Tiger Muay Thai

7:30 a.m -8:00 a.m. Running Program annd Warm-up

Running Program

Muay Thai fighters run. Plain and simple. Running builds stamina, endurance and cardio conditioning to prepare for a 5-round Muay Thai Fight. Tiger Muay Thai trainers are @ the camp waiting for the guests every morning and afternoon. (Running Program is not mandatory, but suggested)

Trainers will take guests on a variety of runs from 3 to 7 km near the camp. From flat roads to hills and up and down mountains past Buddhist temples and waterfalls. Run at your own pace, but the trainers will keep an eye on you.

Warm-up includes skipping rope, tire bounce, shadow boxing, and stretching, and getting hands wrapped before beginning the morning training session. Proper warm-up is the best way to prevent injury and an important part of the process of training Muay Thai.

8:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m.

Muay Thai Technique Class

There is no better way to learn effective Muay Thai techniques than getting in the ring with the Muay Thai trainers and learning a variety of techniques. This is not a workout. This is slow and deliberate training of proper technique for beginners to advanced students. After practicing and learning the Muay Thai techniques, you will use those techniques in the ring on pads with trainers, sparring with guests and trainers, ad on the training stations and bags.

* Water Break

9:00 a.m. - 10:30 a.mMuay Thai Training in the ring, on the pads, and on the bags with trainers.

The heart of the training session begins at 8:30 a.m. and is part of a weekly focus schedule that concentrates on all the important aspects of learning correct Muay Thai. Sparring (Boxing) is on Monday-Wednesday-Friday Mornings. Guests will spar with trainers and other guests @ 75% power and 75% speed. This is not about showing off or hurting your sparring partner, but understanding the rythem and footwork, head movement, bob-n-weave and other techniques that make for good boxing which is an important part of your overall Muay Thai training.

Tuesday - Thursday - Saturday is C.O.R.E conditioning that concentrates on building good abdominal strength and conditioning. The trainers will use a variety of old-school Muay thai and modern techniques lie medicine ball training, sit-up, crunches, etc to help guests build the six-pack ab muscles that are the trademark of a good Muay Thai fighter.

Depending on which training program you are in, you will be expected to train 3-5 rounds on the Muay Thai pads alone with the trainer. He will make adjustments to your technique if needed, but the focus of the pad work is to keep you moving and prepared for offense and defense.

* Water Break

You will also train together on the bags doing a variety of old-school and modern techniques for training hands, knees, elbows and kicks on the pads. The trainers are active throughout the entire session and will often change the amount of time you train from 3-minute rounds and 1-minute break to 5-minute rounds. If you are preparing for a fight, being able to compete Five-5-minute rounds will better prepare you for a 5-three-minute round fight in the ring.

Be prepared. The trainers are constantly changing aspects of the training to better prepare you and teach you traditional Muay Thai. Expect to train in the Muay Thai Clinch circle and other old-school techniques which have been the staple of training for Muay Thai fighters for centuries. One thing you can ber certain of is that after 3+ hours of training, you will know you have been training hard.

10:30 -11:00 a.mCool Down and stretching

Loosen tightened muscles and help prevent cramps and then head over for a electrolyte drink and protein shake at he Tiger Grill.

For those of our guests that want even more one-on-one training with their favorite trainer, we offer private lessons available with all of our uay thai and MMA trainers @ the camp. One-on-one lessons are the best way to dramatically improve your skill level, and a great way to show appreciation to the trainer of your choice.

hi, im just curious if its possible to do the running AND the technique class in the morning as they seem to go on at the same time on the program.....?

Sawasdee Dylan,

Yes, some guests go for a run at 7:00 a.m. so they can participate in Technique class. Afternoon runs can be very hot and humid, so the afternoon running program is smaller and more people in technique class.

thanks a lot in advance much appreciated
TMT Staff
Sawasdee Eric,

Please try and book at least 1 month in advance.
No, have a look at the Basic Thai language page on the website and that should be enough to get you started for courtesy.
We have healthy food and supplements, however Protein Bars and Protein powder are a little more expensive here in Thailand.
Lots of fruits to keep you full and healthy with vitamins and minerals.

Any questions, you can contact me at info@tigermuaythai.com

Sawasdee Chok Dee, i was hoping to come over for around 3-6 months sometime in the next year, and was wondering if there was any deals possible for the delux and vip deals for these periods of time? as i was hoping to get daily 1 on 1 along with the regular group sessions for the duration of my stay
TMT Staff
Sawasdee Kial,

Yes, for long-term guests we have discounts available in 3-6 month packages, private sessions, and regular training.
Please contact info@tigermuaythai.com for booking and discount information based on your length of stay at training camp.

Chok Dee



I'm sure this question gets asked a lot.  If I took the VIP package do the 1:1 sessions apply to MMA and the Strength & Conditioning Coach, as well as the Muay Thai Trainers?

If not, what is the price for 1:1 sessions with an MMA Trainer and the Strength & Conditioning Coach?


TMT Staff
Sawasdee jason,

private training sessions with Peter are the same as private lessons with a Muay Thai trainer and are inter-changable. Only private lessons with BJJ / MMA trainers are separate.

10 pack private lessons: 5500 baht
1 hour 15 minutes of technique and pad training.


if you take the VIP or deluxe package. Do you get an EXTRA two group sessions? Or is it: 2 group sessions
       2 technique class and
       1 or 2 one-on-one training

Thank you

TMT Staff
Sawasdee Sander,

The VIP and Deluxe programs offer all the regular sessions + 1 or 2 private sessions per day.

Sorry, No, not 4 group sessions.

Chok Dee



I'm keen on doing the body building with peter but his classes all seem to be on at the same time as other classes at TMT, when is the body building?

TMT staff
Sawatdee krup Edric,

The gym is open all day. Peter is in the room 7:30-10:30 and 3:30-6:30. Often times he can be found in there at other times too. Peter is available for private lessons as well.


TMT staff

Well, I guess I'm all set! Payed for my training via paypal, and Kaylee confirmed gym taxi pick up on the 14th of April as well as my room @  the Nature House...all that's left to say is, SEE YOU NEXT WEEK!!!!!!

hi TMT staff 

I'm booked in to train for 3weeks in july and had intended to do the VIP package as i have a fight lined up 2 weeks after i return do u think the VIP package would be my best bet to have me ready for my fight?
coming from the states and wondering what is the minimum suggested time for training.  It seems like a week is barely enough time to get into it and a month is too long for me to be away from my job.  Any thoughts?

Will E.
There is no minimum time requirement. You are correct it takes a little time to get acclimated and settle in. If you cannot get away for a month, how about a shorter stay of 2-3 weeks?
