Considerate coaches - let them know when you are at your limit! Good pad training. Great food, coco banana shake can be recommended. Scooter rental available to stay mobile and to discover the rest of the island or Koh Yao Yai.
Some other students should take it slowly - not the teachers' fault, but everyone should be on the same page: this is supposed to be fun! :)

Having trained Kung Fu for 13 years, learning Thai-Boxing was a breath of fresh air. More than anything it was the high quality instructors and the location of this gym that made my experience so memorable. The gym headmaster is nationally reknowned with 300+ fights to his credit and his individual instructors all have a considerable number of fights and title belts of their own. My own instructor, Fon, is a first rate combat teacher. He knew when to be patient, when to criticize, when to push me to work harder and when to praise. I had similar experiences when the other instructors taught me. Though I signed up for one to one classes, I also joined in group lessons. At the time I went, there weren't many students so almost every group lesson had one to one instructor training. In the space of a week, I really felt like I'd learned a lot.
The location is superb! The gym is located right over a beach on the island of Koh Yao Noi which is well equipped for tourists but at the same time is peaceful and quiet. The weather was sunny most days with giant clouds rolling over the Andaman and a constant sea breeze that made the climate very pleasant. As the gym faces west, evening sunsets were spectacular.
In addition to the training and location, the facilities were very pleasant. The rooms were comfortable, there was a pool for swimming, a nice common area and pleasant kitchen staff who made delicious Thai food very quickly.
It was good value for money and made for one of the best martial arts training trips I've ever had.

Our 8 year old son really wanted to try Muay Thai. To be honest, as parents we were a little more doubtful and we shouldn't have been! He was warmly welcomed and had a great lesson! Can't wait to go back!

Had a great time training at KYN for a week. The trainers were awesome and looked forward to training each day. The accommodation was basic, but the focus is not on this, rather it was on the Muay Thai training. The included meals were a bonus and would come back just for the food!
