    was drinking with jakrit and din 2 night ago.
    they say have only 2 farang students in fairtex bang phli right now so they get plenty of attention.
    now is the time if any one is interested.
    these 2 have been at fairtex 36 years now.

    I'll be there Nov. 14th for a couple weeks before I go fight at the IFMA World Championships, I can't wait!!

    Jakrit is awesome! His son Jao is a little bad ass too! When I was there training last year, he already had 130 fights. Kid is a beast!

    Yeah, I guess there were about that many when I was there in March/April. Is Bangplee the same price as Fairtex Pattaya? 1200 baht a day?

    The Aussie dollar is also very strong - so you get more bang for your buck.

    The exchange rate (for USD) is currently horrible, and is probably driving some students away. It may also be a lag from the violence in Bangkok several months ago (since people who might be there now would potentially have been planning their trips at the peak of the violence in Bangkok).

    When i was in Fairtex Pattaya in May this year there were only 3-5 other farang.
    In the morning sessions only one would show up besides me most of the time. The training there was really good.
    Luckily i didn't have to pay full price otherwise i would never go there.

    Yes, I was very suprised. I trained at Fairtex Pattaya in 2007 and it was 800 baht for two sessions a day. I went back this year and the price was nearly doubled. I wasn't happy at all. The trainers were lazy and didn't want to interact on pads. Just the basic punch punch kick. I guess they were burned out from dealing with farang tourists year around. I doubt I will ever go back there again.

    Fairtex charges a lot, but I don't think the trainers make much.
