    Hey, i was planning to go to thailand and join a mauy thai gym and train for around 6 weeks.

    But i think i would much prefer learning boxing. I have no previous fighting/combat training what so ever so i want to learn the foundations from a decent place.

    Im in the UK and want to go abroad, so for boxing i was thinking Mexico or some thing?

    Just wondering if anyone has done anything similar or has any adivce for a newbie takng up boxing.

    If i dont find anything else i'll settle for mauy thai. I've found two gyms in Phuket, Thailand but the place is quite touristy and i want a pretty intense trainings period.

    Great question.

    I was thinking the same thing. I want to go abroad and do boxing but dont know of as many affordable places to go to.

    I'm also thinking of doing Muay Thai as well in Thailand. But like you id prefer boxing.

    I would also recommend learning the basics from a local gym first. I wouldn't recommend spending a fair amount of cash on travelling to learn something which might not be for you. It's hard to tell how tough the sport is if you haven't experienced it, so i would say go to your nearest gym and see if you enjoy it before diving in the deep end.
