Just want to say a big thank you to everybody involved at RAWAI MUAY THAI. The owners Tuk and Diana have done an amazing job with their gym, the facilities are modern and very clean with the luxury of world class training from their many living legend trainers, everybody on camp is so welcoming and helpful from the office staff to the cleaners, Fon the masseuse, and Safeena in the onsite restaurant for looking after me on my trip. I have visited pretty much most of Southern Thailand over the years and can hand on heart say I have fallen in love with Rawai Muay Thai in Khao Lak and will definitely be returning in the very near future, so if you are looking for world class traditional Muay Thai training in paradise with amazing people and great food then Rawai is definitely the place for you. Once again kob khun krup (thank you) to everyone at Rawai see you all again in October.



Michael’s Testimonial

Rawai Muay Thai trainers and student

Time to reflect on this trip. Well, what can I say? I’ve always wanted to spend a month in a Muay Thai camp and as of today I can proudly say I’ve done it. Four weeks of 4-5 hours training each day. I had the intention of coming here for the sole purpose of training with no side adventures or distractions and it couldn’t have gone better.

Looking back on all my photos shows what a time I’ve had at Rawai Muay Thai. I have trained with the best trainers anyone could ask for and each trained me on specific techniques each time I was in their ring as well as pushing me to improve myself and remember what I have learned.

I worked on my Muay Thai skill sets with Kru Lek as my mentor and my Muay Boran with Kru Padu: My brothers that I will miss the most and look forward to seeing again next year.

I was reunited with my dog, Bob and became family with Geoff and Starsky as well. I made sure they were well fed during our stay.

We also did have some fun fishing with Kru Fin and Kru On followed by a delicious meal the next day using the fish we caught. On top of that we celebrated my birthday and Christmas with BBQs that brought everyone together.

Best part of the trip? The same as last time, where I have met so many awesome people who I now call my friends. I will stay in contact with you all and hope to see you all again in future travels or at our next visit to Rawai Muay Thai.

Thank you Kru Tuk and Diana for having us once again at your camp and hope to see you again next year. I’ve had an absolute blast this month and couldn’t be happier that I spent this time here with you guys.

Dear Diana, Tuk, staff and kids of Rawai Muay Thai.

My wife, neice and I had the pleasure of staying at your camp from the 22nd November till 1st December 2016 and my only complaint was it wasn’t long enough. All of your staff were very friendly, helpful and always ready to assist when needed and are a credit to Rawai Muay Thai. You were always greeted with a smile.
I had the pleasure of participating in both group and VIP classes.   During the group classes again all the trainers ready to assist no matter what level of experience you had. I had Kru Lek & Wut for my VIP classes and both these guys are a credit to you.  I feel that not only did I receive there experience & knowledge but also there friendship.
I also had Kru Padu for my barber, yes he was nice enough to help me during my stay to keep my hair short and cut it for me. I’d highly recommend Padu as a barber.
I’ve since returned home to Australia (Sydney) and back to work. I’m now counting the days till I can return to your camp for a longer stay this time with my 11 year old son.
Diana I didn’t get the pleasure to meet but Tuk I did. Tuk help me with directions and info of  the school “Hands across the water ” in which we attended and we are in the process of sponsorship of one of the children.
If you guys ever think about sending one of your trainers to Sydney Australia for him to share his experience in one of our gyms let me know and see if we can plan something.
Diana and Tuk I can’t thank you enough, it was a pleasure and I’d certainly spread the word about your camp Rawai Muay Thai.
See you again soon.

Just wanted to let you know about how amazing it was to stay and train with your team for 2 weeks at Rawai Muay Thai.

Everyone is so friendly and easy going, all the teachers are so patient and I’ve learn so much from them. I have made some wonderful friends along this trip, I wish time wouldn’t fly so fast!

If you could pass my best wishes to all the staff and teachers, and let them know how grateful I am. Big THANK YOU to every single one of them.

I am back in Hong Kong now, getting ready for my trip to Europe.
But I am already planning my next trip to Thailand in October. Hopefully it will be possible and I will be back to train again with the whole team!

Until then, hope you and everyone in the camp is safe, in good health and happy.

Thank You Diana, and the team once again.

With warm regards.

Dear Diana / Khru Tuk,

It has been a few days since my return to Singapore from Rawai Muay Thai.  I have to say it was one of the best experience of my life!

Not only was the staff and trainers friendly and helpful, some went out of their way to make me feel welcome. Please send my warmest thanks to all of them.. yourself and Kru Tuk included.

The children were incredibly lively and show a passion for life some adults cannot match, I am sure in time they will be destined for great things in life!

I have personally picked up a lot of humbling experiences that will help me in my life and some that I will pass on to my children as well.  Besides losing weight, which was part of my personal goal, I have also made a lot of friends which I am grateful for. Muay Thai has also changed for myself from part of a hobby and self-defense skill to a way of life. Training Muay Thai is physical, but living Muay Thai as a way of life is a humbling experience.

Warmest regards to you and family,

Robert Sim

I’m finally a bit situated here in Hong Kong and I wanted to email you a personal “thank you” for all the help planning our trip, accommodations, etc… and just the amazing time Soo and I had a Rawai Muay Thai this past November and December!

This was my first trip to your country and to a traditional Muay Thai Camp in Thailand and words fall quite short of how much I loved your camp and all the things you guys are doing there at Rawai! I could tell right away that the camp was built by good people looking to do good things for their community and the people that come to train, study and learn the art of Muay Thai.

I don’t think I need to give too much praise about the training, trainers, the Muay Thai teaching and the AMAZING natural location that Khao Lak is, as many others have sung Rawai’s praises and it was one of the major reasons I decided on Rawai (a proper traditional Muay Thai Camp run by Thais away from the craziness of other locations ie. Phuket, Bangkok) but it was the other little things that Rawai does that really impressed me and earned my respect. The fact that the gym is so closely invested in the community of Khao Lak, that Tuk would promote and put on the Fight Night on November 28 to raise a lot of money for a much needed rain covering for the local school; the trip that a group of Rawai guys took to the local Orphanage in Takua Pa to drop off money and supplies raised from the camp’s on-site restaurant, Ring Five; the fact that the whole atmosphere of Rawai is family oriented not only for the Thais but promoted to all those who come from every corner of the globe to learn such a special martial art, this was all an unexpected and deeply pleasant discovery about Rawai Muay Thai! Thank you very much for the life experience and teaching you do there!

Looking forward already to my next trip back to Rawai in 2016!

Blessing to you and all those helping to run Rawai! We’ll be back soon!

All the best,

Natalia training with Dam, March 2015.

Me and my friends just returned from your camp  and I thought I will drop you an email to say how much we have enjoyed our stay. It was my first stay there and I absolutely loved it. Everyone is just so nice. The camp and accommodation are fantastic and I just cant praise the trainers enough. I came as a beginner and they were very patient and understanding. They are all great guys and work really hard. I am already planning my next stay as Muay Thai is a bit addictive 🙂 As soon as I know when can I come I will be in touch.

Take care and again thank you very much for organizing everything for us.

Good Morning, my name is Steve Blaschak. I attended your training camp from March 9 through March 23 of this year.  I just want to express my greatest appreciation and gratitude to you, your staff and trainers for making my stay such a fantastic time. I consider it an invaluable experience. Fin, Lun and Dam provided me with very highly skilled teachings and techniques that have left a lasting impression on me. I have nothing but high praises for them. I have returned to the states as I had been previously based in Afghanistan. I am continuing my training and sincerely look forward to a return to Khao Lak to train with you again. Attached is a picture of Dom and myself inspecting the new tattoo I got during my stay in Khao Lak. I’m sure you will recognize the Rawai Logo that I proudly wear and display whenever possible. Thank You again.

In January and February we trained at Rawai Muay Thai Camp.
Now back at home our skills are better and we are still impressed from the hospitality in Rawai camp. We learned a lot thanks to all trainers especially to Peck, Soleh and Dam for their really enthusiastic training lessons.
Thanks to all and we hope to see you again next year.

Greetings from Austria
