Daily schedule Monday to Saturday

Sumalee Boxing Gym runs two 2 hours group Muay Thai training sessions daily Monday to Saturday. The classes take place at 07:30 and 16:00 to ensure the weather is at its coolest and to allow for maximum relaxation and recovery in between sessions. Saturday morning training often takes place on nearby picturesque beaches (leave the camp at 07:00).

Training styles

Typical group training session

  • Bag work - developing strength and technique for neck, hands, knees, elbows, and legs
  • Clinching - unique to Muay Thai and particularly important for those students who wish to fight
  • Cool down - Particularly important aspect of the work out as it reduces the possibility of muscle cramping
  • Muay Thai technique - 5 x 3 minute rounds on the pads working individually with a trainer to improve technique and build speed, power, and endurance
  • Stretching - (neck, arm, shoulder, hip, leg, ankle)
  • Shadow boxing
  • Sparring - focusing on speed, footwork and endurance rather than power
  • Warm up - e.g. running, skipping, tyre bounce

Improving cardio-vascular fitness

Improving cardio-vascular fitness is a key component of a Muay Thai training programme. Most students achieve this by supplementing their training with running sessions, increasing the distances during the course of their stay. Many choose to run before the early morning group session as this is the coolest part of the day. There is a choice of running routes of various lengths and intensities directly from the gym.

Muay Thai private lessons

Many students choose to complement their group classes with private one-on-one sessions with one or more of our instructors to maximise their training and focus on personal goals. Private lessons are available outside of group training times and last one hour.
