Kobra is the place to be on Koh Phangan island! Best one on one training (even group training is one on one). Really warm welcoming! The trainers are incredible, from master Kob to his younger trainer.
Master kong Pipop, former muay thai professional and owner of this gym, as well as 3 real thai fighters in the 20's (in the heart of their fighting career) will be there to welcome you, teach you the best technique of this beautiful martial art, and kick your assss! Here you'll get the best and hardest training you want, in a relax, funny and friendly atmosphere.
As soon as you get into the gym, you'll feel like you're part of this amazing family. From begginer to advance level, this is where you want to train!
Just so you know how good it is, I discovered muay thai and try it for the first time at Kobra in june 2012. Since then, I already came back twice in the year (10 weeks training + 2 other weeks), and did my first fight as a Kobra team fighter (AMAZING EXPERIENCE).
Either if you just want to try because you are curious (as it is the national sport of Thailand) if you want to train for fun or fitness, or even for competition, or any other reason that can bring you here... they will bring you to the next level!!!
On top of it, they are REALLY helpful with everything you need! Their have motorbike for rent (if you need it, don't look anywhere else, they are very good quality, safe and cheap) and if you're looking for accomodation, they will be more than happy to help you find the most perfect thing for you!
Also if you're lucky, you might be there while they hold a fight night, directly at Kobra Stadium. Great atmosphere, incredible fight (you'll see what your trainers can really do on the ring) and a hole night of fun garanteed!
So go have a look and I dare you not to get addicted to this place and those people (IMPOSSIBLE).
Finally, enjoy your time at Kobra and please, kiss them all for me!
Thanks for everything you did for me Kobra family, I already miss you too much! See you when you see me...pretty soon! Rak jumb beuy and Chok dee ka!!!!
