My question relates to injury, overtraining and illness. I suppose what I am worried about is getting to Tiger Muay thai and then having to stop after a week. I always get sick at the end of my heavy training phases back home no matter how well I take care of myself. I also would hate to get something small that kept me out like blisters or a cut on my knuckles that keeps opening up. So i suppose just wondering from any ones experience if there are some exercises/supplements/routines that I should definatley do or not do. Cheers Ed
My experience is to listen to you body if it comes to overtraining. Just train a few days only a afternoon session en sleep good. You will get blisters but thats no thing to stop you from training. Just put some tape over it and you won't feel a thing. Same with cuts on your knuckles. Tape will help. Supplements are better to bring with you. Just some protein will be enough i think. If it comes to exercises in front of your trip just run,skip and stretch, than it's a little easier to concentrate on your technics if your there. Cheers Mike ps: Is there a chance somebody from Tiger could upload the football pictures again because there not working

Thanks for the advice Mike. I also had one more question for anyone out there. I was just wondering what the running training is like at TMT, obviously I want to focus on Muay Thai but I have always loved 'gut running' and I think that this is one of the most ultimate forms of fitness
There is a saying: "Writers write." There is another: "Muay Thai fighters run." Most Muay Thai fighters consider running one of the most important aspects of their training because 75% of all Muay Thai fights go the distance of 5-rounds. This requires outstanding stamina and endurance. Running and clinch circles are two of the ways that Thai fighters develop a strong stamina. Our trainers are part of an organized "Running Program" where they start with guests 2-times per day. The running program does "long runs" and sprints as part of the Muay Thai training program.

Dear Tiger Gym Representative,
I was wondering: how much does a pair of 14 oz gloves cost in your camp? Thanks! Joshua
I will be going over to your gym in december 09. Already got my airline ticket booked One question: I'll be going for your mma program. What kind of equipment do I need?
Muay Thai gloves (14 oz) run 1250 -1450 baht depending on make. For the MMA program you will need MMA/ Muay Thai shorts, Rashguard, mouthpiece, 16 oz boxing gloves, (MMA gloves (optional). Happy to answer any questions you may have. You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org Chok Dee Krup Will @ TMT Phuket
Is there any ever 'crossfit' work outs done at Tiger Muay Thai? I have seen that this type of training is used for MMA alot. The 7:00am bootcamp would probably be alot like cross fit I imagine
Yes, the "Boot Camp Fitness Program" is used a s a "Cross-Fitness" program where you do a variety of exercises both anaerobic and aerobic in nature. Then you can move right into Muay Thai or MMA programs starting to continue your training.
Happy to answer any questions you may have at email@example.com Chok Dee TMT
hi TMT! i will be coming there on the 5th of dec 09! cant wait. do u hv all the gears tat i need for my MMA training? im planning to juz buy my gears in thailand. thank u.
I require some info about you gym if you may. I fought on both kickboxing and thai-boxing in my country and was a Vice champion at muay thai. Then i had to stop and now i want to catch up the lost time in order to take it to the next level(european championship). What i want to know if at your camp i can prepare: 2 times a day/everyday - and sunday's break with professional fighters(although i know they all fight from age 6-8 ) ) Also want to know if i stay for 1 month if i can have 4 fights :1 muay thai fight per week (not sparing , real fights) . For a month as described above how much should i pay for training and a place to sleep. I dont care about luxury i just want to train a have a place to sleep. Thank you very much.
We can certainly prepare you for a fight. usually, if you are staying a month we will prepare you for 1 month for a fight. You would need to arrive in fighting shape and have our training manager check your skill level before we will OK you for a fight. If you are in shape and fight ready, yes, we can book fight quickly. However, unless a Thai fighter scores quick KO's, rarely do they fight more than 2-3 times in 1 month. You can want to fight each week, but that is determined by your previous fight. 1. Did you get cut or hurt? 2. Were you in fight shape? 3. Are you ready to fight again. 1 month Training and Budget room = 13,500 baht 1month training and dorm room (private) 11,500 baht Any questions, please contact us for booking at firstname.lastname@example.org Chok Dee TMT
I had a break because i had to find a good place to work and finish my studies.
1. While i fought, yes i had broken ribs, swollen legs, the usual stuff. 2. I didnt had cuts no. 3. Yes i'm in fighting shape and probably when i will arrive at your training camp i will be just after 1 or 2 fights. Also i will bring another person with me that doesnt want to train just support so i dont come alone in Thailand. Can she sleep in the same room with me? or for that she must pay another fee and if this is the case, above 13 000 baht how much should she pay?
Yes, you are welcome to bring a friend at no extra charge. The Dorm rooms are not big enough to add an extra bed, but we can add an extra single bed to budget rooms at no extra charge. Please contact email@example.com to make your booking and our training manager will schedule as many fights for you as we can in 1 month period. Chok Dee TMT

Hello from Norway!
just some quick questions,Im going to train at tmt from 6apr to 1may is there anyone holding any seminar at that time? how often do they hold mma matches in phuket? I have done mt and boxing for some years but not mutch grappling, can i join the beginner and intermidiat mma class then or just the beginner? I want to learn/get better at grappling. sorry for all the bad spelling. sincer ole
We don't have any booked yet for that time. We do hold seminars on a regular basis. It depends on what high profile fighters are visiting the gym then. MMA fights are held at least once a month in Phuket. You could join the beginners Muay Thai class, and if it was too easy you could move up to intermediate. It's no problem to work on your grappling here. Join the morning mma class which focuses on ground and submission techniques followed by live grappling. See you soon, TMT staff
If you want a fight
can you also fight western boxing and if you can do you earn money
as you do in a muay thai fight
sometime i would like to stay 3 month i know only western boxing and i have a feve fights would 1 month be Enoch training to have a muay thai fight if i am in fight ting shape when i come
sorry the bad spelling
Boxing fights are not that common in Phuket I but have seen a handful. One can be arranged at a local stadium or at one of the BBQ smoker fights.
You earn money for a stadium fight but not for an amateur smoker fight. Those are to gain experience and test yourself. One month is enough time to get prepared and have a fight. You will need to arrive at camp very fit so you can make the most of your month of training here. You will have to be assesed by our head trainer Phet as well. If you fight you will be matched up against someone of similar skill level. A smoker fight might be a good option for you. You can see some of our previous BBQ smoker fights on youtube.com Thanks, TMT staff
hi, im thinking of coming to your camp in a few months, i have a few questions to ask
i have a morning rountine that i dont want to change much, i run 16 km mon-fri by the time i arrive ill be running 20 km mon-fri, this is fine as i can just do on my own then i do 1-2 hours of weights, deadlifts 140 kg 10x5,cheat curls 80kg 10x5, bench press 100kg 10x5 , clean 70 kg 10x1 and push press 10x5, bent over row 100kg, mon, wen, fri by tim i arrive the weighs should be increased, is this kind of weight lifting routine allowed in your gym or do i have to follow a routine from the weight gym instructor tues and thurs, i do ab work hanging leg raises 10x5, ab wheel 10x5and side bends with 15 kg plate 5x5 also for the group training in the morning i wouldnt be wanting to do after my weights currently i do four 10 min rounds on a heavy bag with 2 min rest in between each round of punching mon, wens, kicking, tues, thurs and knees and elbows fri, would i be able to work on a bag alone for the hour, or would i be intruding on a set routine after this id like to do one one one training i want to be doing muay thai, training all attacks on the pads for the hour and 15 mins , currently i do 6 rounds of 5 mins with 1 min rest in between rounds this is my conditioning now, ill be adding the one on one sessions when i come to your gym i plan to be doing twelve 5 mins with 1 min rest betwen each one by june for the first one on one training then one one training to train mma for the hour and 15 mins my goal for coming to thailand is to train and fight as much as i can in both muay thai and mma example of a time table would be 6:30- 8:00am run 30 min break 8:30-10:30am weights 30 min break 11:00-12:00 heavy bag work 30 min break 12:30pm-1:45pm one on one 2:00pm-3:00pm one on one so this routine is based on if i paid 20000 baht for 40 private lessions , that would give me 2 private lessions a day for 5 days of the week for 4 weeks, so paying this way per month for private lessons , would i still be able to use the weight gym and use a heavy bag in the morning while the group training is on thanks for your time and reading my post, im just trying to figure out a routine i can do while at your camp and the cost with out changing my moring run,weights and heavy bag work
You are definitely welcome to stick to your own weight routine. Peter our in house bodybuilder is there to offer guidance and instruction to those that want it. Once you are signed up for training you can use the weight room and heavy bags at will. It would not be intruding on a class as long as you chose an out of the way spot a little ways away from the group class. You can purchase private 1on 1 training with the trainer of your choice, so this will not be a problem. If you are signed up for only privates you will still need to pay gym fees for usage of the weights, bags, group sessions ect. VIP training is 34,000 for one month. That will give you access to two group sessions per day and two privates per day, and free use of the weights, bags etc. If you have any more questions please feel free toemail email@example.com. Best regards, TMT staff
Iam just wondering for someone with no muay thai experience with in a 2 month time frame of training with you if it would be possible to fight? and also if for example skill wise was considered ready for a fight but stamina wise was not in your opinion, but really wanted to fight, could it still be possible to fight or would i not be allowed to fight? Thank you and sorry if it was a confusing or stupid question.
