Tomorrow will mark 1 week at my new gym in Chiang Mai, Por Silaphai Muay Thai. I have been pushed harder than I've been pushed in a very long time and Kru Sith really takes the "no run, no fight" mantra to heart. I don't think my shoes are going to last this trip hahaha. Just yesterday and today I clocked in around 35kms, those k's being put in before 2hour muay thai sessions, twice a day... Suffice it to say I am hurting and in my old age, recovery is slow hahaha. Have hit breaking point multiple times yet here we are, still pressing on. Hoping to fight at one of the local international stadiums in the next 2 weeks and there have even been hints of bigger things but for now taking it one step (read run) at a time..

Great gym to train at for any level.
Prasit and the other trainers at the gym are like a family and make Muay Thai training fun but push you hard. If your in Chiang Mai you have to check out the gym and meet the great people here. Whenever I am in Chiang Mai I won't train anywhere else apart from Por Silaphai.

Pretty good experience
I had learned Muay thai in Por Silaphai Gym for 2weeks. At the first day, it was pretty hard for me to practice it. However trainers adjusted the exercise intensity friendly. There are 5trainers including the superior trainer who was the Muay tai champion in Bangkok. Therefore they could correct my posture like the personal trainning. Anyway good time for a workout and chillout with the economical price.

trained there for 2 years. The best gym in gym for me.
#166 By: Rodolphe d [IP: 171.4.234.xxx]
Excellent experience !
Por Silaphai Gym is a really good gym, there is a fantastic atmosphere between all the students and all the teachers are professionnels and friendly! I really recommande this gym. I will come back.

Hands down the best adventure I've had
I've been traveling the world for 8 months now, and when people ask me what my favorite part is been, I tell them about living in a Muy Thai boxing camp for a week. The coaching was superb, and the mix of professionals and young Western amateurs made for great training. Be ready for a serious workout. That's the best shape I've been in for a while and I'm much more confident and left with new friends. Aside from boxing, eating, and sleeping, you'll be good tired and happy to just watch TV with the others or go for a daily massage. You won't regret it.
#168 By: KJBergemann [IP: 171.4.234.xxx]
A great muay thai experience
I trained at Por Silaphai for 3 weeks in June. The gym caters for all levels. Whether you are a beginner, an intermediate learner who wants to learn some new techniques or even a seasoned pro looking for some ring time, Kru Sith and the Por Silaphai team will sort you out. If you are looking to get in the ring, as I was, make sure your running shoes are in your bag from day 1, you are going to need them ;) and Chok Dee to you all...
#169 By: chris c [IP: 171.4.234.xxx]
great place To train
i did train for 1 month at por silaphai gym, they have nice and clean rooms, the camp is big and they have a hardworking, experienced and friendly team! i will do it again for sure!
#170 By: Lucile L [IP: 171.4.249.xxx]
I've trained in this gym for more than a year while I was still living in Chiang Mai. This is definitively the gym I would recommend to anyone going to Chiang Mai and looking for a muay thai gym with skilled and friendly teachers. The gym is also in a very convenient place. I really loved this gym and made some amazing friends.
#171 By: Brett I [IP: 171.4.249.xxx]
Muay Thai for all levels
Por Silaphai's gym has a great atmosphere and experienced trainers. They can help you out if you're a beginner just starting out or an experienced Thai boxer looking to fight and compete. They have close and convenient accommodation with stores and restaurants near.
#172 By: labello_12 [IP: 171.4.249.xxx]
Best friendly gym
There is no words to describe the experience i had in Chiang mai, the friends i made from around the globe and with these great trainers. Por Silaphai is not only a gym were you can learn and experience muay thai, but a home were family meets. I want to thank you for giving me your best during my stay.. Highly recommended if your into martial arts and visiting Chiang mai, prepare to sweat :) Kob khun krab

As the owner of a muay thai gym in Switzerland, I plan training camps in Thailand every year in July. Last year we were a small group of 5 who came to Por Silaphai. 1 guy had a couple of fights. This year we were 8 from my club but we brought fighting friends with us. 3 from France and 3 from the USA. Of the 14 of us, 11 had fights in Thaphae Stadium during our 3 week stay. Por Silaphai is a very high quality Gym. They have high level standards and push you more and more. You are so immersed in the family atmosphere that you progress without even thinking about it. Going hard comes naturally. Next July, even more folk are planning on coming.

I have visited two Muay Thai Gyms while backpacking through Thailand. Both gyms are adequate for all type of backpackers who want to experience Muay Thai.

Por Silaphai Gym, Chiang Mai (Thailand)

I have chosen to visit the Por Silaphai Gym to follow a Muay Thai Trainingscamp for a week. It has been an awesome experience to train at this Muay Thai Gym in Chiang Mai. The manager is a very kind man, with always a big smile on his face. I can say the same about the coaches. The gym recently has moved to a new location, nearby a 7-11 and places to get some foods and fruits. You will train in an open aired place, with a roof on the top, which I prefer over an air-conditioned room. They also offer accommodation nearby the gym and buffets.

At the Por Silaphai Gym they offer different Muay Thai classes. I have chosen to opt for training 2 times a day for a week long. The first training starts at 07.30 and ends at 09.30, the second training begins at 16.00 until 18.00. This means you will be training 4 hours a day, what will be a physical and mental challenge. I think I can say I am in a pretty good shape, however this week was still very hard on my body. You don’t have any time to recover. Therefore, getting some massages and good healthy food is a must.

The trainers at Silaphai Gym (Chaing Mai) put much effort in learning you the technique of Muay Thai Boxing. They are not easily satisfied, however it’s a great feeling when you finally have landed a high kick in the proper way. I can conclude from my training in this gym, that they not see you merely as someone who passes through, instead they want you to learn the skill of Thai Boxing.

Doing Muay Thai was a mental and physical challenge. Therefore I recommend everyone who likes sports to do it. However, it could also fit people that want to shed some excess fat! I did not have any experience in fighting sports, you don’t need it to enjoy Muay Thai. We had a diverse group of males and females, where some of them were experienced fighters, some intermediates and finally a few beginners like me. I thought it was a nice change during my travels, a great experience which has tought me something about one of the most popular sports in Thailand.

Amazing Muay Thai training for a week! Highly recommended!
#177 By: Ana Maria Butura [IP: 171.4.232.xxx]
The gym was very close to the centre so can easily be reached, it wasnt very packed and there were plenty of coaches to help all the people training. The coaches were so good, always pushing you to do your best and helping you improve.
I do wish they could change it up a little bit. Do different warm ups and cool downs as these are always the same and so gets boring.
#178 By: David Schmill [IP: 171.4.232.xxx]
The training groups were 90%of the time quite small which was nice and the trainers were really friendly. Accommodation was basic but good, clean and in to of a 7 eleven and next to a small food venue
#179 By: Tom Drahos [IP: 171.4.232.xxx]
Por Silaphaigym provided everything I could've wanted out of a Muay Thai training camp. The balance between conditioning, technique, drilling and sparring was pretty much perfect, and the trainers were absolutely amazing people, extremely knowledgeable on Muay Thai and very welcoming of foreign fighters to their gym. If you put the effort in, you feel like you're part of the family there. Accommodation was also good - basic, but comfortable. I will be back for sure. To Sit and Nok, and the rest of the Por Silaphaigym crew - thank you for a life changing experience.
#180 By: Gary Wade [IP: 171.4.232.xxx]
I had a great time and from the minute I got there I was looked after and made to feel welcomed, I was trained to the highest standard and have now took the training on full time in England I will be looking to stay again with por and he's team within the next couple of months , could not thank them enough for all there hard work and help.
#181 By: Maxime Branthome [IP: 171.4.232.xxx]
I would like to say thank you for this amazing week. Teachers and people who are training here are awesome! I would like to stay more time there but I couldn't, but for sure, if I could do it again, I will !!! :)
#182 By: Marcus [IP: 171.4.232.xxx]
Por Silaphaigym is a really good place for Muay Thai training. The location is about 15 minutes' drive from the old city. It's a really relaxed and peaceful place. Not much distraction that might bother the training, and on the other hand, not far from the city to have some fun. The accommodation is about 2 kilometers from the gym, run by a really nice and friendly family. The family gave us everything we need. I came here for 4 weeks of training. I was a newbie. The gym made me feel so comfortable. They put a lot attention on me and made me improve step by step quickly. Training is hard but only physically. We motivated each other and got through it. So I didn’t feel it was difficult to do it. We trained together, ate together, watched fights together and barbecued together like a big family. I had great fun and enjoyed the training pretty much. Will come back for more and for a fight.

Thai Boxing - For Beginners or Experienced
What a friendly and helpful Thai Boxing gym.
The boss and trainers are all experienced fighters and have a friendly & positive attitude.

You can chose to be part of group session or
have 1 to 1 teaching like I have.

If you're a beginner... you'll soon build up the basics after a few sessions... including how to defend yourself from kicks & punches.

Very enjoyable sessions and each trainer will go at the speed that's right for you.
You'll be pleased with how quick you progress.

I highly recommend this Thai Boxing / Boxing gym. Try it... you will love it.
Keeps you fit at the same time.

Have fun,
Cola

We had a 2 hour lesson for an eight years old boy. The teachers are very good. He had lessons at the professionals but also with a ten / eleven years old Thai boy. That was very good, because he had a lot of fun and it was balanced between learning and playing with children the same age.
#185 By: Valentin Taleb [IP: 171.4.249.xxx]
I spent 2 incredible months training in Silaphai Gym. I had a light background in Martial Arts but I had never trained Muay Thai.
The trainers are experienced, patient and really hearty. They take the time you need to master the different aspects of Muay Thai.

If you plan to stay for a long time, I recommend you to take a room in the lodges provided by the gym so you will be near the gym and you will have more possibilities to have fun with the trainers and the other students.
The food provided by the gym is tasty and healthy.

To sum up, it was a perfect experience for me !
#186 By: Glyn Evans [IP: 171.4.250.xxx]
I visited this fantastic gym looking for a gym for when i revisit Thailand this November. I was not let down , a fantastic traditional Muay Thai Boxing camp that caters for beginners to highly advanced and also people who want to try Muay Thai to seasoned fighters . What i loved about the place is the way they train everyone making sure everyone gets there mistakes corrected and coaches who want to get the best out of the students . I am a Boxing coach myself and so impressed with the set up that i am spending 7 days there to learn more . This is A really fantastic gym and worthy of 5 out 5 stars . Glyn UK
#187 By: Pete Scott [IP: 171.4.250.xxx]
Prasit and the guys at the gym are like a family and make the gym a great place to train at and be around. I miss training here with everyone and Por Silaphai is the only gym I will train at in Chiang Mai. Great training for beginners or advanced fighters to.
#188 By: mali kali [IP: 171.4.250.xxx]
Best gym of the city for me. Great atmosphere.

Opinión original
Made more than friends; it feels more like a family :)
It has been a wonderful, enjoyable and memorable past six days at Por Silaphai Gym, Chiang Mai, from 4-9 April 2016.

Although I have zero first hand muay thai experience and with only so-so fitness; the trainers were patient in their teachings and in explaining the techniques. There was no rush in conducting the sessions and they make it a point to ensure all the techniques are executed correctly.

The muay thai gym is located just 5 minutes from the old city. The surroundings are quiet and has a relaxed countryside feel. It has that traditional feel compared to those 'modern, air-conditioned' gyms.

It was an intense six days and I was pushed to the limit. Bruised shins, knees, thighs, aching body (at my age...37), but they would 'disappeared' during the training, as the mind would only be focused on the teachings and workouts. Large part of it was also due to the constant encouragement and pushing by the trainers.

Muay Thai boxers started training at the age of 6 or 7, till they are ready to enter the ring. 2 x two hours sessions for 6 days won't turn you into a competitive muay thai fighter. But just learning the basics, getting a different 'holiday' experience, making new friends with other trainees from other countries and listening to the trainers' stories, made it a fruitful week for me.

Strongly recommended for anyone, any level, who is interested in Muay Thai
#190 By: Alexey B [IP: 171.4.232.xxx]
Friendly gym and great experience
4 hours a day training - 2 in the morning and 2 in the afternoon, sweating like you’ve never sweat before, and discovering the art of Muay Thai is what Por Silaphai offers.

Training: Every session starts with stretching and ends with a cool down and in between you have running, pad work, weight training, sparring - which alternate from day to day. You will see people of all levels - from seasoned fighters to fit people going into Muay Thai for the first time to people that want to lose weight or become fit. Pad work is especially helpful as you change trainers each time, and each trainer has their own speciality - one focuses more on power, one on technique, one on combos. Sparring can be intense or soft depending on what level you are at. Every Saturday morning the gym takes the group somewhere else to train - it could be a run in the mountains, a lift to a park with weight equipment, or to the old city to run around. Aftwerards the team heads out all together to have breakfast.

Location: a bit off from the old city, but still reachable even by walk - a nice balance between off the touristy part of town, yet close enough if you want to head there. I found everything I needed within a 5 minute walk radius - groceries, restaurants, massage, laundry, cafe.

Facilities: The dorms provided by the gym are minimal, but at the same time have everything that I needed. There’s options for mixed dorms, private room, or private twin. I shared a twin room with my girlfriend and we found the room quite spacious and it had an AC and balcony.

Environment: Not to mention the people around would be a huge omission. The environment around the gym and the trainings really bonds people together and sharing this experience really creates friends. The owner, Sit, is very accommodating and very fun to train with.

This was a great experience for me, and I’m really happy that I spent my time at Pro Silaphai!

What a great place to train
I was here for 6 weeks training 6 days a week. The trainers are super friendly and make you feel part of the family. This is a great place to come and learn muay Thai from professional trainers in a relaxed atmosphere.
#192 By: Cherise [IP: 171.4.235.xxx]
I fell head over heels in love with Muay Thai in this outdoor gym. Coming from a background in self guided ultra running, rock climbing, surfing etc... I was excited to try something new and have professionals push my limits. And they did. The trainers I consider my family now, twice a day six days a week they would push me. I came in with a freshly fractured tailbone and recovering ankle tear from an ultra marathon, so I told the trainers about my limitations. They completely respected my limits and I was able to fully attend classes and even rehab injuries on the go. I loved it so much that I extended my month to 6 weeks (as long as visa extensions would allow) and I now plan on moving back to CM in April on a 1 year visa to continue training.
#193 By: Marcus M Mcrae [IP: 171.4.233.xxx]
Great training, really friendly staff. A must for anyone wanting to either develop their skills or looking for a first class introduction to mauy Thai.Thanks guys!!!
#194 By: Paul [IP: 104.237.91.xxx]
Amazing gym with super trainers. I was at Por Silaphai for 1 month with Kru Sith and the other trainers and really enjoyed the experience. Everyone is really friendly and helpful. I learned a lot of muay thai and worked out through the heat losing a few kgs during the trip. The gym accommodation is also excellent value and right next to the market, food stalls and convenience stores / mini supermarkets. It's also a short walk to the night bazaars, restaurants and night life. I couldn't have wished for a better experience. Already arranged to come back.
#195 By: Martina Pittl [IP: 171.4.248.xxx]
Amazin place with great people! I had a really great time at the gym - you learn there muay thai boxing but you also make friends there and the trainers also treat you like family! I had such amazing 2 weeks were I learned to go over my limits - it's an tough training but it definitely makes fun
#196 By: Martina [IP: 171.4.232.xxx]
"Do you understand Muay thai?" - your Kru asked and to be honest I didn't even understand the question. But at least these question is so important bc there is a big difference between learning muay thai and understanding muay thai.
My biggest problem was I always wanted to learn muay thai but I never tried to understand (or at least I thought I understand).
So if you really wanna learn muay thai then make clear that you also understand muay thai
#197 By: A TripAdvisor [IP: 171.4.249.xxx]
Traveling solo and coming from zero training background of any sport, the one month commitment to Muay Thai was a huge challenge. However, Por Silaphai Gym was the kind of gym where a month of training would leave you wanting for more. I initially came to train for a month but ended up staying for 2. This still wasn’t enough because every single training sessions left you with some areas to work on and the gym has grown to be my family.

The trainers are very observant, each of them would pick up on different aspects of Muay Thai (technical and mental) and help you work through them everyday. They stressed the mentality of a Muay Thai fighter, guard up, eyes open, move forward and to be FEARLESS. If you want a more in depth technical training, I highly recommend taking private lessons with a trainer of your choice.

A round of pad work during the group training with Khruu Sit will make you realize every move that you’ve been doing wrong. This is overwhelming at first but it is what makes this gym great, because Khruu Sit would not miss them. A simple twist, footwork or guard he focuses on makes all the difference to your Muay Thai. He would break down the techniques in detail and also explain why we need to move in a certain way. The reasons he gave us were logical, considering the opponents moves.
He focused on the importance of making planned, calculative attacks. These are all technical details that would save you and add more power to your Muay Thai. It was an honor to be learning from Khruu Sit and his team.

The trainers here makes everyone feel welcomed. The trainers here have strong family like bond and happily lets us be a part of them. Khruu Sit will remind us that we are a family even within during our group trainings, motivating us even more. What seemed to be the key to have a successful Muay Thai training here was to be open minded, the people who improved drastically were the ones that can respect the traditions of Muay Thai and the trainers and to realize it is completely different to boxing. Students must have the willingness to listen, observe and learn from the trainers who have had years of experience training and fighting in Thailand since they were young. Por Silaphai Gym wants us to “feel” and “understand” Muay Thai.

Considering the quality or the training, the experienced trainers, the atmosphere and the convenient location of the gym and accommodation, the training here was definitely worth it. And you sure will be well looked after as well! I learnt a lot about myself and was able to push myself to be better and stronger.

Thank you for teaching us the Art of Muay Thai and for all the wisdom that comes with the years of fighting experience. Will be back in 5 months!

A real Muay Thai Boxing Experience - Try it and feel it!
I trained 2 weeks in the por silaphai Gym and and during this time I also lived in their accomadation. The accomadation is 2 or 3 minutes from the Gym away - that is really great. It was the first time for me to try material art, i never tried before, so I was really nervos. Nevertheless the nervosität was as soon over as I arrived there because the trainer were so friendly and the also showed you everything step by step. The training is really intense and tough (just the first day when the show you everything is a little bit relaxed (;) but that's why you learn the most in a short time. What I really love at the Gym is that you come here and your not just a number who train here and bring money - you are a student who wants to learn about muay thai training and if you want you can always hang out with the trainers after the boxing. It feels there like home like family - in my opinion I don't think that there is a better place to experience muay thai boxing! The Gym is an outdoor Gym and the Trainers are really authentic and the not only want that you know how to box,, they also want that you understand muay thai boxing!
I also made there really good friends!
I really love this place and I just can recommend this place for everyone - it doesn't matter for how long.
If you are in Chiang mai this is the place to be!
#199 By: Austin, Texas [IP: 171.4.249.xxx]
The 3 weeks I trained here were amazing. The trainers treated me like family. They genuinely cared about my progress and helped me when I got hurt or got sore. They not only taught me about Muay Thai but they shared their culture with me, including their food, normal day to day practices and culture in Muay Thai as a sport. Amazing experience and I would recommend it to anyone. This is a great place for beginners and people who have trained before. The trainers teach each person as an individual and at that persons skill level. I loved my time here and would love to come back!
#200 By: wanderlust161 Perth, Australia [IP: 171.4.233.xxx]
Best Muay thai!
I did a week training, class was twice a day. The trainers were the best. I learnt a lot in the small time i was there. We trained hard but also had a lot of laughs and fun times. My best experience in Thailand! Nice opened air gym, prepare to sweat a lot! Will be back for sure! Miss you guys
#201 By: Pete Scott [IP: 171.4.234.xxx]
Best thing to do when it's a tropical rain storm... Try batter some pads at Por Silaphai Gym with Prasit Silaphai ☺️❤️ best place to train in Chiang Mai! Get down and check it out if you are in Chiang Mai
#202 By: Votes [IP: 171.4.232.xxx]
Of course you can do a one off session as a beginner or any level. We just do longer periods because we love the gym and the teachers are great
#203 By: Andy [IP: 171.4.249.xxx]
Excellent fun, really professional place
My son Olly and I took a 1.5 hour private lesson, which was really memorable. Olly is 15 and experienced at karate, I'm 60, and had a bit of regular boxing training about 20 years ago.

But none of this mattered in the slightest, as Muay Thai is very different to both disciplines. All you need to enjoy this is be reasonably fit.

We were both expertly bandaged, warmed up, and then taken through the moves.

Our trainer was skilful, highly attentive and very encouraging. His English was limited, but given that 'jab, cross, hook, uppercut, kick, knee and elbow' is all that's really required, it made the experience seem all the more authentic.

After we got some kind of grip on the basics we then got into the ring in turns. While our trainer worked one of us on the pads, the other was practising on the bag next to the ring. So we each ended up with three rounds of what felt like a real, up-close experience of this incredible martial art.

Gym was clean, kit was decent and transfers were quick and painless.

Cost was 900B each, which given the high level of personal attention was good value. Highly recommended.

We went a family of 5 a 3 children ages 12,10,5. We had a great time!
Real authentic experience.
My boys wanted to experience Thai boxing and we really did.
The crew was great, professional let us enjoy but still take it seriously .
All around it was great fun. Definitely recommend it

The trainers are very observant, each of them would pick up on different aspects of Muay Thai (technical and mental) and help you work through them everyday. They stressed the mentality of a Muay Thai fighter, guard up, eyes open, move forward and to be FEARLESS. If you want a more in depth technical training, I highly recommend taking private lessons with a trainer of your choice.

A round of pad work during the group training with Khruu Sit will make you realize every move that you’ve been doing wrong. This is overwhelming at first but it is what makes this gym great, because Khruu Sit would not miss them. A simple twist, footwork or guard he focuses on makes all the difference to your Muay Thai. He would break down the techniques in detail and also explain why we need to move in a certain way. The reasons he gave us were logical, considering the opponents moves.
He focused on the importance of making planned, calculative attacks. These are all technical details that would save you and add more power to your Muay Thai. It was an honor to be learning from Khruu Sit and his team.

The trainers here makes everyone feel welcomed. The trainers here have strong family like bond and happily lets us be a part of them. Khruu Sit will remind us that we are a family even within during our group trainings, motivating us even more. What seemed to be the key to have a successful Muay Thai training here was to be open minded, the people who improved drastically were the ones that can respect the traditions of Muay Thai and the trainers and to realize it is completely different to boxing. Students must have the willingness to listen, observe and learn from the trainers who have had years of experience training and fighting in Thailand since they were young. Por Silaphai Gym wants us to “feel” and “understand” Muay Thai.

Considering the quality or the training, the experienced trainers, the atmosphere and the convenient location of the gym and accommodation, the training here was definitely worth it. And you sure will be well looked after as well! I learnt a lot about myself and was able to push myself to be better and stronger.

Thank you for teaching us the Art of Muay Thai and for all the wisdom that comes with the years of fighting experience. Will be back in 5 months!

Sceptical me decided to try one session, then it was too much fun to quit so we did two more. Great trainers that push you while still being super nice and friendly. Afterwards you can stay for a beer or two. I'm coming back ☺

Made more than friends; it feels more like a family :)
It has been a wonderful, enjoyable and memorable past six days at Por Silaphai Gym, Chiang Mai, from 4-9 April 2016.

Although I have zero first hand muay thai experience and with only so-so fitness; the trainers were patient in their teachings and in explaining the techniques. There was no rush in conducting the sessions and they make it a point to ensure all the techniques are executed correctly.

The muay thai gym is located just 5 minutes from the old city. The surroundings are quiet and has a relaxed countryside feel. It has that traditional feel compared to those 'modern, air-conditioned' gyms.

It was an intense six days and I was pushed to the limit. Bruised shins, knees, thighs, aching body (at my age...37), but they would 'disappeared' during the training, as the mind would only be focused on the teachings and workouts. Large part of it was also due to the constant encouragement and pushing by the trainers.

Muay Thai boxers started training at the age of 6 or 7, till they are ready to enter the ring. 2 x two hours sessions for 6 days won't turn you into a competitive muay thai fighter. But just learning the basics, getting a different 'holiday' experience, making new friends with other trainees from other countries and listening to the trainers' stories, made it a fruitful week for me.

Strongly recommended for anyone, any level, who is interested in Muay Thai :)

Great place, great people!
Great Time we had there. Teachers are very skilled and can adapt with any level people. The atmosphere is relax but serious, and allow you to really improve, whatever your experience. I truly recommand that place for everyone who want to improve their Muay Thaï skills, or just want to discover this amazing sport surounded by a real and nice fight team.
