Muay Thai

Muay Thai is a martial arts discipline that utilizes the use of the body parts at weapons. These parts of the body include the head, the elbows, the feet, the fists, the shins, and the knees. Together, these parts of the body compromise the Na-wa arwud. However, nowadays Muay Thai fights no longer permit the fighter to use the head. In attacking and defending, the fighter employs the use of grappling or what is also called the clinch.

The techniques of Muay Thai are divided into two categories: the Luk Mai or the minor techniques and the Mae Mai or the major techniques. The very reason why Muay Thai is held to be distinct from the other variants of Martial Arts is because it utilizes whole body movements, such as the hip being either rotated fully or partially for every block, kick and punch that is executed. Below you will find lists of several different techniques and moves the various body parts that are utilized.

Course preparation

Suwit Gyms Muay Thai training programs are suitable for everyone at any level. The trainers aim to teach and improve on your skills from traditional and fundamental techniques to professional fighting levels.

Located 867 kilometers south of Bangkok, Phuket island is Thailands largest island. The island is shaped like an irregular pearl and measures approximately 21 kilometers long. Connected to the mainland by a causeway, it has a coastline fringed with white sandy beaches and quiet coves, bathed by the clear blue waters of the Andaman Sea and set against a backdrop of green hills, coconut groves and rubber plantations.

Phuket formerly derived its wealth from tin and rubber, and has a rich and colorful history. The island was on one of the major trading routes between India and China, and had been frequently mentioned in foreign ships logs. The Portuguese, Dutch, English and French were also commonly found trading in and around Phuket.

Today, the island is Thailand's largest wine and spirits market outside of metropolitan Bangkok. Phuket Island is Southeast Asia's most celebrated vacation destination and boasts Thailand's largest accumulation of per capita wealth. It is also considered the yachting and golf capital of Thailand. The island's unspoiled beaches and unique cultural attractions contribute to its world-renowned appeal.

Blessed by nature, the smiling hospitality of its people, and supported by superb tourism facilities, Phuket is one of the worlds premier tropical resorts. Palm-fringed beaches, an island-studded sea, modern accommodations, delicious seafood, numerous sporting and leisure opportunities and, of course, year-round sunshine, make Phuket the perfect recipe for a truly memorable holiday.

    "If you want to train Muay Thai without all the hype and pizzaz, then this is the place for you. Old school, small student to instructor ratio, great training. Whether your a beginner or trained everyone can get something from Suwit. I met some really cool folks, as we all stayed at the off site rooms, which were clean and comfortable. Already planning our return for 2016."

    "I have trained at 2 different Muay Thai gyms in Phuket and visited all the Muay Thai camps in Phuket. In my experience "Suwet (Suwit)" Gym is by far the best. Most importantly, it has real Thai boxers that train there which is a sure sign you are getting authentic training. Most other gyms dont! The trainers are used to dealing with foreigners so they can get the best from you, whether you are a complete beginner or a seasoned fighter. The owners of the Suwit Gym are an extremely helpful and friendly family who have your interests at heart. All the trainers and Muay Thai fighters are very friendly and I can say that! Thank you Kittisa and everybody else at Suwit Gym."

    "Suwit Gym was a really good place to train with a great and friendly atmosphere. You are amongst professional Thai Boxers and train along beside them, which is quite motivating. The trainers all have boxing experience and are very helpful. The gym also has a shop and a restaurant so you can find nearly every thing you need with little effort."

    "My stay at Suwit Muay Thai was nothing short of great! The instructors were patient and willing to teach and I truly benefited from the one-on-one style of their teaching. I particularly appreciated the street fighting aspects of Muay Thai which incorporated the use of elbows and knees. My greatest thanks to Bang, Sam, Run, Muad and Wan Mai who had trained me at one point in time or another. I would like to thank Kittisak too, the manager of the Suwit Muay Thai, who went all out to help me settle down and even teach me how to ride the motorcycle."
