    "Trainer Karoon was very good and patient, and corrected many of my bad habits and mistakes. I had 3 rounds of pad work and 1-to-1 training for punch/elbow/kick/knee. Thanks to him I learned a lot during my short session."

    "Will and crew were awesome. I learned some great new techniques and refined some old. The trainers are great fun and light hearted, the gym very well set up and catered for us (over 40 people) without being too crowded. Left some sweat & blood there!"

    "One thing we love about Emerald Gym is the fact it doesn't try to persuade you or scream "look at me", it doesn't have to. It simply speaks for itself via the caliber of trainers, the skill, strength and standard of the participants and the day-by-day improvement in your own technique and fitness.From the outset my sister and I were completely in awe of the exceptional skill level that surrounded us and only days later learnt we were in the company of legendary fighters, namely founding owner/operator Wilfried Montagne - a 3 x French and European Champion!To watch Wilfried in action and train alongside him is really something else and just one of the many joys of Emerald Muay Thai Gym.As newcomers we were very impressed at how swiftly the Thai trainers assessed our skill level, gave us specific, simple instruction and challenging yet achievable rounds in the ring! And thank you fellas for always letting us win ;-)So what can we say - just get yourself to Emerald, join a 2-hr group session, line up alongside Wilfried and his team and go for it. We'll be back!"

    "Great place to train Muay Thai. Trainers are friendly and give time to students fairly. The owner/manager Wilfried will also give time to as many students as he can. They could do with some newer equipment as the equipment was quite worn when we went. Take your own gloves if possible."

    "This month I visited the Emerald Gym for training Muay Thai. The gym is very well equipped with many punching bags and two big fighting rings. The atmosphere is very nice and friendly - the trainers always have time for some jokes :)! I am clearly a beginner but still the trainers would take their time for me, unlike many other commercial gyms where only big fighters get attention. I can definitely recommend going there!"
