Muay Thai Training in Phuket

Muay Thai Training in Phuket

Phuket has for many years been one of the most popular destinations in Thailand to learn and train in the sport of Muay Thai, or Thai Boxing, but in recent years the explosion in the popularity of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) around the world has meant that more and more people are turning to Muay Thai as this now forms an integral part of MMA.

Many budding world champions come to Phuket to learn their skills from past World Champions in the sport of Muay Thai spending weeks or months in the training camps.

There are over 30 different training camps of different sizes and standards each offering something different from the other. Most of the better camps are located in the south of Phuket in the Rawai Naiharn area although there are also some very good camps around Patong but these have more distractions than the others because of what else Patong has to offer.

Muay Thai is not just about fighting but also a great way of getting fit and helping those that want to undergo a weight loss regime. It is not all about building muscle but also about stretching the body to be able to do more and more different things.

If you are interested in learning Muay Thai or want to extend your knowledge of the sport it is advised that you visit or contact various centers to see if they cater for your needs and abilities and where possible speak to some of the people currently training there before you decide which to choose.
