Sumalee Boxing Gym in Phuket offers traditional Muay Thai training and much more. Sumalee Boxing Gym is the newest Muay Thai training camp in Phuket. It sets a new standard for Muay Thai training facilities on the island and is the only traditional muay thai training camp with a swimming pool on-site.
The muay thai training camp is located in the centre of Phuket in an unspolit location on the east coast, behind one of the most Iconic Chinese temples on the island. Students will have the opportunity to have a unique Thai cultural experience with Muay Thai at its core. They will get to see areas of Phuket most visitors to the island never even knew existed and the gym’s central location means that all the major tourist attractions on the island are easily accessible. Surin Beach, Bang Tao Beach, Nai Yang Beach and Nai Thon Beach are all within easy reach of the gym. The world famous Laguna area of Phuket is within 8 minutes drive of the camp.
The gym’s name and training style was inspired by Sor Sumalee Gym in Ubon Ratchathani, Esaan. Our training manager, Oron (fighting name Deachkalon sor Sumalee) and many of our trainers started their Muay Thai careers in Ubon Ratchathani. They bring to the new Sumalee Boxing Gym the Muay Thai style developed and practiced in Esaan tradition over hundreds of years.
Sumalee Boxing Gym provides the highest standard of Muay Thai training in phuket. All of our trainers are selected on the basis of their personal fight history and their competence in teaching. Most have had experience of teaching Muay Thai in other countries and have previously worked as trainers in some of the best gyms in Thailand. They all have a good grounding in spoken English.
Sumalee Boxing Gym will appeal to those students who wish to practice Muay Thai in a traditional Thai setting.
Sumalee Boxing Gym is set within a large coconut and banana plantation, offering a very natural and spacious setting to train in. Within the vast grounds of the muay thai training camp there is: a well equipped gym; accommodation for students; a swimming pool; space for playing football and other games; a restaurant/food preparation area (we offer a nutritional programme for those students who want it); communal space with pool table and home theatre; and a running track for pre-training warm up. The quiet lanes that surround the gym are perfect for longer training runs.
All aspects of muay thai training at the Sumalee Boxing Gym are the responsibility of Oron (fighting name Deachkalon) and his team of Thai trainers. Oron is a renowned Thai fighter with an international reputation and regularly appears in magazine articles and on TV shows. He achieved the highest ranking at Lumpinee stadium where he fought many times as well as being a regular at Ratchadermeon. He is the current UK Superfly 59 Champion.
