Picking The Next Camp To Train?
Whats up everyone. So my flights booked for April and not coming back until July. Not really to bothered about sparring/clinching partners for my first month. Just looking for a quite camp with good pad holders.
Originally I was going to Sitboonmee. I still may go there but to be honest I cant be asked to travel all the way up to Buriram lol. So I have sorted everything at sitboonmee as a back up plan but just wanted to know if anyone has any other recommendations within Bangkok for now. Want to keep the first month simple.
I messaged Saenchai's gym and they had a great offer. 20,000baht a month for training, food and accommodation but then I saw the amount of foreigners and I got a bit put off. The way Saenchai had all of them in a circle learning kicks seems like cheesy training you get back home. But not surprised its overcrowded this is Saenchai we are talking about. Kiatphontip is another option not sure if their crowded at the moment (let me know Rob).
I spoke to the head of Rachanon gym also. Rachanon seems alright. They have a few good fighters training there but most importantly a lot of foreigners dont know much about that gym which is good for my first month. Second month I don't mind but for the first I just want some solid padholder time and attention to build my fitness back up and etc. Also if anyone has any info on jitmuangnon let me know. Not for training but to visit.
So any recommendations throw them all at me. I want to visit as many camps as possible. I don't mind buriram if you have a good camp you can recommend but definitely not Phuket or Chang Mai.
100 Hours @ 1 Gym better then 1 Hour @ 100 gyms
teeded99 ?- don't think anyone goes there at all.
You could go just north of bangkok such as nakhon sawan and phetchabun.
They have a boxing coach too..always wanted to go to this place
Lots of high quality Thai fighters
Staff includes a western boxing coach
Good attention to detail
Lots of clinching
Separation between westerners and Thais
The gym rooms are pretty basic; I had an air-conditioned room which had a large refrigerator and a couple of beds. Prepare to be woken up by cockerels in the early hours.
The food package here is awesome. Lots of food and lots of variety. The food is bought from the shop/restaurant opposite the gym and is really nice. The foreign visitors eat at a table in the gym, while the Thais sit together on the gym floor.
One session: 300 baht
Two sessions (daily) 500 baht
Two sessions, shared A/C room + two meals: 900 baht per day, 6,300 baht per week.
Two sessions. private A/C room + two meals: 1,400 baht per day, 8,000 baht per week.
The gym is located on the premises of Kasetsart University on a quiet soi. There is a couple of 7/11s within walking distance.

took too long so cant edit my post!..have you heard of this place? Click the link for full review into training if your intrested..i have always wanted to go to this place..boxing coach to work on your hands plus lots of clinching and some big Thai s to clinch with. Lots of running too! Lol
@vlad very very true.
@Blake How do I contact teeded 99
@funnyman Yeah I have heard lots about Meenoythin but its a bit pricey
How do you lot feel about me just showing up in Bangkok with a paper of camp addresses?
There are some camps I want to go to but have no way of communicating with them via email or whatever. I am usually the person who likes to sort everything at least a few days before I leave but since I have been to Thailand a few times now I might try something different. Sort out a driver online that can specifically drive me around for several hours to look at a variety of gyms. Give him the addresses to look at before hand so he knows where to go before I get there. I just don't trust getting in one of those taxis at the airport. They always deliberately get lost whilst leaving that meter on lol. I don't mind paying a little extra for a driver. English speaking driver would be even better.
I discovered the best gyms I liked were the ones I found by accident without websites etc.
go on an adventure man !
Sit nungubon in ubon.
Great Little gym.
It was my little adventure. 😊
Tedeed 99 is closed. All there boxers have been training at F.A. Group for the past month or so. If you want a gym in BKK with little foreigners you could try Lukbanyai. I went there and the training was good with good pad holders(all missing there teeth) and they gave good western boxing instruction, too. I saw Norasing hitting the mitts and looking sharp. Thing is, it's the most un fucking clean gym I have ever seen. 96 Peenang is cleaner than this place and I thought that would be impossible. I trained twice and stopped going because of it, but hey, if you don't mind that, give it a try. It's tucked away in a Thai neighborhood not too easy to find, another reason there's probably not a lot of foreigners there. When I went it was just me and one other French guy. They had about 8-10 Thai boys fighting there and 3 pad holders. It was cheap, too. Training twice a day for a month was only $8,000 baht.
Does anyone know if Por Pramuk gym is still open?
And also has anyone been to RSM Academy? lol I know that doesn't seem like a serious gym but that comes down to how serious you are. From what I see they have good trainers one of which was Buakaws old trainer. They have great facilities and the price doesn't seem all that bad. Its just finding sparring and clinching partners which I'm sure I can do with the trainers.
