 years, we’ve established ourselves as a leading Boxing and Muay Thai gym on the Gold Coast, and have produced some of the best Australian Muay Thai fighters. Come and see what we’re all about and try us out.

frequently asked questions

How many boxing lessons you need really boils down to what you’re aiming for and how fit you are to start with. If you’re just starting out, kicking off with 2-3 lessons a week is a good call to make sure you’ve got enough downtime between classes.


You are never too old to start learning boxing. Boxing can be adapted to suit a range of ages and fitness levels. It’s advisable, however, to consult with a healthcare professional before starting any new physical training programme, especially if you have pre-existing health conditions.


As a beginner boxer, focus on mastering the fundamentals, including stance, footwork, and basic punches. It’s crucial to build a solid foundation with good technique to prevent injuries and improve effectiveness. Regularly attending classes will help you to progress.


Certainly, boxing can be pursued purely as a hobby. Many people enjoy boxing for its fitness benefits, the skills they learn, and the community they become part of, without the intention to compete. Boxing is a versatile sport that accommodates various levels of interest and commitment.
