He is an Isaan Champion and Chiang Mai Champion. Tommy is well known throughout Chiang Mai for his “flying knee” technique. His signature Wai Khru dance he performs before each fight is in gratitude and respect to his trainer and mentor “Uncle”.

Champ is a proud member of the Thai Airforce, has completed over 300 fights and was previously awarded “Strongman Fighter” and “Good Fighter” in Anthong province. Champ used his fight winnings to pay for his education and most recently, to purchase a washing machine for his beloved mum.

Most know “Uncle” as Tommy’s mentor and trainer. But you may not know that Uncle used to work as a carpenter and started off as a streetfighter in Ratchaburi province. He trained champion channel 7 fighter Ong Chai Lung and Ban Sing and started one of Thailand’s only Women’s Muay Thai gym in Chiang Mai. After over one hundred fights and an eye injury, Uncle retired from professional fighting. We celebrate Uncle's birthday every year on Thailand’s Father’s Day since he doesn’t know his birthdate and he is well respected at Gym Bangarang.

"Great times in Chiang Mai!"

You can trust all the positive reviews. The training + the family feel are real. I had a wonderful time and wish I'd stayed a bit longer.

"I will be back again!!"

Muay Thai isn’t easy to learn but I love the way they taught us. Many guidance given to make sure every of us master the skills. Love the way they conducted the classes and the hospitality they’ve shown to make us feel like we’re home. Though the training periods were huffing and puffing but you can find out that your endurance does improve a lot after the camp. Love the environment of practice where you can jog around peacefully before the training started in the morning. Got to know many from other countries and was unwilling to leave on the last day.
