Muay Thai training

Throughout your Muay Thai training vacation at Sit Je Mam, you will take part in two group training sessions per day, Monday to Saturday. Sessions are adapted to suit participants' levels and help them achieve their goals. By training in small groups of up to 12 people, each guest receives plenty of individual attention and one-on-one time with the trainers.


Beginners will be given step-by-step instruction with a greater emphasis on fundamentals and technique, while intermediates, amateur and professional fighters will receive training aimed at improving their technique, stamina, and power and enabling them to compete at the highest level.


Muay Thai sessions involve: rope skipping / jumping on tyres, shadow boxing (supervised by a trainer), bagwork (supervised by a trainer), padwork with a trainer, clinching, drills on the bags (knees, kicks, push-kicks in groups, supervised by a trainer), sparring (three times a week), core exercises (neck, arms, back, abs, legs), cool down and stretching exercises.

Sophie, UK:

"I would highly recommend Sitjemam. As a beginner, knowing absolutely nothing about Muay Thai, Mam took the time to go through every single movement with me and she had so much patience as I have the worst coordination! The gym is very friendly and welcoming and other gym members are always happy to help you out to improve your technique. Within just 2 weeks I improved my strength and built my fitness which is what I was wanting to do. Thank you to the whole team Sitjemam!"


Kat, Germany:

"I had the best time at Sitjemam! It’s a very personal and attentive gym with an awesome team! beginners to pros get a great training. It’s demanding and empowering and involves a lot of sweat and laughter. I was so sad to leave and am already planing my next stay there."


Nick, UK:

"Great location, with fantastic views and environment to train in. Training was very varied, something different most days, speed, endurance, sparring, or technical, so different challenges through the week. Training was very much more personalised than at bigger, busier gyms, and I felt I made good progress. I will definitely train here again. I originally came for four weeks, but stayed for seven."


Christopher, Canada:

"Great school away from town. Helps you focus on your training without too much distraction. The coaches are dedicated and professional. I trained with them for 2 weeks and it help me improve my muay thai significantly. I recommend this school for every level: from the beginners to the pro they are gonna help you improve your muay thai."


Leonardo, UK:

"Great Muay Thai training camp. There are people of any level, from high level fighters to complete beginners but I would suggest coming particularly if you're serious about Muay Thai to get the best out of the experience. The trainers are very skilled and they push you to your limits, so you'll get all the times an intensive and extremely useful session. The location is great too, it's not in the central town of Pai, so out of the busy environment, but the town is still reachable by motorbike in about 10 minutes, and there you'll find restaurants, shops, bars, night market etc. From there you can also easily go to see several natural places of beautiful Pai, such as waterfalls and hot springs."
