A Nak Muay Nation training camp is different than a typical camp because we take tremendous pride in creating a progressive, specific training regimen to guarantee you come away from the camp with crisp striking technique, fight-ready conditioning and a dramatically improved fight IQ… basically you’ll come out a transformed nak muay.  

On top of the daily two-a-day training regimens, you’ll also be a part of an intimate group of other passionate, motivated practitioners who are all at the camp for the same reason as you - to take your Muay Thai to the next level and have an experience of a lifetime in Thailand. 

Our aim is to have you come out of this camp a transformed fighter and feel more motivated than ever.

"The Nak Muay Nation at Khongsitta Gym in Thailand exceeded all my expectations and everyone treated me like family."


"The entire experience was great and I learned a lot! I got to meet legends like Buakaw, Saenchai, Petchboonchu, Kaew Fairtex, and watch fights at the prestigious Lumpinee and Rajadamnern stadium!”

Thank you to Sean Fagan, Matthew Deane Chanthavanij, Dunk Visutthithada, all the great trainers at Khongsittha, and of course the great friends that I've met here. If you come to Thailand, you HAVE to check out Khongsittha!"

- Jeff Chan, Canada, Nak Muay Nation Camper


"I can say that this camp certainly was by far one of the BEST I've ever been. "

"This was my fourth trip to Thailand and having already trained in more than 10 camps, I can say that this certainly was by far one of the BEST I've ever been. 

I always come by my own but this time I decided to join a group and it could not have been better... 20 people passionate about Muay Thai! Khongsittha Gym has a great and clean facility and the fact that we were a group made everyone at the gym focused and motivated on improving, and the trainers always respected our individuality. At the Nak Muay Nation Training Camps you’ll be learning new muay thai skills and improving the skills you already have. You’ll also meet new people, have fun and create great memories. Thank you to Sean Fagan, Khongsittha Muay thai and all the friends that I have met here.”
