The Rawai Muay Thai Kids Fund sponsors young children who train at the camp. The gym provides for housing, food, clothing and daily training. The young athletes fight every month and go to school on the weekends.
Our goal at Rawai Muay Thai is to provide a healthy and safe environment for poor children who want to learn Muay Thai, the Thai national sport. It is the dream of many young children to become Muay Thai superstars. We don’t necessarily strive to make superstars but rather focus on teaching the young athletes to become good people, stressing the importance of core values: discipline, respect, loyalty, teamwork.
Tuk, the owner of Rawai Muay Thai, knows first-hand what these young boxers’ life is like. He grew up in this area, his family was poor. His father was a fisherman and his mother sold food int he market. As a young boy Tuk was sent to Bangkok to fight. Thai boxing has given him a good life and now it’s time to give back.

We also support other gyms in villages and communities nearby with their effort to provide a safe environment for children to learn the sport of Muay Thai and the values that go with it. Gyms in Thailand do not get any government help. So it is up to us to help them raise the next generation of boxers.
