Private lessons

Recommended Posts

I am preparing my next trip to Thailand, on my first trip note that for a new student it is best to have private lessons, the problems is the price, in the gyms of Bkk around 1000 baths, if it is true that in Pukhet is something more Cheap, but Pukhet does not fit my plans.

What Gym and instructor would you recommend that the cost of private lessons be cheap and of quality? I do not care about the location.

Mixing in private lessons is a really good way to get concentrated instruction. Pi Daeng at Lanna in Chiang Mai I believe charges 500 baht per hour (as do the other instructors).

Next trip Chiang Mai...Lanna is first option.

Thanks.

Somewhat on topic: I did weekly private sessions for my first two years of training (in the USA) and they were extrenely helpful. I had to stop for financial reasons, but I've grabbed an individual session here and there as my budget allows. If you can afford them, I highly recommend working one-on-one with your trainer in addition to group classes.

After my first trip to Thailand is something that I have very clear, without private lessons the only thing I get is to improve my cardio.

The last two weeks what I did was a private lesson tomorrow and a group training in the afternoon, the problem cost.

In Sinbi was 500 Bhats the lesson, in Bkk and Samui 800/1000 bhats, day after day is a lot of money.

To say that in Bangkok the best option I found was in Elite Fight, with coach GAE, they were 1200 bhats, but included two sessions, private class, and use of facilities, including a pool, and at bkk it's great.

If you're able to commit to a certain length of time/frequency, "the cheapest private" cost I've found is @ Chacrit Muay Thai in Bangkok (6000 baht for 15 sessions which comes out to 400 baht/per). In fact, they ONLY do privates. It's kind of a unique situation as Muay Thai camps go, as you basically just show up and work with a trainer. They don't run classes. There are usually several trainers on hand and once you work with one, you're pretty sure to work with the same one as long as you let them know when you're coming next. Really good spot for a beginner for sure!!

500 baht for Daeng is a steal. Super nice guy, too! Be prepared to work HARD  :starwars:

    • This short essay series also confronts the aesthetics of Muay Thai, as a practice. Arguments that Westerners often come to train in Thailand as a matter of a project of aesthetics.      
    • I'm just going to respond generally here. I think at 70 kg your best bet would be a gym in Phuket, because I'm not sure it would be easy to get a fight with a Thai in other parts of the country? Perhaps there are really experienced Thai female fighters in Chiang Mai who fight at 60? At least in Phuket you'd have a better chance of being matched up against another larger westerner as well? We're a little blind on the state of fighting promotions in Chiang Mai and Phuket, in the COVID era, but it seems that Phuket is having more regular shows than Chiang Mai at this point. In terms of gym recommendations though, we really don't know Phuket gyms, personally. Phuket Fight Club is a very powerful gym in Phuket that features a lot of Brazilian fighters on shows, that seems to teach a very disciplined, kick-oriented, balanced attack (based on how they seem to fight). At least with the good sized gym like that you'd have suitable training partners, and they should be able to get you fights...but this is just a view from afar.
    • I'll be going to Thailand for 2-3 months next summer with my aim being training as much as possible and hopefully fighting. I've only had 2 fights, by the time I go I'm hoping to have had 3. One thing that I believe might cause me issues is the fact that I'm pretty big, 5'9 and walk around at about 70kg. In the west it's not that big of a problem, I always train with men because there is never any girl my size and I don't mind it at all, but I wonder if that could be an issue in Thailand. I'd also like to add that while I'm looking to develop my whole game and work on my weaknesses, I'm naturally a long range counter fighter and kicks have always been my best asset. I also have a kyokushin karate background. I've always been most comfortable keeping range and scoring on the back foot, no matter how hard my karate coaches have tried to change it, so I'm looking for a gym that would best suit my style.

    • 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.
