What is the big deal about Training Muay Thai in Thailand?

So you were next to the lockers today, listening to Mike and Chad, comparing stories about training in Phuket. Sure, it sounded amazing, but seriously, what’s the big deal about training Muay Thai in Thailand? You could get the same results by taking a couple Muay Thai or MMA privates over a few months, right?

Take a look at your hometown. Do TV channels in your city broadcast Muay Thai fights every day? How many people in your gym have been training Muay Thai since the age of five? Is there anywhere you can get away from the “distractions” of your life to focus on training? Will you be able to get away from the draw backs of Western life (diet, distractions of technology, a sedentary lifestyle)? Is there anywhere you can train eight hours a day?

I didn’t think so. Train in Thailand and it’s almost guaranteed that you’ll walk away with…

…a deeper understanding of Muay Thai

…a faster, cleaner, more technical game

…better dietary habits and the tools to continue them once you get home

…increased overall health

…relationships with fighters from all over the world

Let’s be straight up. There are some aspects of your game that you can only develop with intense focus and isolation. Come to Thailand to train and find out how far you can go.
