Online Private Training from Thailand - Recommendations?

Recommended Posts

Hey ho, so I had this thought and was thinking of sending a probably yet another private message to Sylvie asking 'hey can you recommend...etc.etc." but I learned through the home work out videos - use the forum! Anyways, I wonder if Sylvie, Kevin or anyone else would know of something like a PT online with some of the krus in Thailand? I imagine it would have to be someone speaking English as otherwise it would be the most random zoom or skype work out ( i did giggle to myself trying to imagine how that would work haha). Anyways any ideas are very welcome, I know it is not ideal, but I am doing all the drills and shadow and tbh i am not even sure if i am doing things correctly and getting quite bored and unmotivated by this solo routine. Thank you all! Marija

Thanks for watching the live streams and for using the forum, for exactly what it's for!

There are a few places offering online training. Por Promin in Hua Hin has been offering this and I imagine they'd have a pretty good method going by now; they have English, are used to training all levels, and already have the sessions going. Here's their FB: https://web.facebook.com/porpromin/

Santai has said that their offering PT, as well as free technique live videos on their FB periodically. Here's their FB, and you can ask about privates. I recommend Kru Ten. https://web.facebook.com/muay.thai.gym/

Erm so now it will probs have to wait at least a week or so - if not muay thai i manage to injury myself in other ways. Came off my bike and injured my shoulder so probs will have to wait till it gets better. The idea of one arm internet PT from Thailand sounds a bit too crazy even for my experimental standards haha but I’ll update when I do it!

Kru Bird provides online training from Phuket. He seems like he knows his business, and has over 100 fights himself. Maybe check him out and see if it's something you want to try? 

 

EDIT: A friend and I just had a session with him this weekend. It worked out very well, and was a good time. The technology worked, too, which I was surprised about.. We trained in my friend's small living room and it was enough. We did mostly different combos and such, and will do this again, for sure!

So my update too: I did online training with Santai gym with Kru Ten a few weeks back. Think it was quite good. Obviously far from what a real-life PT would be, but it worked to fix a few things that I was doing wrong for quite a while (like a knee) and the movement felt so much better and made so much more sense. I am not sure how would it work if someone had more experience, i guess you could work on combos or something.

Tho not gonna lie at moments the combination of poor internet connection, different languages and a dodgy shoulder were pretty funny, like me yelling from other end of the room PUSH UPS? NO PUSH UPS 😅

I definitely think if you can get someone else to share a PT, i mean be two people in a room, it would be really really good.

    • Now you don’t need to quarantine to enter Thailand looking to go by end of this year/ early next for 1 month. Can anyone help with gyms id like the gym to have -proper thai training with good trainers not all touristy but not super old school.  -Thai and western fighters so trainers can work with westerners but it’s not full of tourists -opportunity to fight at end of month  -accom in gym or very close  -dosnt need to be super clinch focused but good clinch as thats my weakness  -good trainers with good instruction for westerners  -preferably in Chang Mai as it’s the cheapest and on a budget -don’t need all fancy equipment and stuff  I like the look of santai Muay Thai, hongthong and boon lanna if anyone has experience with them? Thanks for anyone who can help. 
    • Question for Sylvie! When you made the transition to Southpaw….I’m assuming all of your orthodox combos and strikes had a natural flow to them because that was first for you. ..Im wondering how long it took to get a that natural flow in your Southpaw stance?  Also,  if you have any tips on the transition other constant practice in southpaw. Either way thank you for reading this. Have an amazing day!    - Mike C. 
    • I've read that internal and external martial artists are striving for the same goal, just in opposite directions. The external artists train the form and refine the technique, strengthening the body from the outside in. The internal martial artists trains the structure and refines the technique, strengthening the body from the inside. In that way, external arts would be working with colors and the internal artists would be working with line drawings. Both can make a complete picture but both together would be a powerful combination. I'm a stroke survivor that's always been into fitness. I've also had the unfortunate luck of being in a physical altercation while in my current condition. At the the time, i was able to perform optimally. Thankfully he was drunk and we weren't alone but i still had to defend myself initially. Every since then, I've been researching the most effective combination of martial arts to end fights and improve my balance. You ever meet me in real life, you'll learn that I'm a massive nerd. However, I'm also into fitness, so forming this theory has been very interesting. Bruce Lee's approach to the philosophy of the creation of Jeet kune Do was my place to start. However, his mother art was wingchun and he used methods from other systems to make a more comprehensive system, creating the foundation for MMA. The main 2 styles I found were Muay Thai and Yiquan.  I feel Muay Thai is excellent in the sense of a comprehensive striking system and Yiquan requires you to slow your movements down to fine tune the little balance issues i have. I understand i have no real fight experience and that has been an obstacle but i have experience in physical training and am ready to take advice and criticism

    • I can recommend you to visit Kst Muay Thai.. For the Time Being, you can learn the fundamentals of Muay Thai by yourself. That could be done though reading Blogs!! Like Muay Thai Citizen, Fight Supplies, Team Elite etc. But combat sports must be performed with another person. You can develop negative habits that are tough to break if you don't have someone to correct your form. Training with an instructor is by far the most effective way to learn.
    • Hello everybody =) I'm a muaythai researcher from Brazil. I'm looking for information about the best current muaythai trainers in Thailand, unfortunately I didn't find any consistent information.   Can someone help me?
    • I think what's more important than scent is how effective they actually are. In my experience once gloves smell bad, there's no going back. I'd love to find a solution that works.
    • Exceptional display of courage.  Stood up until the end.
    • Hey, I'm familiar with the struggles with partnering with beginners.  Once is a while is fine, but you don't get as much out of the class as you would with someone at your level.  Here are things I've done in the past: 1) ask the advanced women to come help me train (either in class of outside of class)  2) invite the women that are less advanced, but seem keen on learning, to train with me outside of class, say casually for just techniques (I specified no sparring).  Also give them opportunity to suggest what to work on during those times you train together.  The 2nd one was very hard initially for me, as it involved setting up this new group training.   Our gym had ladies' sparring before that ended in disasters, so I tried to steer us away from that.  Also talking to be ppl I don't know and managing multiple new relationships makes me very anxious and mentally exhausted. But that investment of energy pays dividends -  I started this a few years ago and I have a few women from there that developed a lot since and partners when me in class consistently.  We train together outside of class also.  We even met up in parks to train when the gym got shutdown during covid (but small groups outdoor gatherings were allowed).
