Great place to learn Muay Thai and get fit! I felt so much better one week of training. Wish I could've stayed longer!
Bathrooms and shower rooms are outdoors in a separate building. Lots of mosquitoes and spiders in the evening. Wish the holes in the walls could be blocked.

I really enjoyed my months training at Team Quest Thailand, Chiang Mai.
The trainers were great! I was a complete beginner (a part from some western boxing training) and Kru Ni took a lot of time in teaching me, especially with my kicks and knees. He took a bit of getting used to but he's a fantastic trainer and a good laugh when you get to know him.
I stayed at the onsite dorm room which I would not recommend. The training was great but the rooms at the gym were average. People in my training class were staying at a much nicer guesthouse close by for the same price. The bathrooms are tired and need new locks, at least. The walls in the rooms could do with a lick of paint. And for it being a dorm room there was no fridge, even a small one to keep our water in? It wouldn't normally bother me at all but for the money we were paying I'd have expected a bit better of the accommodation.
All the trainers, MMA and BJJ, made me feel welcome as well even though I never trained with them.
I would highly recommend people to go and train here but stay elsewhere.

I spent the last three weeks in Chiang Mai learning Muay Thai with very good Thai trainers and Brazilian jiu jitsu with a black belt professor Silvio cesar peixoto is a great coach and really good at breaking down techniques!. It was a great experience and a very nice team. I definitely will be back!
Team Quest has created a great environment for learning and getting into great shape and is accommodating for fighters of all experience levels. The Muay Thai classes offer a lot of one-on-one time with the coaches with a lot of pad work. Every student gets a chance to hit pads with a kru and the pad work is catered to the student's skill level. That makes this class great for beginners and experienced guys.
The BJJ class is phenomenal. Professor Bruno is a great coach and really good at breaking down techniques. The class has many different skill levels and belts so there is someone for everybody to roll with. This place is definitely worth checking out if you are stopping in Chiang Mai.

Definitely worth it. Premium or VIP seats are 600 and 400 for normal seats but during the first fight, they are definitely worth it. The fighters are respectful and fight to the end which was not the case at more expensive or serious venue in BKK. Not that many locals but some comments in English which help a little bit. The fights are geared towards tourists but as there is not much else to see in CNX apart from the night markets it is a must see.
I train kickboxing and self-defense (Krav Maga) at home and have had some instruction in Muay Thai as well. While visiting Thailand, I, of course, wanted to experience Muay Thai training. This facility is not fancy but it was clean and seemed to be well-run. The couple of people I talked to that were spending several weeks there training seemed very pleased with their experience and training. I had a long conversation with a local ex-pat who trains there regularly and she was very enthusiastic about the training.
She obviously knew her stuff, as well. The instructors for the beginners class were nice but to the point. They ran a well-organized, intense, intentional class teaching basic skills and drills. The language barrier is somewhat of an issue, but not a huge deal. It was a great experience and one I would repeat if I had the opportunity. Check out Team Quest.

I have been here at Team Quest for about three weeks now and I have to say its the perfect place for you to train no matter what your level. There are some serious killers in the gym but they are awesome training partners and have great control. The facilities are awesome and the management is excellent. This place is amazing.
