I started training Muay Thai for fun and fitness mid last year and decided to come to Thailand for the experience. Lamai Gym was highly recommended by trainers at home in Sydney and I can see why. The trainers here are great and have really focused on teaching me the correct technique. The one on one sessions were especially good for this and really good value for money. I was a little nervous travelling on my own but all of the people here have been really friendly and helpful and I’ve learnt a lot in 3 weeks. Wish I could stay longer, can’t wait to come back ! infact i will be back in January 2012 !!

Muay Thai Lessons in Koh Samui, Thailand

If you are looking for Muay Thai lessons in Thailand, you probably won’t have to look too far. Muay Thai is Thailand’s national sport and many ex-fighters realise they can make good money by sharing their ring-honed skills with eager trainees from all over the World.

Research Muay Thai training before you arrive in Thailand

If you are looking for Muay Thai lessons in Thailand, it pays to do your homework before you arrive. There is no shortage of top-class gyms to choose from in Bangkok, but Bangkok is a big, dirty, smelly city and you might be in for a horrible shock even though the training is exactly what you are looking for. Similarly, you might have ideas about living out in the back of beyond, surrounded by rice farmers and learning Muay Thai in a ruined temple, just like Jean Claude Van-Damme in the film Kickboxer. The reality is that these remote areas tend not to have Muay Thai training facilities as trainers realise they can make more money by relocating to where the tourists are.

Where can I find Muay Thai lessons in Thailand?

So, if you are looking for Muay Thai lessons in Thailand, choose a more-touristy area or a big city. Chiang Mai, Ubon Ratchatani and Bangkok are some bigger cities you might want to consider. For tourist areas, look into Phuket and Koh Samui. Smaller islands like Koh Phang Ngan, Koh Yao Noi and Koh Tao all have Muay Thai camps but the quality of their training isn’t always as high as the gyms in the busier areas which can draw in more tourists and attract better trainers.
Most Muay Thai camps offer pretty similar setups, regardless of where in the country you decide to train. Gyms will welcome first-time holiday makers who want to work up a sweat and try something new as well as hard-as-nails veterans with 30 plus fights under their belt.

Do I need to be fit to train Muay Thai in Thailand?

If it is your first time, join a Muay Thai group session and prepare to sweat. These sessions usually last about 2 hours and take place early in the morning, starting around 7am, and in the early evening, starting around 5pm. Your Muay Thai lesson will consist of a warm-up (usually a run around the block), shadow boxing, technique and sparring with a partner under the strict instruction of a trainer, bag work and finally a couple of rounds of hitting the pads with a trainer. This should cost around 250 THB depending on where you decide to train but you definitely get your money’s worth.

Can I live at the Muay Thai camp?

If you are more serious about your training, you can usually find accommodation in or near to your chosen camp and pay monthly for unlimited training sessions. This often means the morning and evening session 6 days per week, so it’s an opportunity to improve your Muay Thai enormously in a short space of time.
