Ao- Koei Beach Muay Thai Camp is a very intimate training camp located directly on an endless beach in total nature. Everything here is home-made. We train seriously, eat amazing food, and live among local people, far from all the tourist industry.
Here you are not dozen of foreigners packed together in a place specialized for tourists and where everybody speaks English. Here, you are in total immersion in a very special paradise where local fishermen live normally: you will not meet any other tourists around. This is Thailand and its lush natural beauty as off-the-beaten-path as it gets.
The training is very serious, this is for passionate athletes. You are here to produce drastic progress, and transform yourself completely. I receive only a few guests at a time, to protect this haven of peace that I love so much, and to give the most meaningful and authentic experience possible. See you soon!
Solo received his selected students in his own home, located on an immense virgin beach that goes on for 40 kilometers, and surrounded by 4000 square kilometers of pristine jungle, mountains, rivers, and waterfalls, all completely off-the-beaten-path. Travelers already experienced with Thailand will appreciate to have access to this place and its people.
The place and its surrounding are still very rural, unspoiled by tourism, and offer an ambiance unlike anywhere else in the country. Each guest enjoys to stay in a private bungalow directly on the beach. A choice of wood construction with fridge and kitchenette, or modern hotel-room style will be provided.
This is a 10-day intensive training designed to produce unparalleled results in Muay Thai and Western Boxing. You will learn how to be technically correct and compact, how to create power, speed, timing, and explosiveness, how to lay traps, and how to evaluate, adjust, and work angles. At the end of these 10 days, you will have a knowledge that will stay with you for the rest of your life, and allow you to develop by yourself without relying on classes and trainers anymore.
The daily training consists of:
Private closed-door session on technique, ring generalship and coordination. You add a new layer of expertise every morning, and integrate it to the repertoire learned the day before.
Fight camp, including sparring, where you directly put in practice what you have worked on in the morning. In the afternoon session, local Thais can join the training as well.
Solo supervises all of your progress himself from start to finish. To be able to truly help you, Solo only accepts six athletes at a time. You will get the most drastic results if you give yourself fully to the process for the entire 10 days.
Ao-Koei Beach in the province of Phang-Nga in Southern Thailand is an inhabited national park (people lived there since generations). It is 200 kilometers with a direct taxi ride from Phuket International Airport (HKT).
Large meals are prepared at the gym two times a day by Miss Por and Miss Da. You will discover many authentic traditional dishes from Thailand, but also specialties distinctive of this southern province only. The table is very abundant to compensate the intense training regimen. Meals are prepared with love and at home, with fresh produce from the market (and often directly from the land) that Por and Da go get by themselves every day. The meals are not on a restaurant. Lunch is served at 11:00 a.m. and dinner at 7:00 p.m at an additional cost.
During the week: in between training sessions, enjoy the many breathtaking beaches that surround us, cool down at one of the superb waterfalls around the camp, explore the nature by foot or by bike, go get a massage, go for coffee and internet, get a feel of the local life by visiting surrounding villages, or nap in your hammock with a cold coconut to the sound of the waves crushing on the shore.
Week-End: Embark on a diving trip to Surin Islands (ranked in the top-10 worldwide), a Boat trip to Similan and Pratong Islands, go on a fishing expedition or an extreme jungle trek… or even a party week-end in commercial Phuket (200km away), Krabi (150km), Phang-Nga (120km) or Ranong (100km). All of the above you can easily organize from the village.
Expeditions: Once in a while, spontaneous expeditions are organized from the camp. Like spending the night in Yaa’s native island, dining on the beach, cooking the lobsters, shrimps and crabs we had just caught. Precious experiences.
