The area
Address
Neighborhood: Sukhumvit
With a mix of shopping malls, hip bars and food stalls lining both sides of Thailand’s longest road, you’ll rarely encounter a dull moment along Sukhumvit. While the main road itself doesn't offer a lot in terms of entertainment, it's the adjoining 'sois' (alleys) where the magic happens. Popular spots are soi 11 for a lively night out, soi 4 for naughty nightlife and soi 21 for world-class shopping at Terminal 21. It's hard to cover everything this area has to offer in on day, so be sure to take your time. Sukhumvit is heavily congested with traffic during day and night, so getting from A to B is most convenient using the BTS Skytrain right above it.
How to get there
  • Queen Sirikit National Convention Centre • 7 min walk

Excellence in Training and Customer Service
Feb 2020 • Solo
I came all the way from Brazil to train at Yokkao and was amazed not only with the training, but also with Neri from the staff who went well above and beyond the call of duty to help me find my way back to my hotel and to teach me how to use the Bangkok subway system since it was my first time in Bangkok. Nat was also a major player in this winning team and helped book the private training before I left Brazil. And, off course, @petchmankong for the perfect training session. Yokkao was customer service at its very best level. I was not disappointed after flying more than 16.000 km for a training session. Thank you, Yokkao team. Thanks for the rescue, Neri !

Great for experienced fighters, not for beginners.
Jan 2020
Having trained muay thai years ago in London, but now training as a Western boxer I popped along for a session to see what the fuss was about. The gym is buzzing - the Thai trainers are lively, proffesional and are enjoying what they are doing. However the class lacked the structure I was used to - skipping, shadow and a few rounds of pads with a trainer and then just left to our own devices. I hit the bag for a while but then felt unmotivated and a little dissapointed expecting some clearer instructions from someone. It's great to see the pros in action - but there are far better muay thai gyms to train at in bangkok.

World Class Muay Thai Gym
Nov 2019 • Friends
The purpose of my trip to Thailand was to further my skills and knowledge of Muay Thai. After training several sessions at another gym in Bangkok and being disappointed, my friend and I decided to try Yokkao. It was the best decision that we made. We attended six classes and booked six lessons over eight days.

Firstly, the Ajarn, and Krus are extremely well versed and skilled in technique and power, as well as teaching ring strategy. Classes are well structured and will be familiar to students with experience. Skipping rope, shadow boxing, bag work and pad work with a Kru are all part of class. You may even get the opportunity to hit mitts with Ajarn. If you are looking to work on specific areas, your best approach is to book private sessions and explain what you would like to learn. Each of my sessions built on the previous one, and by the end I felt that I had a fuller understanding of the areas I wanted to work on.

Secondly, you will get what you are prepared to give, regardless of your experience. Yokkao is a training gym. If you work hard and listen, the Krus will spend extra time and effort instructing you. , regardless of your skill level. Arrive a few minutes early and check in, bring water, wrap your hands and be ready to train. If you need help wrapping your hands, ask and someone will help.

The energy of the gym is high and positive. Often there are fighters such as Singdam, Manachai, Yodchai, Nut and others training during class. The Krus and fighters joke around with the students. The fighters are are approachable. Everyone is working to improve together. The Manager is friendly and extremely capable. She is willing to help resolve any issues.

Overall, I was very impressed with the depth of knowledge, professionalism, and atmosphere of Yokkao.

Not for beginners.
Nov 2019 • Friends
Went here with a friend. We are both women. I have had done Muay Thai in the past and i always enjoyed it. My friend was a total beginner and first time. We decided to take the 3-6pm class. We were group of 12. 4 coaches doing the training. All of them can’t speak English to explain what to do. As a beginner you will end up just doing your thing if you don’t know what to do or you can also just guess what you should do. I have had experience with the class before. This is quiet no organisation of what to do and how long to do it. Would I recommend it? Not really, if you are a beginner. Maybe the private session would be different experience. I find it quiet expensive though.

It was a fab experience with Him taking pains to work on my techniques.
the workout was fast paced with more focus on techniques and pad workout which is what I wanted.
I shall return next time I visit Bangkok.Training at Yokkao is highly recommended

Great staff and coaches. We’ll definitely come back on our next Bangkok trip. We missed Saenchai but still an excellent session with the rest of the trainers.

Went to bkk for Muay Thai training last Sept. All i can say is, you’ll really learn and enhance your skills. Trainers and the girl in the shop are really welcoming and approachable.

My wife and I stopped in so I could train and she watched. They treated us both great and made sure everyone had fun! Excellent Muay Thai training with active pad men. Saenchai trained and goofed around with everyone, very fun!
