How to train in Muay Thai


For some people, simply watching an exciting Muay Thai bout is not enough. They want to learn some of the amazing moves for themselves get their bodies in the best condition of their lives. Some are even tempted to experience the adrenalin pumping action of a fight in the ring.  This is why there are now so many Muay Thai schools opening up worldwide. But for most Thai boxing devotees, the ultimate place to study the art is in Thailand itself, and they come here in their thousands to undergo vigorous training sessions and learn from Thai masters. While here, they also get to enjoy other aspects of the kingdom’s culture.

Such training camps often have Rajadamnern and Lumpinee Stadium champions as trainers, and the schedule can be gruelling, with training and exercise sessions that push you to the limit. But the foreign Muay Thai fighters that undergo this experience often claim their months or weeks training were the most rewarding weeks of their lives, and they leave the kingdom in tip top physical condition and with a greater appreciation of Thailand and its people.
