I have trained at quite a few gyms in Thailand and Chorenrit Muay Thai is definitely the best. Whether you just want to do some fitness work and learn some new skills or if you want to train up for a fight, the guys and Sri will help you out.

The trainer to student ration is really good, usually about 1-2 or 1-3, however when it is quiet you will often get one on one. Either way you will get plenty of personalised training over the two hours.

Mot Dang and Rob (the owner) are active fighters which really shows in the way they train you, with an emphasis on the things that are important in fighting, rather than just blasting away on the pads or baqs. Sri is also very helpful with anything you need to know about Phangan, as well as training the kids and girls who prefer a female trainer.

On my recent trip in November this year, three of the guys from the gym were fighting on the one card. All the rest of us made a night out of it and roared off on our hired motos to have a great night cheering our three guys on (they all won!).

Another thing is that Ko Phangan is a great place to stay for a beach holiday. Personally I avoid the Full Moon Party, but there is plenty of other stuff to do. The beaches are as good as anywhere, restaurants are great and you can pick and choose as to how busy or quiet you want your resort/bungalow to be. I take my family there each year and we all have a great time as I train, my wife dives and my daughter hangs out in the resort pool with the other kids.

See you there soon!

Me and my Brother spent a week training Muay Thai at this gym. We had no prior experience and unsure what we were getting in too. Through a recommendation from someone else, we decided to train at this gym.

It was a super genuine experience. The training was tough, but only as a tough as you want it to be. In other words, the trainers will push you as hard as you want to be pushed. The trainers were knowledgable and friendly.

We did the week long course for 2 times a day. The price was very reasonable compared to other gyms we checked. If I plan to train again in Muay Thai, this will definitely be my first choice.

I had an amazing week with the folks at Chorenrit Muay Thai. I went to bed every night feeling exhausted and accomplished. The training staff are very experienced and can work with fighters at any level. If I come back to Koh Phangan I would love to further my training here. Thank you very much for the great experience!
