K-1 people I need some info on Thailand Muay Thai?

Ok Swick spent a lot of January training in Thailand working on his Muay Thai. Now I know they have sick Muay Thai in Thailand obviously but I was looking for some info on the guys Swick has been working with and if a huge improvement is possible.

The gym is Tiger Muay Thai I'm sure that's not much but I was wondering if it was a big gym or something.

Here's a list of their trainers I read it but it doesn't really make sense to me. I'm especially interested in how good Kru Robert is because I know Swick spent time with him.

Also MLS I know you are a big time boxing guy so I wondered if you think the fact Swick spent a lot of time working with Micheal Katsidis will help him?

Anything you guys can give me on this would be great

Alan Belcher has spent a bunch of time training in Thailand.

So yeah. Though I cant see it hurting him I wouldnt expect him to all of a sudden become the terminator or anything.

Oh and Katsidis loves to get punched in the face. Hes one of the worst defensive boxers Ive ever seen. Fun to watch, but loves to get punched in the face.

O no I'm not he's been going to Thailand for a long time I'm just curious who he's working with and what kind of talent level they have.

There are two top gyms in Thailand, and Tiger is one of them.

It's a very good gym. Robert isn't the best I've ever seen, but he's pretty good (despite the .500 record)

Alot of UFC guys have trained there; Fitch, Swick, Belcher.

There are definitely better gyms there than that one but it is still a solid camp. Kru Roberts is an ok trainer and I know he is their AKA affiliate but not to sure on that relationship. I don't know if that means he comes to AKA to help them or when AKA guys come there he is the ones that trains them. But if Swick can work with either of the Ajarn's that would benefit him a lot. But they have plenty of sold trainers there, Swick just needs to work with them and not just Roberts.

As far as working with Katsidis, not really a great thing. Katsidis is under the belief that blocking punches with your face is the best thing so as far as any type of defense, Swick won't learn much.

I know Swick did an MMA seminar for the gym. And I saw pictures of him training with Robert. IDK who else he trained with besides sparring with Katsidis and Robert but I'm sure with how long he was there he worked with a lot of guys.
