Probably the overall best muay thai gym in thailand. Ive been to a lot of muay thai gyms while travelling thailand and i have to say, this is the best in my oppinion. Pascal is a great guy, very humble and all the coaches are awesome in their field and fun to train with. The gym is always clean, equipment is state of the art, they offer ice baths, juice bar, lounge area, group classes and one on one training. Also the merch in the shop is great quality. Im very happy to have found this place. 💪🏻✌🏻🍀

By my estimation this is the best and most professional Muay Thai, Boxing, Kickboxing and functional fitness gym on the entire island and definitely in the Top 10 for all of Thailand. Owner and coaches are high level, very skilled, all of them are actual experienced pro fighters with hundreds of pro fight wins combined. But they are also down to earth and friendly people, so I would say it is beginner friendly. Many upcoming pro fighters are training here, but also some hobby practitioners and beginners. Good vibes across the board. Can totally recommend to anybody!!

Chai best teacher in the world!!!! Очень крутой и атмосферный зал идите сюда и не пожалеете!!!

Wir (beide Ü50) hatten uns spontan entschieden, 2 „Privat-Einführungs-Lektionen“ Muay Thai bei MAA zu buchen. Wir haben den Entscheid nicht bereut – im Gegenteil. Tolle Erfahrung mit super freundlichen und engagierten Staff. Zur Nachahmung für Anfänger und auch Ü50 empfohlen (etwas Grundfitness allerdings vorausgesetzt😜)

Great spot! The rates are expensive, on par with what you’d pay in Europe but you’ll rarely get a gym in such beautiful location. Hopefully some grappling added soon 🙏

Amazing place! My partner and I had a great experience at the Martial Arts Academy. We’re both beginners, and sometimes boxing gyms can be slightly intimidating, but this was absolutely not the case here. Trainer Ling Lom was a great teacher for me and trainer Kong got my partner, who tried Muay Thai for the first time, very excited about it, so we are definitely looking forward to coming back next year. The gym further more is clean, has a very passionate owner and a friendly and welcoming staff.

It was a pleasure to train at this gym. It was a clean and modern gym. The team of instructors were very friendly and professional. Every member was friendly and helpful. We can truly recommend the martial arts academy to everybody. After two days of training we already are planning to come back for a longer trip including training.

One of the best Muay Thai and martial arts gyms I ever been. Pascal is a great inspiration, the trainers are world class. The facilities are top notch. Wouldn’t miss the experience.


Ice baths have been used for centuries by athletes and health enthusiasts to reduce muscle soreness, inflammation, and improve circulation. Taking a plunge in the ice bath can help stimulate the body’s natural healing processes, allowing you to recover more quickly from your training.

In addition to its physical benefits, the ice bath is also a great way to boost mental resilience and discipline. Stepping into the icy water takes a great deal of courage, but it can help you develop a stronger mindset, preparing you for any challenge that comes your way.

Join us every day for our ice bath session. Your body will thank you!
