Tags: .  Muay Thai ,  Phuket


Muay Thai is Thailand's most popular martial art. Students from all over the world come to Thailand each year to learn the sport right from the source. In Phuket, there are numerous gyms that offer training in Muay Thai, and many of them offer month-long training programs for travellers. Training in these gyms gives you a chance to really get in shape and improve your skills with an intense course. Here's a look at a few of our favourites and how to make the most of your Muay Thai experience. 


Tiger Muay Thai & Mixed Martial Arts 

Tiger Muay Thai & Mixed Martial Arts offers Muay Thai training programs for students of all skill levels, from beginner to advanced. In addition to Muay Thai, the facility also provides training in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and mixed martial arts, letting you combine your Muay Thai skills with other martial arts you practise. The gym offers general fitness facilities as well, where you can build strength and endurance to help you achieve your Muay Thai goals. 


Sinbi Muay Thai Training Camp 

Sinbi Muay Thai Training Camp employs expert instructors in Muay Thai, many of whom have competed in the past on a national or international level. This is great for those who already have a solid background in Muay Thai and wish to take their skills to the next level. The gym offers courses for beginners as well, so you’ll can build a strong foundation in the force. The facility also hosts exhibition fights at arenas throughout the local area so you'll have a chance to see some expert Muay Thai fighters in action. 


AKA Thailand 

AKA Thailand is an offshoot of the brand's San Jose training outpost, bringing its training methods back to the original source. The Thailand gym is quite expansive, offering training not just in Muay Thai, but in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, mixed martial arts and general fitness conditioning. Novices and experienced fighters alike will enjoy taking advantage of the state-of-the-art facilities and equipment in their quest to improve their martial arts skills.


Training Tips 

When you attend a Muay Thai training camp, you'll be pushed to your physical limits as you train, so it helps to have a solid foundation of general fitness. Aim to step up your fitness efforts a bit in the weeks and months leading up to your Muay Thai holiday to ensure your body is prepared for the rigours of the training program. 


Throughout the training, always listen to your body and let the instructors know whenever you need a break. Although you do want to push yourself to improve your skills, you don't want to push so hard that you injure yourself, ruining the rest of your holiday. 


It is important to note that it can get quite humid in Thailand. Those who aren't used to this type of climate may be at greater risk for dehydration. Drink plenty of water throughout your stay, particularly when you are training hard. Your body will acclimate to the humidity after a week or so. 


Consider Other Accommodation Options 

Although many Muay Thai training camps provide accommodation for students in or near the gym, you may be more comfortable with long-term accommodation, like that offered by Rental for the Holidays. We have a wide range of apartment and condo rentals in Phuket. This type of accommodation gives you a lot more flexibility in terms of dining, sightseeing and other activities.
