    Thanks for all the information... I have about $1,000 saved up in the bank right now (I guess about $35,000 BHT then?) and I hope to double that by next year, hopefully I can go sometime next year or the year after that.

    What is the general age limit for training in the Muay Thai camps? Or is there none?

    I don't know if there is any one policy that they all follow. I seem to recall signing some sort of legal release of liability at Fairtex, and I imagine you would have to be considered an adult for that, unless you had a parent there to sign it for you. I don't know what the age limit is for signing a legal release of liability in Thailand, though.

    I have friends whose 10-year-old son trained at Fairtex, but they were there to supervise him and sign the waiver.

    Are you asking for yourself, or for a child that you will be supervising? Or are you asking how old the Thai children have to be before they can start training to be professional fighters?

    You should probably contact the camps you are interested in individually and ask them. The camps that train foreigners will have someone on staff who can speak English. For example, the Fairtex web site (I swear I don't work for them) has a web forum where you can ask questions like this, and they are pretty responsive about answering them:

    I'm asking for myself. My friend and i wanna get into some hard Muay Thai (of course having SOME experience before going of course) and do a little traveling (if possible) after graduating highschool, it might just be a pipe dream, but people have done things like coast to coast road trips, so why not Thailand?

    (My teacher's friend from the Peace-Core has spent a year [?] or so biking riding whole continents, he went from Canada to the Tip of South America and had some interesting pictures and experiences and he said "Why would i go travel and experience life being old when i can go in my prime and then come back an older man with a job being content with those experiences")

    You will likely encounter racism in Thailand, but that should not stop you from going there. Ive met black tourists there that had the time of their life.
    Ah man that really sucks , cause I am going to Thailand in September.

    Anyone ever considered training in Holland instead of Thailand? It seems like it might be the better choice for the average (or larger) American, just in terms of suitable quality sparring partners and refinement of the larger person's MT game.

    I have this thought as well. But the appeal for thailand to me isn't really the authenticity of the training, it's being able to train full time with no distractions relatively cheaply.
    There's no choice but to confront you, to engage you, to erase you. I've gone to great lengths to expand my threshold of pain. I will use my mistakes against you. There's no other choice.

    Meaning you like Ladyboys, better than fat Dutch hookers?

    Seriously though, what's your height/fight weight?
