Muay Thai in Thailand
Muay Thai, otherwise known as Thai Boxing, is Thailand’s national sport. It is widely regarded as the most popular martial arts disciplines in South East Asia, and is renowned worldwide for its high intensity and fierce nature. This mentally and physically demanding discipline is known as ‘the art of eight limbs’ which refers to the combined use of the 8 points of contact on the body: hands, feet, elbows and knees.

Muay Thai gained international recognition throughout the 20th century, and is now one of the world’s most popular martial arts disciplines with many fighters descending on Thailand each year to pursue their passion.

Your Muay Thai Boxing Training Experience
This unique experience is a fantastic opportunity to either pick up the basics and learn the art of Muay Thai, or to build on your previous experience of the sport and advance your skills through expert training in the country of the sport’s origin.

Muay Thai is known around the world for being one of the most intense and physical martial arts, as well as one of the most exclusive. During your time on the training camp you will experience authentic and traditional boxing classes, which aim to demonstrate the foundations and more advanced technicalities of the exquisite Muay martial art discipline.

Experienced instructors, many whom have fought professionally, with the lead teacher being the provincial champion of the Singburi district, will lead your training sessions, getting the best out of you during your time in Thailand. You will have a coordinator assigned to you at the start of your placement who will be on hand to translate the trainers instructions and explanations into English, and also teach you some Thai, so that you can make the most of your training sessions and soak up as much knowledge and wisdom as possible.

Training takes place early in the morning to take advantage of the cooler air, and then again later in the afternoon. The training sessions are known for being quite intense, so a proper warm down will be necessary at the end of each session. You will have free time during the day to explore the local area, and make use of the local swimming pool to relieve tired muscles
