Muay Thai

Have you been looking for a real old-school Muay Thai training experience, without going all the way to Thailand? For the first time in the United States you can finally have it! Don’t waste your time and money at buffet style MMA schools, we do one thing here, Muay Thai and we do it right. Do you want to train in Thailand? We will take you there with a professional guide/instructor for an experience you will never forget. Call or email us for details!

Are you bored and burned out sitting on the same gym machines day after day doing the same robotic exercises? Boredom is the number one cause of fitness drop outs. Why not work out with a purpose? Get fit fast and develop practical, real-world self-defense skills and confidence at the same time, (non-contact training is available for fitness only students). No two days of training are the same. Think about it, who cuts weight faster or more effectively than a boxer? If you are not sure what authentic Muay Thai is, or concerned your current instructor/gym might not be legit click on “Selecting a Camp” tab above for the right questions to ask.

The Mission

Our mandate is to remain one of the very, very few authentic full spectrum and uncompromising Muay Thai camps outside the Kingdom of Thailand. We bring you a unique, carefully tailored total immersion training environment with long established traditional Thai fighter training methods, while maintaining contemporary western safety and hygiene standards. We haven’t watered Muay Thai down or adjusted our methods for easy U.S. commercial consumption.

You’ll be trained just like a professional Thai fighter is in Thailand. We also provide full spectrum competitive fighter support for those that want to go all the way. If only fitness is your goal, that’s no problem, you choose to spar or compete in the ring, that is entirely up to you. All of our instructors have extensive first hand experience training and fighting in Thailand.

Walking into a Muay Thai camp for the first time can be intimidating, all of us have all been there. We encourage a positive, friendly training environment for total beginners or seasoned Nak Muay.  In short, we have brought Thailand directly to you here in the U.S. without the airfare, hotel expenses, language complications or distractions.

Whether your goal is effective non-contact training, fitness-weight loss, becoming an amateur or professional Muay Thai fighter, learning real world self-defense or combining Muay Thai with a ground fighting system for mixed martial arts competition, Channarong Muay Thai is the right place.

Our instructors will challenge you, but not push you beyond your limits…. and chances are you don’t know where your real limits are yet. The bottom line is real results, real confidence and real Muay Thai.

We do not employ mass commercial training classes, kids classes or an income inspired rank system incentive. Muay Thai in Thailand has no rank structure or “belts”. The only true measure of skill is, does the fighter win fights or not? Channarong Camp pro-fighters only compete professionally in Thailand, Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar (Burma).

*Note, we do not provide Muay Thai instructor or “Kru” certification. If you want training or certification to teach Muay Thai correctly, you need to put the work in and spend a considerable amount of time in Thailand learning the hard way, the right way. This would include stepping into the ring yourself. There are no short cuts here. You owe that to your future students, the integrity of the sport and the people of Thailand, whom Muay Thai belongs to.


No Mc Muay Thai, No Contracts, No Cancellation fees, No Registration fees, No “belt test” fees…. No Pressure!


It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat“.
