    Hi! Can anyone tell me if there is any MMA gyms you can recommend close to Conrad Hotel in Bangkok? The hotel is located at 87 Witthayu Rd, Lumphini, Pathum Wan, Bangkok. Thank you.

    @Ryukyu Damashi how's the quality of the training at Muay Thai Plaza?
    I was thinking of poping in for a couple of days next week.

    Also any hotel you recommend in the area? Nothing to expensive but still nice and quiet

    Thanks

    I have an apartment in the Phra Khanong/Sukhumvit 71 area, so I don't get over to MT Plaza area much now. When I stayed in hotels in BKK, I stayed at Sukhumvit Suites in Asoke. It was fairly cheap, about 1500 baht a night. Right at the junction of the MRT and BTS.

    That said, it isn't far from the Top King shop near the old Lumpinee stadium. I'm sure it is still worth a drop in.

    I actually like the Yokkao gym. Manop is a great trainer and Singdam is always friendly and down to spar if you want.

    I'll be in BKK December 18-21, before going down to Sitjaopho.

    Anyone been to Jittis lately? I'll be in Bangkok in May so thinking of going back here, went in 2009 and I got fantastic training from Rajasak. Not sure what it's like nowadays though.

    Last time I was in Bangkok I went to 96 Penang at the recommendation of others from this board, but I had a very bad experience with the place so won't be going back here this time.

    Also if anyone knows if Action Zone is still open? I'll definitely pop by if so, best shop in BKK last time I was there.

    Thanks

    I was at ActionZone about 3 weeks ago or so and they were open. Had limited stock on hand but scored two pairs of Windy gloves. Heading back there the 2nd week of January to pick up some more stuff when I head home to the states.

    Not sure when you went to 96 Penang, but it changed owners and trainers. I don't go there anymore either. I guess the change is for the better though. Just not the same anymore.

    I went in 2014, and I think it was you who actually recommended it to me, are you Matthew?

    It was just way too relaxed for me with one easy session a day and the trainer was only interested in taking money off of me rather than actually training me, most of the time I was left on the bags

    I did get to do a bit with Bangpleenoi and Aahn though, so it wasn't all doom and gloom.

    I will be back in Bangkok in May and am planning on going to Muay Thai Plaza, is it best to get off at the Klong toey MRT stop and then get a motorcycle taxi there?

    Any info at all would be great

    How is Bangpleenoi IRL and how is it to spar him ?

    I always thought that he looks laid back AF and possibly funny.
