    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Moving to Brazil - Good Muay thai schools in São Paulo?

    Hello,

    I am moving to Brazil, São Paulo for a year and need some solid advice on good schools. If in São Bernardo dos Campos area even better since I want to avoid long drives through the city.

    I really want to do proper muay thai but when I search I keep getting the cardio "kickboxing" stuff or some wannabe muay thai schools. The few schools I found that seem to have potential have sparring videos and they are awful to say the least. I am open to doing sambo, sando, boxing and even judo if there aren´t any good schools in that area.


    Here is the "best" I could find online but not totally impressed. Maybe someone knows about this place? coliseuteamacademia.com.br/modalidades/lutas/muay-thai
    Then in this club you can see the awful sparring videos: tigerthai.com.br/galeria/videos/ . It might be really good but the videos are deceiving...anyone with experience from this school?

    PS: I found Kudo club, don´t know the quality and maybe someone here has first hand experience of the club. I believe it is in Santo Andre area, close to São Bernardo.

    Thanks in advance!

    Regards,
    Vasquinho

    lol! Moving to Brazil and want to study anything but BJJ. That would be like me moving to Thailand and wanting to find a good Greco Roman Wrestling school. :D
