Located in the beautiful little town of Pai, Sitjemam Muay Thai provides personal training to a wide range of students, from beginners to professionals. During the stay, students will not only train with capable trainers, but also have the opportunity to experience the authentic culture of Northern Thailand in one of the places that still maintains the real Thai spirit. Sitjemam Muay Thai partners with local agencies to offer students with various activities during their non-training time.
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.
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.
Participants will train twice every day, 2 hours in the morning and 2 hours in the afternoon. While beginners are introduced to the principles of Muay Thai and strive to improve fighting and athletic ability, advanced students will seek improvements in technique, stamina, and power.
Muay Thai is a combat sport that uses stand-up striking, along with various clinching techniques. This physical and mental discipline which includes combat on shins is known as "the art of eight limbs" because it is characterized by the combined use of fists, elbows, knees, shins, being associated with a good physical preparation that makes a full-contact fighter very efficient. Muay Thai became widespread internationally in the twentieth century, when practitioners defeated notable practitioners of other martial arts.
Muay Thai can be traced back to the 16th century, developed from the fighting style of the famous fighter Nai Khanomtom. Its ancestor is Muay Boran (or ancient boxing), which in the 1930s was formalized with rules and equipment influenced by Western boxing.
Sitjemam Muay Thai Pai represents Muay Farang project for Northern Thailand, offering the highest standards of training, managing and promotion in the country.
Muay Farang has in these last few years become synonymous with a new concept of training Muay Thai fighters, aiming to raise the excellence of foreign athletes in this sport.
Being part of the Muay Farang family has enabled Sitjemam Muay Thai to promote their fighters in some of the top events and promotions in Thailand and abroad (Toyota Marathon, Kunlun Fight, and WMF World Championships, among others), achieving results unseen at any of the other camps operating in this region of Thailand.
Muay Farang-promoted boxers are often guests of Sitjeman Muay Thai; and this provides an even better opportunity to learn from some of the most exciting active Nak Muay (Boxers).
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.

"I'd previously boxed before, but had never given muay Thai a thought, but that soon changed. Mam and em are great, picked me up from my hostel and drove to the gym for a private session. Nestled amongst the paddy fields and surrounding mountains my only regret is that I couldn't stay longer. I'll be back soon I hope!"
"As a sportinstructeur never seen such pasionated people. Serieusly combined with humor. And seeking for everybody there limit and experience. The husband is a former trainer of the Dutch team eg. And the wife a highly decorated teacher and referee. Go try it. Also good for couples!"

"Fantastic experience. I attended private 1 to 1 sessions with Em who clearly has a huge wealth of fighting experience and knowledge. His good heart and sense of humor made each session thoroughly enjoyable and his English skills and attention to detail meant nothing was lost in translation. Sitjemam would be my number 1 place to really learn real Muay Thai in Thailand."
