Many fighters from all over the world want to fight a Muay Thai fight in Thailand. We have such requests every week and for this reason we would like to give you some information and tips for this goal. Basically everyone can get into the ring. But our gym aims to offer our customers a high standard. We also expect this if someone wants to fight for our gym. On the one hand, we want to offer the audience the admission fees of good quality in Muay Thai. And whoever fights for us becomes a Punch it Fighter that we can proudly represent. So we don’t just let our customers in the ring to generate customer loyalty, but from the conviction that it is the right time. When is the right time? In our view, it is when you are convinced that you can win every fight. This is not only true in Thailand, with this principle you should always take on a challenge. If you don’t feel it yourself, you have to work harder on yourself. Is the opinion that you have to train twice as much, but also build up mental strength. The mental strength is exactly the point that usually decides in Thailand about victory and defeat. Thai Muaythai fighters usually grow up with this sport and are extremely relaxed. So they are able to fight over 5 rounds at 3 minutes at a high level. With many foreign amateur fighters, the tension and nervousness leave the air out after two or three rounds. Most of the time, our customers are also physically and physically superior thanks to the intensive training and yet they cannot always win.
Here are a few tips on what will make it easier and easier for us and you to successfully enter the ring in Thailand. If you want to fulfill this dream, think about it before you book the trip. First choose a period when you know that you are in good shape and stress free. Combat preparation takes at least 3 weeks and even better 4 weeks. Arriving with the thoughts of relaxation, vacation and party is out of place here. You should consider this time as a professional fighter and you work 6 days a week. These three to four weeks are hard work. In the first week you have to get used to the climate (in Koh Samui on average 32.5 degrees). Usually there is also a longer time difference of 4-8 hours. Therefore, the first four days are not recommended to start with intensive training. After that, you train for 2 hours twice a day. It is a challenge for the body, as you usually do not do this in normal professional life. The advantage, however, is that, in addition to the training units, you can relax well through the stress-free holiday routine, massages and the sea. After about 1.5 weeks you have arrived correctly and acclimatized to everything and fills up fit. So there is still a week where you can work on technique, stamina and mental strength. In the third week there is already the fight where you do not train the day before like on the day of the fight.
Here are a few more requirements that are helpful for a successful undertaking:
- Have an amateur fight with or without a schooner in your home.
- Before arrival, complete 3-4 training units (Muaythai – Kickboxing) per week over several months.
- Do 2-3 running units (4-5 km) per week.
- Watch a few fights from Amateur – Muaythai Fights.
Here are three examples of fights of what you can expect:
Ultimately, the most important thing for us is that our fighter customers can have a good experience and get out of the ring healthy. For this reason, we do not support fighters without courteous experience who are over 40 years old. The health risk is too great for us here.
We are looking forward to your inquiry and to support you soon with us.
