Often been in Thailand for Muay Thai Training but this place is unique. We came in a group of ten persons from Germany and lived in the camp. There is nothing to say than amazing !! Thank you Diana and Tuk for building up this wonderful place. All trainers did a great job and we will come back for sure.

As a complete novice at Muay Thai I was looked after for the first few days, the trainers are friendly and professional. The gym experience is lively and energetic. The camp felt safe and staff are friendly. I had a great experience here and recommend making the trip. The camp is 5km from the beach so you will need to rent a scooter (200 baht / €5 per day) or get a taxi. They train from beginner to fighting levels. You can book private sessions too. Really happy with my stay here and imagine that I will be back to train in the future. Food is good, good prices and there are some other restaurants nearby to switch up, recommend Tik restaurant & Happy Time. Couldn't fault the place atall.

It’s clear that Rawai Muay Thai have the best gym in Khao Lak. It’s by far the largest out of why we have seen, with more than 4 rings, but also the most structured.

I went to the Ilovekickboxing gym back in the USA, it was/is an excellent workout, but not focused as much on technique. When I got here, you practically have a 1x1 the entire time. Structure starts with a warm up jump roping for 5-10min, then 8 Laos around the gym jogging as a group. After that an instructor will lead a thorough group stretch to make sure everything is ready. They then assign you based on “new,” or “experienced.” New start off by learning each move while the experienced group breaks up into 2 groups, one group does bags while the other group is 1x1 in the ring while a Thai instructor holds Pads for you for 5 rounds of 3min each. Incredibly hard workout! Then the groups switch, bags goes to padwork and vice versa.

Each day of the week remains consistent with a theme, kicking, mitwork, etc. I really enjoy the excellent structure and the Thai guys make you feel so welcomed and teach you so much. Some know more English than others, if you stay a while I’m sure they would appreciate English lessons traded for Thai language lessons, if you’re into it.

Lastly, the group finishes with some abs but mostly a good stretch. Honestly a lot of people who go here come year after year, a lot of foreigners practicing, and the people are awesome. Highly recommend and awesome rats too.

There is a morning class 7:30-9:30 and a 4:00-6:00 class, some people come twice a day. It’s 300thb a class, but the monthly packages are well worth it!

Had a great time at Rawai Muay Thai in the two weeks of training! Speaking for myself, I could moslty improve my Muay Thai techniques, especially while sparring with their young Thai champs. It is a more traditional camp (for example they teach you the Wai Khru) and has a nice family-atmosphere. Tuk and Diana (owners of the gym) were super friendly and helpful, although sparring with Tuk is very exhausting (but beneficial) :D Btw: the beaches in Khao Lak are a very beautiful and nice to hang out during the two training sessions ;) Just consider: the gym is not close to the city center, but in a calm and green area. Note that you need a scooter on the daily basis to get around.

Amazing gym to train. Every body is friendly and welcoming. The gym is keep very clean and most trainers speak good English. The rooms are also very nice as is the pool for chilling out after training. There is much to see and do also if you have days off training and so much choice for food. I would definitely recommend Tik's resultant which is only about 300 meters from the gym. Hope this helps
