Muay Thai Boxing Training Camp | 1 - 3 Months
Muay Thai Boxing Training on Koh Tao Thailand: Overview
Recognized as one of the best, most demanding martial arts in the world, Muay Thai has been fully embraced in the West for decades as a great way of training to improve movement, striking power, work rate, accuracy and conditioning.
Fighters from different disciplines have long been coming to Thailand to learn the secrets of this truly amazing art form.
A glance on television during UFC and WEC events reveals that virtually everyone in the fight game has made it a priority to study this discipline.
Whether you’re looking to fine-tune your skills for another sport or you simply want to sculpt your body and get into the absolute BEST shape of your life, the Monsoon Gym and Muay Thai camp will deliver.
Daily Schedule of Koh Tao Muay Thai Boxing Camp
Our tuition starts everyday, bright and early, with a run to get the blood flowing and open your lungs for a demanding day. The runs include short sprints both up/down hill to improve footwork and breathing control.
This is followed by a few minutes of shadow-boxing or skipping rope to again help with your footwork.
Back at the camp you’ll spend a bit of time doing some bag work- punching, kicking, kneeing and elbow strikes to further increase your stamina and strike force.
Now that you’re warmed up, you’ll go one-on-one with one of our trainers who’ll be in full pads (shin, stomach, hand) and you’ll get a chance to work more on technique, reaction time, stances, and get a much better idea of distances and range-finding.
You’ll do a number of 3-5 minute rounds with the trainers depending on your conditioning and then finish off the session with sit-ups to strengthen the core and shadow–boxing and stretching to prevent injury.
For those training for fights, further running and sparring will be incorporated into the schedule.
You’ll also be encouraged to do some weight training in our fully acquitted Monsoon Gym. One day a week will be an off day where you are encouraged to relax, recover, and enjoy the fantastic beaches of Koh Tao.
Special Events: Muay Thai Boxing Fight Night on Koh Tao
At our own boxing stadium we stage fight nights usually twice a month with up to 8 fights each night.
Our Muay Thai Boxing fighters not only come from the neighboring islands of Samui, and Phangan, but also from throughout the country, and we host MANY international fights.
To date, we’ve had guest fighters- both men and women- from Argentina, Canada, Croatia, Denmark, England, France, Germany, Holland, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Norway, South Africa, Spain, Sweden and the Philippines.
It makes for a great night out of socializing, having a few beers, placing some bets if you like and of course, watching the amazing skills showcased by our fighters!
If you get the urge to jump in the ring and test yourself against a real opponent, we would be happy to arrange a fight for you when you’ve completed your training at the Monsoon Gym and Muay Thai camp and we deem that you are ready.
