Hi and good morning to Janjira Gym & Fitness and Fans. Wake up everybody "Jessieca Cervantez the Teacher" is now in the building. Well Teach , last night you where awesome in your fight at WCK Burband Conventions Center. You fought hard and you over came your insecurities about lasting a 3 round sanctioned fight. Guess what you have awoken the Tiger that is within you.

Think of it this way:
Your 1st fight with Wck was in San Diego,you fought women who came in 15 lbs + over weight the evening of your fight. Then lied about her fight record. Officially you won on all the official cards the first round, because you gave it your all you didn't understand about pacing yourself to last 3 rounds. You found out that had no energy. You took upon yourself and realized you had to learn about pacing yourself, so back to school you went.

2nd fight was last again with Wck, at Burbank Convention Center, u fought a great fight with a girl with a 2 win fight record and you almost took her to school. She wasn't the winner last night you WHERE! You over came your obstacles to fight and pace yourself and then you found out in the 3 round you had a second wind to fight back and challenge her for the win. It could have gone the either way, in my opinion you won last night. But I always say if you train hard with the mind set to win, it's about you as a fighter win lose or draw as long as you know in your heart that you felt good about yourself and your fight no mattter what the outcome is you know now you can continue as a WARRIOR in this Sport until you become the next Champion of the World. You over came your fears of lasting 3 rounds so you won!. Now it's time to focus on just WINNING! you have the tools. Most of all is what I found out and learned about you is “I Luv your heart! Jessieca "The Teacher" Cervantez " Congratulations" you became the Teacher last night and you went their to
“TEACH”! Coach David

Our Story

The martial art that is taught at Janjira Fitness is a mixture of Muay Thai, the combat sport from Thailand, kickboxing from Japan, and American boxing. Our programs include high intensity cardiovascular workouts which include stretching, breathing, focus, and conditioning for all our members. Our style includes the art of eight limbs which includes hand, feet, elbow, and knee combinations as part of our curriculum. Our philosophy is to learn all the same basics and philosophies of a world champion from the beginning. Doesn’t matter whether you’re a kid or an adult, come and experience the heat and burn calories with the best in the business. First-timers, come and experience a free class and train with professional Coach Victor Alvarez, and State Champion Kevin Gonzalez all mentored by legendary trainer and manager Coach David Krapes.

In 2011, Janjira Fitness was formerly known as Where Champions Are Made and was founded by 12-Time Welterweight World Champion Hector Pena "The Aztec Warrior." In 2015, he passed away and his legacy was continued by legends' fighter trainer Coach David Krapes and partner Rob Harper of Harper's Bar and Grill. They rebranded the gym to Janjira Fitness and kept "Where Champions Are Made" as the motto. The name "Janjira" is synonymous with the legendary Thai fighter from Thailand, Saekson Janjira, who David had worked closely with and helped train. Saekson operates his business today in Dallas, Texas. Today, we continue the legacy by mentoring our students under the philosophies of Muay Thai and kickboxing. We believe that all students should learn the discipline of The Art of Eight Limbs (Muay Thai), Urquidez kickboxing, and boxing to have a well-rounded off stand up martial art.

David Krapes

Known as the "Trainer of Champions" Legendary trainer, coach, and manager, David Krapes has been a Muay Thai and Kickboxing pioneer since the 1980s. He has helped train and manage the careers of many professional and amateur fighters such as legendary Thai fighter and 6-time Lightweight World Champion Saekson Janjira, 12-time World Champion Hector "The Aztec Warrior" Pena, Women's ISKA World Super-lightweight Champion Fredia "The Cheetah" Gibbs, 11-Time World Champion and K-1 Heavyweight Champion Rick "The Jet" Roufas, 7-time World Champion "Hard As Steel" Danny Steel, North American WKA Champion Efrin Conterras, WKA Light-Heavyweight Amateur Champion Edgar Fierro, #1 World Middleweight Contender of The World 1991 Mike "Colbra" Cole, Muay Thai Amateur Heavyweight Contender Chase Greenwood (12 wins - 0 losses), Joe Tushnik (8 KOs - 0 Losses), Mixed Martial Artist Amir Rahnavardi, BCBC State Champion Kevin Gonzalez, and upcoming professional fighter Victor Alvarez.
