While trying to maintain some level of internet anonymity: my coach and wife have trianed at Bali MMA and we have good history with some of the staff from when they were living stateside. If you like surfing they managed to get quite a lot of beach time during their stay.

Thank you, I love the idea of learning to surf while on my downtime ( and maybe being able to train to Tiffany Van Soest ) but I also really want to stay in Thailand and try fighters, but I've only the pennies for one

I'm also planning my first trip for later this year and I can so relate to the struggles of picking one area (or even one gym) to commit to sight unseen. Add to this the reality that it may be the only time I ever get to afford flying over and the weight of these choices seems impossible.

For me what has helped was planning first, second, and third choices. Not just the gyms, but where to stay, how to travel between cities, etc. So I'm intending to go to my first choice and take a private or two at my second choice. If I need to make a switch I know what hotels are nearest rach (and if I feel the need, I know which bus to take to get to choice three).

I've stressed less since having all that info put together. Realistically my trip is short enough that something major would have to happen to make me abandon my first choice fully. We shall see!

A guy who I met last year training in Phuket visited Fighters Gym last month or so and he said it was great. He only did drop-ins tho, so can't say much about long-term.

If there's something in particular you'd like to know I can get in touch with him and ask him.

Hi
Thank you so much, there wasn't really anything in particular I wanted to know, just if the trainers were good and if it was worth the money, I'm thinking of doing there two week camp

I've heard of Fighters Gym but don't know anyone that had visited them in the past. I was interested in visiting BALI MMA months ago but I've decided to go back to Thailand again for x amount of reasons.... ALTHOUGH! Can't go wrong training/meeting Tiffany Van Soest, she's awesome! :)
