I've know I've heard about MT training in Chiang Mai but it's been so long.....

I have heard of a place that teaches Muay Thai Sangha in Chiang Mai and I believe this is the link for the school.

ancientmuaythai.com

It's not tooo bad...for a month it's B8,000. Didn't get a chance to sniff out any reviews.

Chay Yai is the other one I've read about and seems to get good reviews.

If you're looking for something alittle less commercial, the better thing to do is get there and suss it out. There are def places there that have no website but offer solid training. Not sure if you have that kind of time, but maybe you do. Good luck smile.gif

hello there
I live in Northern Thailand and study since 5 month now Muay Thai in Thai Muay Thai Gym.
It's the best thing I have ever done even sometimes it really hurts.
The training gives me balance and power. No student is left alone like in many of the bigger gyms. They train you if you want to fight but also if you want to do it for other reasons.
Training is every day available.
I started it out of curiosity and just stayed.
The gym where I practice is small and not overcrowded.
After the training we often eat together and when one of the boxers is fighting the whole team joins for support. Last new years eve we went all together to Chiang Rai for a match.

That sounds like a good experience. Is there a set time for the training or do you stay as long as you feel you need to? is it costly or reasonably priced for the training?

There is no time frame it's complete up to you how much time you have and how you can cope with the training.
Some students come once per day, some like me 2 times.
The price for one unit (2-3 hours) is 400 Baht
For one week 2000 Baht (you can can one or 2 times per day) and for one month 7000 Baht (you can train even 2 times 7 days per week if you feel up to it.
For accomodation there are cheap rooms (2000 Baht/ month) and of course more price;ly for the big hotels. Food is cheap (great Thai food) and often we eat together after the training.
Hope this helps you
otherwise feel free to write to me any time
