Accommodation

Accommodation at boxing camp

Sitjemam Muay Thai offers comfortable rooms located just steps away from the Muay Thai ring. The rooms are 22 sqm ones, newly built and finely decorated with king-size bed, en suite bathroom with hot shower, free Wi-Fi, and free use of the BBQ/kitchen.

This is a clean, secure, and comfortable solution with the bonus of meeting new people who are here for the same reasons - plus its also a lot more difficult to skip a session when you can hear everybody training!

Rooms are offered at a special all-year-round price for our students - perhaps the best value-for-money accommodation here in Pai that can also be shared among up to three persons per room upon request.

Guesthouses near the camp with the Sitjemam special discount

  • Students can also opt to stay at one of the guetsthouses near the camp. Special discounts for Sitjemam students applied.

Homestay with a local Thai host family for the genuine Northern Thai experience

This is the newest option that Sitjemam Muay Thai Pai is now offering to students who intend to fully experience a local Northern Thai style way of living. Enjoy the unique experience of a homestay with a friendly family in the village.

Accommodation is obviously simple but will allow students to get in touch with Thai culture/lifestyle and learn the Thai language. This is a truly memorable experience with limited availability, so please contact Sitjemam Muay Thai early to discuss this option.

Muay Boran

Muay Boran is the ancient form, the origin of modern Muay Thai. It contains a number of regional styles, such as Muay Chaiya, Muay Korat, Muay Lopburi, and Muay Thasao. Although an ancient style, Muay Boran is still widely practiced in Thailand, and it was featured extensively in the popular Hollywood movie Ong Bak.

Muay Boran focuses on fast, hard attacks, and an economy of energy. Every attack is looked at in terms of its payoff of physical damage for energy used. As a result, knees and elbows play a large part in Muay Boran, as they are capable of inflicting serious damage with a minimum output.

Course preparation

Training camp is designed to accommodate the needs and levels of all students, either if you are a beginner seeking to understand more about Muay Thai, or professionals striving to improve significantly your techniques, or even if you are simply trying to get fit. As a result, a research into the martial art, as well as some build-up physical training before setting out for Sitjiemam Muay Thai Pai is a good preparation. Note that every day training will start with warm up run.
