(Muay Thai Camp) A Review Of Rawai Supa Muay Thai By Minr
Been doing Muay Thai on and off Two years in total, Intermediate level I would say, second time to Thailand. British Passport - 30 days free 2 weeks Private session last time, liked the facilities and organization. Your usual Phuket group structure.
Warm up / Hands Wrapping
Shadowboxing 5 minutes
3-5 rounds of either padwork with a trainer or bagwork
3-5 rounds of whatever you did not do the previous rounds
Mon-wed - Clinching
Thursday - Wai Kru
Friday - Western Boxing sparring
Saturday is a free day so basically it is picked at random, we did Wai Kru again
Problem was when I went there was a german and russian group of tourists so the classes were up to about 45 on my first day and then 40-30 everyday after, credit to the gym they had enough trainers to cope with everyone but as you can imagine, apart from padwork we weren't really supervised or corrected or given time or anything, only during the pads.
There was surprisingly enough trainers to cope with all 40 when it came to pads and there was enough space to accomodate everybody. Everyday pretty much you was in a different ring with a differen trainer, what I realised where all trainers were very technical correcting everything in everyone which is way way better than being allowed to do combinations with no good for, the negative to this is everyday I was being told to do something different when the previous day I was told to lean back during a kick next time I was told not to, another time I was told not to bend my leg during a kick and another time surprsingly told to bend my leg.
As you can see there are benefits and drawbacks but I would prefer to be corrected over not being due to the fact it shows trainers care and are helping you.
Learned a few good tricks and techniques too to make things easier. Nearly all minus 3 trainers had good English levels, it was never a problem some were extremely fluent such as Wod and Keh and Ton and Sid.
Trainers very friendly and talkative too all of them asked where I came from and what I did back home and how long I am out for and some spoke about other things, they were all up for a laugh training was made much easier because they all spoke English. Best facilities I have come across at a Muay Thai camp, 8 teardrop bags, 4 long slim bags, at least 15 punch bags, 4 uppercut wall bags, 4 big rings, mated floors everywhere, extremely clean and a nice office which sells drinks, equipment, merchandise and scooters. I paid for a weeks training 2x a day I only went once a day though.
Good thing about this club they have offers of weekly, daily and monthly for once a day too.
1,600 for 1 a day a week, 6,000 for 1 a day a month. I didn't go or watch Nothing Nothing I didn't stay there I saw a few bungalows though and was told Nothing I didn't take the option Everywhere you go in Rawai there is food and great for me there was halal shops everywhere Loads of bars and nightclubs, massage parlours, restaurants. Especially on the road of the camp on either side. Beaches, tour touts, hotels, restaurants, massage parlours, bars, clubs. Loved it, problem was the steel roof on top is so close to the ground it makes it even hotter, when I was there it was extremely overpopulated with tour groups so we didn't get the attention I came for and I didn't get as good as I wanted too, I did learn my fair share though thanks to the technical style of the trainers there were atleast 15 of them which is a pretty big number of trainers!
Next time I will go for a session and see the numbers of the place however one thing I want to stress is it is a very friendly place, I met many people I still speak too and went out with that also adds to a better experience even though I went alone it goes a long way to show.
Thanks for the review mate. Honest and thorough. Well done!
been a few changes at this place it seems-anyone know whats going on?
Since when Hawkman?
The old Rawai MT moved to Khao Lak, didnt get a new landlease or something like that.
thats Rawai MT mate which used to be off the main road betwen Rawai and Chalong and as you rightly say is now up in Khao Lak (Lack of anything to do up there tbh)
no I am referring to rawai Supa Muay Thai on Rawai Beach a new-ish facility I guess which has been around since probably may 2014.....
i think its owned by the people who used to run Nai Harn boxing club or whatever it was
The one on the beach is Nongnapat. The old Rawai MT location is now Rawai Supa Muay Thai.
Never saw many people training at Nongnapat so not sure how well it does.
Just saw on FB that Supa's gym manager has just been let go so not sure what's going on there right now.
yeh thats what I'm saying about Ryan going.
the one on the beach is Nonapat ? shit. I'm a dick -youre right.
ok I dont even know where Supa is now...probably being taken over by Tenchu
Rawai MT moved to Khao Lak.
Rawai Supa MT is in the same place as the old Rawai MT.
Nongnapat MT is right on the beach, had a try when Nokweed Davy was there.
The location is really good.
They closed early this year, dont know why.
Maybe lowseason hit them hard. I was by and asked for prices for their rooms and they where really overpriced.
I saw an ad that it was up for sale or lease.
I didn't even know Ryan Chow was the manager tbh I saw him in his own office and he'd say 10 press ups 10 sit ups end of every round I didn't know much else though I just thought they were training there, but yeah saw his facebook he got let go, but anyone know why and if he was the manager who let him go in the first place?
yes I saw Rawai Khao Lak just before it was opening, back in sept 2012.
too many gyms in phuket. way too many.
Ryan was training and fighting there, he was at Kiatphontip before
Dear Guys, thanks for share the mood with us Rawai Supa Muay Thai. We are still here and goes on with well trainer and train. There will be some movement of manager level but overall remains. Hope we can support all of you here when a good chance. Cheers! Rawai Supa Muay Thai Team.
