My friend and I were both excited to try out authentic Muay Thai in Thailand. We were lucky to have two instructors who had real fight experience in the ring, and the entire class was real-time translated by interpreter Fluke. The training took place on the amazing rooftop of Lobby Rod Fai Fah Apartment Building, which is possibly the best workout and kickboxing training location you can ask for in life. There were only three of us in the class, which felt very much like a personal training. Throughout our training, our instructor pushed us to work harder and improve our technique with his humorous teaching style. In the end, we were both so tired just by moving and striking with our bodies, but my friend and I were excited to continue our Muay Thai journey. It was worth every baht.

Plein les yeux, super!

Had a great time, very educational and engaging, everything from the local market visit to the actual cooking class. Also wow, after eating my green curry, tom yum, padthai and mango sticky rice— I was so full they all came out delicious! I highly recommend this class :) Awesome experience and awesome people! Give them a ring if at the beginning you can locate the school (find the domino’s pizza in the area and make a turn at the small alley/lane way)

I really enjoyed this class. They struck the right balance between helping us prep so we didn't waste time and ensuring we got to work through all the steps. The food was delicious. The room was silent as we all savoured the best pad thai we'd ever eaten. Portion sizes were sensible. Market visit was ok. would thoroughly recommend.

This was one of the highlights of my time in Thailand! I absolutely loved the full experience of shopping in the water market, cooking it under the dynamic leadership of May and then eating the scrumptious meal we made. Just outstanding!

we had the best time learning the basics of Muay Thai during our 1 x hour session. Highly recommended .
