What Camps Have Offered The Best Trainers?
In your experience what camps offered the best trainers and pad holders? I'm in a funny situation. On one hand I want to visit gyms like Sitboonmee or Jitmungnon because of the fighters they produce but on the other hand I am thinking about sticking with a foreigner friendly camp where I wont be seen as secondary and will get more attention.
Is training beside and clinching/sparring top Thai fighters more important then a decent trainer who is passionate about training you? When someone on hear said that some days you dont get time on the pads at sitboonmee I was kind of put off. That's where I was planning to go but now I am not sure.
So my second question is from people who have visited both Thai fighter camps and foreigner friendly camps which did you benefit the most from? And what camp has been the best overall?
I don't know why but this time around I am really having a hard time finding a camp. Its either one camp has too many foreigners, one is too expensive and the other 60% haven't got back to me.
I am pretty sure even though you dont get as much padwork in sitboonmee as compared to other camps, they will not hesistate to correct your basic if they spot your mistake. Some camps might give u padwork all day long bt not correct your mistake. the choice is yours.
@jiemisii. That's true. Some gyms just hold the pads for 5 rounds and thats it. With me thou correcting my technique is not as important as it was say when I started training 9 years ago. What's more important is enough pad rounds, sparring/clinching and just an overall interest from the trainers. If I slack I want to know someones going to push me.
Also I just found out there is another foreigner there so not sure how much difference that will make since its already a small gym with important fighters. How many rooms are there?
2 big rooms in the owner house. You could have padwork, but its from the fighter. If you wan padwork from pele, maybe a round or 2 only.
