Master Toddy’s Muay Thai School has many distinctions which separates it from other fight camps in Bangkok, but it's most famous thanks to the legendary status of Grand Master Toddy himself (Thohsaphon Sitiwatjana), who has been labelled ‘The Father of Muay Thai’ in England, and also renowned with the MMA community in the US for training legends of the sport, including Randy Couture, Bob Sapp and Tito Ortiz. As proof of his stature in the sport, Grand Master Toddy is head of the MTIA (Muay Thai International Association).
Currently, there are 2 Muay Thai classes per day at Master Toddy’s Muay Thai School – a morning session from 07:30 to 09:30 and an afternoon session from 17:00 to 19:00 – but there are several other disciplines of fight sports soon to be introduced, including Muay Boran, Krabi Krabong, western boxing, women’s self-defence, and MMA.
Classes cost 500 baht to take part in a group session or 1000 baht for a private session, although packages are available by the week or month. The gym is outdoor but under cover, with a range of heavy bags, fitness equipment and a central ring for sparring. Master Toddy’s Muay Thai School in Bangkok trains all levels, from beginners looking to get a grounding in kickboxing, right up to professionals who want to work on their striking. For a more immersive experience, you can choose to stay at the camp – rooms are clean and simple, with air-con and TV as standard. Contact the camp directly for rates.
The fight camp is located in Bearing, at the end of the BTS Skytrain Sukhumvit Line, a few kilometres from the Skytrain station. You can get a motorbike to the camp for 20 baht or you can walk the roughly 15 minutes if you choose.
