East Coast Fighter Martial Arts & Fitness was created and founded by Kru ("Kru" means instructor in Thai) James Armlin. Kru Armlin started offering instruction in Muay Thai in early 2008 in Mint Hill at a very small (500 Sq. Ft.) space, then moved into a larger (3000 Sq. Ft.) space near the Police and Fire Training Academy, which grew rapidly.
ECF is now located in the Southend area of uptown Charlotte, NC,
with a state of the art 6,000 Sq. Ft. facility, custom built with training amenities to help our members strive for their personal goals, be they fitness, self-actualization, competition, stress relief, or social bonding.
Our Academy has helped many men and women to develop into champions in life, as well as on the mats.

Kru James Armlin himself - Muay Thai (all levels)
