    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Muay Thai in Malaysia

    Before I took up Western Boxing, I really wanted to take Muay Thai as a stand up art to complement my BJJ and Judo. Living in Malaysia and so close to Thailand, I assumed that there would be a plethora of options to choose from. Turns out that the only options were either watered down garbage, or cardio-boxing marketed as MT.




    As it turns out a famous Thai Boxer (former champion) is moving to the city I'm living in and opening up a school: http://boxxtomoi.blogspot.com/


    The head coach is one Saksit Chosipaksert (160 Wins, 60 Losses, 10 Draws). The class prices are very reasonable and the 1:1 classes are the equivalent of $20 USD per session. The classes range from a standard class 1, 2, 3 or 4 times per week.

    Then there is the "Nakmuaywannabe" class which is for people who are serious and want hard training with the aim of getting in the ring and fighting competitively.

    Anyways opinions?

    Title changed. I didn't ask a question, I asked for "opinions".

    I'd say go for it. Especially if it really is that cheap.

    Did I mention if it's that cheap, I hate you.

    Honestly your whole post just seems like an advert, what are we mean't to contribute?

    Your choices seem to be:
    Don't train.
    Train with a 230 fight Thai for practically nothing.

    You seriously need us to mommy you through this decision?

    No it's called making conversation on a MA forum. I'm not looking for guidance on whether to go or not, I'm simply hoping my thread will spawn some feedback from people who've been to the school, trained with the said teacher or feel like generating some interesting MT conversation!

    I'm not advertising anything, I'm simply making my comments informative. You got nothing better to bitch about?

    Ok, if you want to get semantical about it. Besides it's 5:30 am in Oz, why aren't you in bed?

    Ha! The trick is to lay down in bed and put one foot on the floor. Always helps.
