Mixed feeling as I walked in: 'damn, those Thai guys could knock me out with one punch', followed by 'damn, those girls look out of shape'. And that's very much what the beginners' class is like. If it is a quiet day, you might just have 1 or 2 others working out with you. On a busier day the gym may be full. Either way, you will have the chance to learn the fundamentals - first shadowing then on a bag, then finally finish up 1-on-1 with a guy who will lead you through some combos, and maybe just as you think you've got it, even catch a kick and put you on your butt. Very humbling and well worth 550 baht. Also on Guavapass. Thanks team RSM. Wish I had done this years ago.

It was my dream to come from India and learn Muay Thai at RSM Academy, so I plan a solo trip and visit Bangkok. I have been following RSM on instagram and FB. I used to wake up at home and watch a video every single day, read the timetable and dream of going there. The day I was walking to Habito Mall and it was in front of me, it was a dream come true, I was one step closer and the moment i reached the third floor- there I was. Meeting the instructors who according to me are stars in their own right, I have been a big fan of each of them (remember watching them on insta and FB and their website). I am a beginner, came thinking I have lot of strength as I have been a fitness freak, but hey this is a totally different ball game. I actually realized how much focus one needs and how much strength you need to jab, hook, kick, elbow......Its been 4 days 2 more to go....and I have surely had a memorable time here. The classes have made me stronger, my shoulders and arms feel so toned, its tough on the core and legs for sure with all the kicks. It is a kickass workout as it shoots your heart rate. Overall, if you have been doing kickboxing or combat in the air, try MUAY THAI @RSM Academy, it will change you as a person. I love having new experiences new friends!

RSM has now 3 studios, this one in thonglor, one in Jasmine City in Asok and one in Habito mall in Onnut. I tried the 3 and they are actually a bit different though some teachers seem to be teaching in all of them. Only Asok has AC (impossible to open windows), the others open their windows and use fans. In Asok and Thonglor classes last between 1:15 and 1:30 while in onnut each class lasts one hour but always have 3 rounds of face to face while the first 2 studios usually have 2 (3 when there are less students). Asok and Thonglor spend more time on exercises than actual muay thai, which is good for beginners as people need to first build stamina and strengthen their core before being able to last during face to face. Teachers change all the time, so it's good if you want to try out slightly different styles. Typical class will have warm up, running, skipping, (lot of) abs exercises, muay thai movement practice alone or with the bag, 2-3 rounds of face to face with teachers (each round being followed by abs exercises) and 20 kicks by leg on a bag. About the studios facility, for toilets in Asok and Thonglor you need to go out of the studio, onnut changing room is big enough for one person at a time (for women at least). Asok class is sometimes completely packed (they even refused students once as there was literally no space anymore) while onnut has much less so you might get more advice and corrections in onnut than in asok or thonglor. Overall good experience! If you like sports and live in Thailand I think muay thai is a must-try and this studio gives good explanations to beginner students. Be aware that muay thai is supposed to be practiced barefoot. I was keeping my indoor tennis shoes as my knees are very weak but it is not supposed to be authorized... If you are prone to knees / wrists tendinitis, do more warm-ups than what the teachers ask you to do and/or wear specific protections. Enjoy the class!

Great place for a tourist to workout and burn off those calories. Trainer Nan was friendly and since there wasn't anyone else I got a 1-to-1 session. Best to call before hand to book or at least to enquire. Take the BTS to Thong Lo station and then it's about 5 min ride by bike.

This is a nice,clean Muay Thai gym in the centre of Bangkok. Probably not the best place to train if your aim is to be a fighter,but its a great workout and the trainers are friendly. Great location and reasonably priced.
