Where is the best place to buy muay thai gear

Recommended Posts

So my question is, is it better to buy gears in Bangkok or Pattaya?

I heard Action Zone is pretty good in Bangkok, any other address in Bangkok or Pattaya that would be better than Action Zone?

I need to buy quite a bit of gear that I'll send back to Canada so a place that have good choices, good prices and that will give me discount for buying a lot of gear at the same time?

Super Export Shop had pretty good prices and selection for Fairtex gear. I also got Fairtex shinguards from Muay Thai Mall for a decent price, and they seem to be the only store open on a Sunday (it's near Channel 7 Stadium too).

If you're after a good Thai brand, Thai Smai has nice quality gloves in a wide range of colours. Also much cheaper than your usual Fairfax, Top King, etc

Boon Sport Shop is also worth checking out. They are my favourite for shorts and shirts. 

I don't have any experience buying in bulk though. I would recommend contacting the store/s ahead of time as the multi-brand stores may not have everything you want in stock and they can give you prices over the phone.

I am a fan of Action Zone and their sharp prices! :D
But if you want something specific it is better to email them as soon as you know what you would like and mostly they can fix it.

Also a big fan of the Boon retro style shorts.   :woot:  :wub:

    • Hahaha that's such a Thai answer.... I should have re-worded that. I would be curious to know if there is a base to this from a documented style or if it is truly unique. Like some of Karuhat's stuff is truly "Karuhat style" (the way he folds elbows in while climbing people), but it's also based in very old technique that he may not have been consciously drawing from.
    • 99% sure it is just his own. He told us he pretty much invented his Muay Thai after success with a single kind of elbow. People started just waiting for it, because his reputation grew, so he had to invent a complete Muay Thai to make elbows possible from any position. I'm sure he would say that he just created it. Karuhat tells us the same thing about his footwork. Nobody taught him, it came from nowhere.
    • Thank you so much for your insight Jonny and Emma. It seems that Jaroonsak might not be feasible for me, because they only offer evening training - and I'll be working then. But I'll definitely check out Mankong Phranai Gym. Will give you all a report, once I train there, I'm sure that other people could benefit from knowing about these 'lesser known gyms.:)

    • Hi Hanna, I think it is important to point out that the UFC is essentially a company, and its goal is to generate revenue. I've been a UFC fan for years but nowadays, it is all about money and promotion. The only fighter I follow is Francis Ngannou for his story.  Now, to get more into detail about your question on agressivness and style: Muay Thai, in my opinion, is agressive but in the dominant sense. It is a way to put pressure on your opponent and also get the narrative of the fight in your favour. However, in the UFC or MMA in general, fighters usually are much more agressive as the point system is totally different. Judges usually favour the one with more hits or more initiative.  I also think the UFC is much less respectfull than traditionnal Muay Thai fights, and all that may make it look like it is more violent. 
    • So many fighters signed and so many fight cards through the year, means the good fights are way more spaced out now than ever before. So you'll get a good headlining match up and the rest you could take it or leave it. Back in the day there weren't as many cards so their business model was to stack the deck so the whole main event and even prelims were solid, and the thing would sell. 
    • UFC has just gone to shit lol. There is no debating it. They are going the boxing route now and it's gonna end poorly. It is funny to see how bad some of their "muay thai" strikers are. ONE is the only promotion to have legit strikers on their roster in MMA. Ever since the "WME" era the UFC has been going steadily downhill. No one ever believed their fighters were the best in the world in any on particular aspect, but the idea was who could nullify or outperform different aspects of the complete game. Now it's just all show and flash. Competition has gone out the window. 
    • The grandiosity of the spectacle gets to me. The real or imagined animosity between fighters gets to me. The lack of humbleness some of the fighter have about them gets to me. Basically everything about it gets to me.
    • That's actually an expression I have used myself as well, "too American". I'm not saying "American" is a bad thing in and off itself, its just this kind of.... totally overdone, over the top "Americanism" that I hate. I do actually sometimes watch MMA on different promotions where for me it feels more like ... I don't know... more like a martial arts event instead of a circus show. This "style" of presentation seems to be wanted by the powers that be in the UFC, people like Connor play into this kinda thing very well of course and Dana White seems to totally be in support of stuff like that so I don't see it changing anytime soon. Like in this press conference I mentioned, Dana wasn't even TRYING to look unbiased or serious but instead totally played into and supported Connor's clowning around. I mean it's ok to still be a funny guy even if you're in charge of some kind of event. Like my boss ( a few levels up, not direct boss) at work who will sometimes crack a joke when asked something during a presentation before he gets back to serious and actually answers but that kinda stuff happening in the UFC I just can't stand and can't take seriously.
