    That is a shame, was thinking about heading out for a bit next year.

    Ah well, suppose these things happen.

    Anyone been down to Chok Chai Muay Thai Phuket on Soi Taeed (Tiger) RD? http://chokchaimuaythai.com/

    Was thinking of checking it perhaps in late August.

    Either that or Kaewphitak in Rawai

    First ever post in here, so hope this is the right sticky thread as opposed to making a new one.

    I've been doing Muay Thai for close to a year now. My old body was breaking down so I left bjj and found a stand up I liked.

    I do most sports orthodox, but I do write left handed and hit a baseball left handed. The trainer has told me a couple times I get way more power on switch kicks and knees.

    He asked me about trying to train south pay for a bit. It feels awkward as fuck, especially throwing combos with my hands.

    Any thoughts? Is this normal for some of us?

    Do what feels right, if you're new you shouldn't even be focusing on power

    Edit: To be clear I mean do what feels natural, if you feel awkward on one side don't go with that. I ride a skateboard, scooter, etc goofy so I'm sort of in the same boat. I just went orthodox

    thanks. I was at the gym last night and went soutpw and another dude at the gym (good guy) lol when I was throwing a left to the body.

    Another neat thing. While throwing a push kick then inside leg kick, it felt really smooth with my foot placement.

    I can't speak for others but I just came back from a month stay at Kiatphontip a few weeks ago.

    I've heard good things about Eminent but can confidently say that Kiatphontip was an awesome gym to train at. (Solid clinching everyday as well).

    Great trainers, great food, great people and the gym's set in a nice relaxing environment away from the pollution and the busy bangkok life, but also close enough to commute into town (bangkok city) whenever you feel like.

    Feel free to PM me if you have any furtherquestions.
