We’re really pleased that you are considering choosing training with us at Sutai. We have people staying here to train from all around the world, all of different ages, abilities and what makes it so interesting for us is that everyone seems to want something different from their time at the camp. Whether its to take their first step into Muay Thai, lose weight or to fight with the best in Thailand. Either way, we can help.
But don’t take our word for it… here’s an insight from Vernon, one of our guests who stayed wth us recently. he wasn’t what most people would imagine as your typical person to take a Muay Thai training holiday, at 63 most people would be surprised to hear he would travel half way around the world to meet us but we are proud to say that he chose us and we are so glad that we made his experience an enjoyable one!!
“My experience at Suati Muay Thai was amazing from the moment I arrived till the time my journey had ended. My initial selection was based on reviews I had read and by word of mouth. My personal trainer, Paul Marfort, of Florida Muay Thai knew both Mauricio Calvo and Amy Sharp (Sutai Muay Thai). He absolutely recommended them more than other gyms in Phukett or surrounding area. My goal was to train to be healthier mentally and physically as well as to build a broader foundation of Muay Thai. I write this to convey my 3 reservations that I had before “jumping” into my trip: Traveling abroad by myself, NOT speaking the native language and the fear I was going to feel embarrassed/inferior to the other students. These three fears were totally unfounded! Thanks to the staff at Sutai Mauy Thai!
When I arrived I was greeted/picked up at the airport by a staff member. Once I arrived to the facility I was energetically greeted by all that were present, both fighters and trainers. The welcoming in itself was reassuring that this was the right fit for me; a close comradery atmosphere feeling.
During my stay there on site the housing accommodations provided everything needed to train and relax (King bed, Television, air-conditioning, small refrigerator, coffee or tea pot, and bathroom and shower-all very clean).
The training at Sutai Muay Thai was very organized and intense for all levels of experience: beginners, intermediate and those that are advanced fighters. There was no pressure, no criticism and no judgement- all levels would benefit from the daily training. All of the trainers were very patient, kind and knowledgeable. They were willing to teach you the correct techniques no matter how long it took to learn :-). ALL ages were participating! They are masters of knowing how much you can perform and they will push you in order for you to gain experience, stamina and self-esteem in Muay Thai. Following the training sessions they would often sit and chat with us explaining what we did wrong, or praise what we did right and how to take it to higher level. I was overwhelmed with gratification of how they took my abilities to another level from when I arrived. I am proud to say I worked extremely hard to gain benefits from training AND to say that I am 63 years OLD!
Another concern was the food/diet I would be exposed to BUT again, no worries. I frequent several restaurants close to the Sutai and settled for one in particular which five minutes from Sutai. The one thing I was impressed with the most while dining in Thailand was that all your food is fresh. Whether its fruits or vegetables they are always fresh, nothing frozen and recooked. I chose Audy’s restaurant which I frequent almost daily. Again, the food was very good and very affordably priced. The customer service was outstanding and after my time spent there we interacted in a close and friendly, family atmosphere. Also, within walking distance are many other restaurants, convenience stores, banks, Pharmacy etc. Etc. Prepare to allocate for purchasing bottled water during your trip and training. Should you forget to bring your water for training it is available to purchase.
During my month long stay at Sutai Muay Thai I met many new friends from many countries of the world who came to Sutai Muay Thai to train. They all embraced not only me but others as we arrived. Among them were many fighters who possessed a wealth of knowledge that I was able to ask them questions about fighting. They would cordially give their experiences. Although many languages were spoken we had very little challenges in communicating with each other. Someone always was a link for interpretation :-).
In closing, I suggest that if you’re looking towards training Muay Thai and experiencing Thailand that you select Sutai Muay Thai. I confidently believe you will not be disappointed and furthermore, leave with incredible training and a comradery of friends for a life time.”
