Is it true that most of the thai guys sleep in the gyms, get up at 5 for a 15k run, train all day, have a fight in the evening and win, lose, knockout or not, they get up the next day and do it all again? That's crazy.
I've lived and trained in Thailand for over 9 months. You could get by on living on $1000 American a month if you don't go out and party too much. This includes training, motorbike, gas, food and modest accommodation. The training and lifestyle are worth more then the $1000 a month. If you haven't been, Go!
I trained at a couple of different camps in the south and the north. I would recommend Tiger Muay Thai if your looking to do Muay Thai and MMA. It's a larger camp which means you'll have plenty of good sparring partners. There's also Dragon Muay Thai down the street which is more personable and good for 1 on 1 training.
Hey! I'm from Singapore and I heard about Tiger Muay Thai School through a Muay Thai training camp organised by Magnum Nutraceuticals. Just wanna find out how the facilities and trainers are like at Tiger and whether its recommended for a beginner like myself. Thanks!
