We are here to listen to your voice.
CLEANLINESS IS OUR FIRST PRIORITY
The Camp Muaythai Resort and Academy pays attention to sense of beauty.
We believe the gym should be sacred place for athletes.
We know people do not like the Gym of dirty, dusty, germy, wetty, smelly (stanky!) and unsafe. Cleanliness is top priority for us.
QUALITY IS OUR MOST IMPORTANT VALUE
The Camp Muaythai Resort and Academy focus on the training quality decently.
- In order to maintain the best training quality, we set the trainer vs student coverage ratio as 1:3 (max).
Normally it's one on one or one on two at most.
Our trainer always pay attention to each of you and we never let students being alone in front of heavy bags, or somewhere else, which is commonly observed at many other gyms.
- We do not spend much time about physical training because it's waste of time.
We believe the customer who come and train with us expect to learn more about Muay Thai technique, not simply come for physical training.
We have a weight training area in the gym, so if you prefer to do more physical training, you can also use our facility for free. Physical work out should not be included in your precious Muaythai session.
- We work as a team.
We do not need any star players in our team.
This is our strong belief.
Star player such as ex-champion or famous fighter are sometimes arrogant, rude, lazy and those people tend to force students to follow his own way.
We know good fighter are NOT always good coach.
Instead, we maintain high quality standard as a team. Whenever you visit us, our trainers can provide the best coaching to you, no matter who you train with.
TRAINING LOOKS LIKE
We split 4 different level category at each class. Length of training is 90min (150min for Professional)
There are various kinds of warm up depending on the level and size of the class as well as weather condition, etc.
We warm up by skipping rope or tire bounce followed by stretching, shadow boxing and fun footwork drills.
100% technique focus pad work is one of our signature trainings.
We sometimes observe many gyms offer 3min x just a few rounds pad work, and not much focus on technique but just hold the pads. It's not a professional service to let student kicks and punches as they wish and make them just tired.
We hate that.
We are professional Muaythai coach team, NOT just pad holders.
Normally we offer 4min x at least 6-8 rounds pad work and we do more as requested or feel it necessary. Training purpose is not to make you tired, but to spend enough time with you in order to teach technique, to help building the foundation, and to work out the drill together. Yes, you will be feeling exhausted but it's worth.
The heavy bag becomes a tool for developing EFFICIENT POWER, not absolute power.
You need power punches and kicking in order to strengthen your fight muscle but make sure to control energy. Pay attention, stay balance, and work that bag.
The Camp skilled coaches will direct you how to get efficient bag works.
We believe Drills is another important part of Muay Thai training and we suggest students should spend more time on this. We focus on drills for all 3 parts ; Striking, Defending and Counter Attacking. We combine various part of these drills depending on the situation.
We have an optional sparing session who would like to test and improve your skill to the next level. The sparring allows students to practice and utilize their skills against opponent. Usually sparring is done at 50-70% speed and 25-30% power, and students must wear shin pad, mouthpiece and head guards to prevent injury. The gloves should be 16oz or above.
We also focus on building your fitness base by using Muay Thai movement such as kicking, Kneeing, punching etc. Intensity will vary depending on your physical strength and skill level. ex) Advanced / Professional class require more than 500 kicks and Knees, right and left respectively.
We do not spend much time for clinching. Given that clinching is only limited to Muaythai fight and it's useless mostly for other standing fight such as K1 or kickboxing.
We want our customer to spend more useful and valuable time in our class, therefore we focus more on Thai kicking or other Muay Thai techniques rather than spending 30-40min for clinching. Of course we do clinching as requested.
Stretch – Cool Down
After an every intense session, it is important to stretch well in order to recover quickly and be ready for the next session. It improves your flexibility and thus prevent injury.
Every cool down will be followed by some meditation. The Camp coaches will guide you properly.
