    I am currently living and training MMA in China. I will be wrapping up my job in China in June and looking to travel South East Asia (Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos) for 3 or 4 months before returning to the States. Looking to continue training and learn some cool sh** along the way. Thailand should be easy enough to find places to train, but haven't seen or heard of much in Vietnam, Cambodia, or Laos. Anyone ever train or know anyone that has trained in SEA? Any suggestions would be sweet! MMA/BJJ/Boxing/Muay Thai/cool sh** I don't even know about.... In Vietnam this place has been suggested http://www.k1-factory.com/ Thanks ya'll

    There is a Muay Thai gym in Ubon Ratchathani that trains both Thai and Farang fighters. They travel all over and fight - and get paid. Some Mauy thai techniques, particularly with the elbows and knees, but have some utility in MMA, so some fighting experience in this art might carry over for you.
