  • Pinyo was my first serious camp in Thailand - it was through this gym that I got the opportunity to fight for the first time. That was a nice experience for me, and as a result, I've felt the need to stay involved in Muay thai has ever since.

    It's a good camp to progress in your fight journey -if you want to get hard training and results, it's a good place to be.

WHY I LOVE THIS MUAY THAI CAMP

AARON JAHN

Host

"After years of travelling the length and breadth of Thailand searching for "the perfect gym", I came to realise that it doesn't exist...

Every gym has its pros and cons, but Wech Pinyo feels like my home away from home, and it's currently my first choice for training in Thailand. 

Why? Firstly, it's in a great little location on Koh Samui right opposite the beach. I no longer want to train in the polluted air of Bangkok, getting sick and run down while I'm training in a filthy gym. I want to feel good inside AND outside the gym.

Secondly, I think this gym suits beginners and advanced fighters. Everybody gets equal attention here - there's no favouritism. The beginners get structured training to suit their needs and the fighters get trained like fighters. It's not a one size fits all gym.

I've fought several times for the gym and I was always well-prepared for every fight.

As for strength and conditioning element of the camp - no fight camp even comes close to being adequate without it. The sessions included in this fight camp are exclusive to the group and will compliment your muay Thai training - not hinder it.

The reason I am running the camps in groups is that it is important to have balance of tough training and good fun while in Thailand. Group activities and socialising outside of the gym will help you experience everything Thailand has to offer, while upping your game in the gym at the same time."

FIGHT CAMP Q&A

What does a typical training day look like?

You'll wake around 6am and begin the morning run through Lamai village and along the beach back to the gym to start training at 7am. Morning training is more laid back than afternoon training, consisting of shadow work, light bag work, pads and clinching (optional).

The afternoon run begins at 3:30pm and you'll start training back a the gym at 4pm where the head coach teaches technique drills for 20-30 minutes before hitting the main bulk of the session - sparring, pads, bag work and clinching.

The volume and intensity you work at during these sessions depends on your goals. If you want to train like a fighter you'll need to make it known to your coach upon arrival and you'll be trained accordingly. Essentially, you can do as much or as little as you want, but fighters will often train for 3-4 hours in the afternoon session, with much more emphasis on clinching than for the recreational Thai boxer.

 

Where are the strength and conditioning sessions?

These sessions will take place twice a week at the muay Thai gym and will begin after your morning muay Thai session.

 

Are there local amenities near the gym?

Yes. Pretty much everything you need is within walking distance of the gym - supermarkets, hairdressers, massage parlours, motorbike rentals, bars, night club, street food.

 

Can I fight?

If you're up to the required standard - yes, you may take a fight while you're here. Fights can be arranged at the local stadium or on big shows on Thai TV. Aaron can also use his contacts in Thailand to get you onto bigger shows such as MAX Muay Thai, Thai Fight, and shows abroad in places like China and Japan with big fight purses.

 

How often can I fight?

This will depend on your injuries and your trainer's advice. The trainers will help you to get as much fight experience as you want during your stay, so long as you're up to scratch. The best way to ensure you make the most of your time here is to come to the camp in great shape so that you're good to go.

 

Do I have to fight?

No, it is not compulsory to take a fight during your stay.

 

What are the food options?

Restaurants are plentiful in Lamai. The price for a single Thai dish starts at around 60 baht. Street food is amazing and is available the whole time, the Sunday night market is a particular highlight.

 

How will I get around?

Most people prefer to rent a moped (scooter) while they're here as it gives them freedom as well as being a very cheap vehicle to run. However, if you're not keen on riding bikes then there are numerous other ways of travelling from A to B such as motorbike taxis, regular taxis and songtaews (pickup trucks with benches in the back!).

 

What about trips to the stadium?

Regular trips to the stadium will be arranged to watch the gym's fighters battle it out. 

 

Can I buy training gear at the gym?

Yes. Gloves, bags, pads, wraps, shorts and vests can be purchased at at the gym shop. 

 

Where can I find information on visas?

Visas for Thailand are handled differently in each country. Contact the Thai Consulate in your country for more info.

 

When can I start?

The next camp is running from August 8th until September 5th. You may join the camp at any point during that time, so long as your stay doesn't over-run the end date.
