Charn Chai Gym in Pai - Any Reviews or Experiences?

Recommended Posts

Border Pai Muay Thai is a new gym in Pai that might be worth checking out. It's really small, but the trainer Suk is pretty good. Hahaha just don't loan him any money. I trained with him for about 3-4 months at Toddy's and he was quite good but he got in trouble for drinking too much. Allegedly he stopped drinking, but I haven't seen or talked with him in a couple of years. I believe he is from the Meenayothin gym originally.

I have been to Charnchai two times; for 6 weeks and 6 months. It has a very friendly atmosphere, and a very physically intense training program even for the non-fighting/casual falangs. Mr Bee (the owner) personally helps even the beginners with their technique for standing, throwing kicks etc...

They have numerous active Thai's at the gym who train and hold pads, fight in local stadiums and festivals. 

Nice place to run (lots of mountains and rivers around), good training and can organise fights ranging from local low-level fights to televised shows in Bangkok and in the big Bangkok stadiums.

They are extremely accommodating of women, both Thai and foreign, and the women I train alongside have noted that it is significantly better to other gyms they have trained at with regards to how seriously the trainers put effort into your technique and how well they treat you.

Hope this helps :)

    • More Resources and Video Discussion on Ruup   Here is Sylvie's video discussion of what Ruup is, and how to train it in a Technique Vlog (you can get the full length technique vlog as a patron: Training Ruup :     Here is a video compilation of the discussion of the Thai principle of Ruup:  
    • I love dutch kickboxing and muay thai. I think these days a lot techniques are mixed together. Both have unique techniques which are useful. Maybe kickboxing cant be called muay thai cuz it doesnt have the elbows/knees and clinch. But I'd say if you enjoy training at your gym then keep training and watch a lot of thai vids too to keep your clinch skills high. Also lots of elbow and knee sparring. 
    • I went today. From Bearing BTS it's about 5 min motorbike ride. The two names are because it's a collaboration. Absolutely great training with people working there speaking English as well. 300 for one session and you get 3 pad rounds, clinch and sparring. Lovely atmosphere: 10/10 recommend. Just write to them on instagram through the link Emma posted. Shops and food close by.

    • Thank you 🙂 I asked my coach too ( Ganyao Arunleung) and in his golden age fashion said it doesn't matter, it's the heart that matters 😄😂💖 I told him Muay Thai is the love of my life (just don't tell my husband 😉😄). I think I'll put the amulet on the rim right before the tail comes together. Or I'll wear it with a necklace and find another for the Mongkol.  It will all come together as meant to be at the right time 🤞🏻
    • I train at Pacific Ring Sports on Telegraph and 40th. What about you?
    • Amulets can go anywhere on the rim of the Mongkol, the only place I don't see them is on the tail. The hair can be put inside fabric and tied on to the Mongkol, or put in a fabric that gets integrated into the wrapping.  My mom's skirt was cut into long strips and twosted very tightly, then wrapped around the tube that's the shape of the Mongkol and glued into place.
    • This is so cool.  Where do you train? I leave on the Bay Area.  
    • Hello,  I made my own Mongkol as the gym I train at doesn't have a gym Mongkol to dress fighters with. I also bought an amulet that, long story short, feels like it was meant to be, but its bigger than I expected and covers my whole forehead ( not so much vanity concern, but more size ratio awkwardness) if placed in the front center of the Mongkol.   Is it allowed to place the amulet at the back or side of the Mongkol? Also I have some of my sons hair to put on my Mongkol,  but don't know where it's supposed to be placed as well if anyone knows.  Lastly, I saw Silvies YouTube on how she had her mom's skirt made into her monkol and it had a little axe amulet. I have a fabric I wore back when traveling, and now as a mom and muay thai fighter, I want to make it into a Mongkol for my son (whether he continues with the sport again the future or not, at least he would have a monkol made from his mom's fabric). Is there any way to see a tutorial on how they actually made the fabric Mongkol (it looked twisted in a certain way but I don't know how).  I have an arrow amulet I want to add on either my or my son's Mongkols, but again the sizing of it in comparison to the actual Mongkol seem uneven.  Anyways , any answers would be greatly appreciated.
