I can’t say enough good things about this place. I showed up to Charn Chai weighing 300 lbs and unsure if it was going to be a good place for me. It has been amazing! I dropped over 80 lbs, gained flexibility, and left feeling like the people from the gym are my family. The trainers truly care about your progress. They will help you achieve your goals from professionals fighting in Bangkok stadiums to 43 year old 300 lb beginners. There are students of all experience levels to learn from that will help you out. Everyone is there to get better and willing to help. If you are looking to fight, improve your fitness, or just have a blast learning Muay Thai, I wholeheartedly recommend this gym. Jump into the sessions, have fun, and watch the noticeable progress you make in a short time.

I arrived at Charn Chai as an absolute beginner, zero experience in any martial art, not particularly athletic and very anxious as to how well I will be able to keep up.The trainers could not have been more accommodating. The classes are a large mix of both absolute beginners and people that fight on TV, but you never feel intimidated everyone is so friendly. The trainers just want to help you get better and will push you as hard as you want to be pushed, whether you want to train to fight or just want to train for fitness.I started my month anxious as to how it would go, and I finished my month wanting to stay for another. Highly highly recommend this camp to any person beginner or otherwise. Couldn't be a more friendly place to train and the trainers are the best!Thanks Charn Chai! I will be back!

Charn Chai is a magical place that I have continuously come back to over the past 8 years. It is my family in Thailand, and a place I truly feel alive, feel loved, and laugh while getting an intense workout and training in. I did not come from a martial arts or combat sport background, and have really embraced the sport and learnings (both physical and mental). The trainers are INCREDIBLE - they support you in your development and growth, provide a lot of attention and care, and are playful at the same time.Mr. Bee with his GM, Steven, have built a world class training camp in the beautiful mountain setting of Pai. Its a once in a lifetime experience.

Best gym in Thailand, all the trainers are so friendly and the whole gym is like one big family. It’s very nice to see all levels frombeginner to high level professionals. I spent a total of 8 months here and wish I could have stayed longer! They have semi regular BBQ’s on saturday nights too. I had a total of 4 fights here including my first fight. All the coaches couldn't have been more supportive!



Pai is a small town 140km north of Chiang Mai and very easy to reach thanks to the minivan services running every hour from Chiang Mai bus station and Pai airport operating flights to and from Chiang Mai (25 minute trip). The town is situated in a valley surrounded by mountains, jungle and rice paddies and is unlike anywhere else in Thailand. There is a friendly, laid back vibe in town and everyone feels welcome!
