    Been training in Phuket many time, Go for traincation very good. If you serious and want to train hard? than first time not go here ok my friend. But if you like beach, beer, and biz. than area perfect for you. Nice area, very pricey. But must do if you go to Thailand ok.

    - Sinbi- Good location, nice area, easy easy, prob best if I pick. Nice beach close by.

    - Supa MT (formerly Rawai MT)- near sinbi, new trainers,

    - Rawai koh lak- new gym, ok beach, but nothing to do. good for train.

    - Namsaknoi gym- pricey location, but good training, party hard if you like. I heard Namsaknoi left though so avoid ok

    - Tiger- Big big gym, you like? OK, depend on trainer

    -Dragon- Better than tiger for sure, less expensive

    - Lion- trash

    -Phuket top team- for mma good, MT ok ok

    Wish I would of trained there more. Always good to try something a little different from time to time. Everyone I knew that trained there was shocked they closed up so abruptly. I enjoyed that James and Roberto were pretty tough trainers. If you didn't show you were trying, give up, or complain, they had no problem telling you to get the hell out.

    He is at AKA in thailand now. Atleast he can say he made the dutch style more popular there. Now both tiger and ptt try to do it. When you train with them, it hate them with a passion, but better afterwards lol

    You live in NJ and you would like to go to Thailand for grappling? I think you have so many world class grapplers and submission specialists that any of these Thailand camps would love to have. USA has the best grappling scene after Brazil if not at the same level.

    Lmao the gyms are good, but i don't train in new jersey, i train in nyc. The only reason i'm going to thailand is for just 3 months to just focus on training, i'll be staying in the accomodations in the gym, i won't have to sign a year contract, i won't have to pay a $17 train ride, i'll be working on my kicks and knees and elbows as well as my punches and work on conditioning, i'm mainly going their to work on my stand up. The only reason i don't train in new jersey is because every gym in new jersey wants me to sign a contract. And i don't want to do that, so i train nyc where i don't have to sign a contract. I mean it would be nice to learn some grappling in thailand just to work on some grappling.

    I suggest that if you're going to Thailand to train Muay Thai, stick to Muay Thai. Injuries and sickness are very common in Thailand. No reason to add another element that could take you out of training. Imagine grappling with someone your first week there and tearing a ligament. There goes a month of training.
