A group of us went to watch the fight night just before Christmas. Was a bit skeptical at the 500 baht entry price but what a night! The whole group loved it! We arrived 45 minutes early to get good seats. If you're on Koh Tao during a fight night, don't miss out!

We only had one free day but wanted to have a go training in the sports home country. We already had experience in UK, we were welcomed to join the class with smiles. The heat made it interesting, flash pads and lots of stretching. All good fun followed by a fight show in the same night.

Last saturday morning (13-08-2016), I joined a Muay Thai kickboxing class at Island Muay Thai Koh Tao. It was a great experience. After an extensive warming up I got to practice with an experienced trainer, like a personal training session. Even though there were more participants, we all got one training partner which makes the class very personalized and intense.... More

The place has a real nice atmosphere, the trainers are super friendly and taught me all the basics as I was a complete beginner, with my boyfriend they helped him improve his technique and pushed his fitness. The accommodation at the gym was the... More

Had a great time at IMT. Friendly environment catering to all skill levels. Trainers were fun but experienced and keen to see the students improve. 10-15 minutes of skipping followed by 5-6 rounds of pad work with technique advice. 400 baht for 2 training sessions in 1 day is good value. Went to the air conditioned gym 500 metres further... More
