A selection of muay Thai videos filmed at the muay Thai camps of Thailand.
The featured gyms are located all over Thailand and are ALL accessible to foreigners.
Here are a few tips on picking a gym to train at:
- Avoid paying upfront. Check the gym out for a few days before committing – you may not be getting the training you need there and want to leave. Avoid being tied down to a 3 month deal unless you’re 100% sure it’s the right gym for you. Everyone has different needs when it comes to muay Thai training, so don’t just base your opinion off a review you read on the internet.
- Beware of gym marketing. Gyms often make bold claims about how their trainers are ex-Lumpinee champions etc etc. Well, it’s probably true, but belts change hands a lot in Thailand and there are many different weight categories so pretty much EVERY gym has ex-Lumpinee champions working for them. Also, remember that a good fighter doesn’t necessarily make a good trainer.
- Variety is the spice of life. Try different gyms! How do you know that one gym you’re at is any good if you haven’t been to any others? Gyms are very different to western gyms and you won’t know what to judge a muay Thai camp on unless you’ve been to a few. Plus, exploring is fun 🙂

- Read the reviews. The muay Thai videos are helpful, but they don’t tell the whole story. Take a look at the muay Thai camp reviews section to gather more information on each camp, or just read up on a camp that you’re interested in.
