Khongsittha Muay Thai Gym Tour

Thailand Training Camp – Khongsittha Gym and Accommodations

Experiencing an authentic Muay Thai training camp is often associated with sleeping on the floor next to other fighters, hitting torn up heavy bags and roughing it while training twice a day… but it doesn’t have to be.

I’m not gonna lie, when I first decided to hold the Nak Muay Nation Training Camp at Khongsittha Gym in Bangkok, I wasn’t sure what to expect in terms of the quality of training facilities and accommodations.

I even talked to a handful of other students who expected it to be the rugged, old school type of living/training that we see in movies like Bloodsport… needless to say, we were pleasantly surprised by how nice, clean and top quality everything was at Khongsittha!

The Gym

The gyms facilities were top quality. It basically had everything you could ask for:
  • khongsittha muay thai thailand2 full-sized rings
  • A variety of heavy bags (banana, tear drop and others)
  • Quality pads for the trainers
  • A surplus of space to fit 20 Nak Muay comfortably
  • A loaded strength and conditioning area with medicine balls, kettle bells, battle ropes, weights and everything else you could need.
  • An ice bath for post-training recovery
  • Pristinely clean locker rooms and showers

The Accommodations

In old school Thailand training camps you’d often sleep in a small room on the floor next to other fighters with only having a fan to cool you down. Even though that sounds pretty hardcore and I envy anyone who has the mental toughness to go through that type of living situation… that’s not what I’m trying to do.
We were set up in affordable, luxurious hotel rooms that came with:
  • Queen size bed
  • Air conditioning
  • Mini-fridge
  • Large wardrobe and plenty of storage space
  • Shower and a toilet you can actually flush toilet paper down (I know it sounds crazy, but almost all the other places I’ve stayed you have to put your shitty toilet paper in the garbage due to plumbing issues.)
  • TV 
  • Chairs, table and even a vanity (fancy)
  • A balcony to hang your nasty hand wraps and Thai shorts

The Surrounding Area

Being in a non-touristy area can be intimidating, but there’s no better way to experience authentic Thai culture than being the only farang around. You can find all your basic needs within either walking distance or a short taxi ride:
  • 8172_10206898537876713_2527795966078569763_nThai restaurants, food stands and night markets
  • Western style restaurants with comfort food that’ll remind you of home
  • Massage parlors to relax, unwind and recover for your next session
  • Spas, saunas and swimming pools
  • Supermarkets and convenience stores (7/11, Big C etc.)
  • Shopping centers and western-style malls with movie theaters
  • Night clubs and bars for those who like to train hard/party hard
