I know these are stressful decisions, and you feel like you don't have enough information to choose wisely, but the truth is that its very hard to get real time accuracy of what is happening in a gym, and even if you did, the source of that report could very well be someone very unlike you, either in fighter needs, or personality.

The truth is, whatever you choose you'll be having experiences unlike anything you'll have outside of Thailand. Kem's going to give you an up-on-the-mountain, beautiful gym, hard training which may feel kind of isolated. He's an incredibly good teacher, and privates with him would be so good (as with the other 3). Its isolation can cut both ways. It can give you a once-in-lifetime experience, especially if you don't know if you'll return to Thailand again. If you are very unsure, then going to Chiang Mai may be best because you won't be stuck where you are. You could go to Thailand's gym for a day or two, and then go to Manop's gym for a day or two, and FEEL which one fits you, and then dive into that one (or, even have the option of other Chiang Mai gyms). Thailand's gym is going to be much more of a local fighters gym, with Thai boys, Manop's is going to be more western, but still small and personal, with a great technical teacher. But, if you go to Chiang Mai you'll have the city to visit and motorbike around, which might really add to your experience. In the end though nobody can really take away the risk of the choice.

    • One of the simplest ways to increase the pace of your kicks is to use ankle weights. They also increase the potency of your kicks. The benefits of using ankle weights during Muay Thai training are minimal. You just do any kicking drill you choose while wearing the weights around your legs. Your kicking strength and quickness can be increased even by shadowboxing with ankle weights. Your legs get heavier as a result of the ankle weight, so you must use more force to move at your usual speed. When you remove the ankle weights after being accustomed to throwing kicks while carrying that extra weight, your kicks will go much more quickly.

    • Chalamdam (red) took a decision win and title belt against Pitakpetch (blue) today at Channel 7. Here are the highlights.ย  Pitakpetch's gym owner said after the fight the he will follow suit with several other gyms who have withdrawn their fighters from Giatpetch promotions due to bad judging. Comments on all the various shares seem to agree with the sentiment that this promoter is unfair.ย  What do you see? https://fb.watch/fD2_PfhFDE/

    • And re the blessing of the mongkol...ย  In lack of true thai monks, you can try to get a blessing from someoene else creditable. Some person you held in great estime, whom is also a person with a feeling for spirituality.ย  Your grandma or grandda if they are still alive, otherwise your momma or dad... Or someone else whom you have connection with and do trust. ย  ps.ย  You did made your mongkol yourself.ย  But the same advice for all whom did buy their mongkol in a common shop. ย  Such is my belief.
    • Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚ I asked my coach too ( Ganyao Arunleung) and in his golden age fashion said it doesn't matter, it's the heart that matters ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ’– I told him Muay Thai is the love of my life (just don't tell my husband ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜„). 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.ย  It will all come together as meant to be at the right time ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿป
    • 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.ย  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.
