    Hi Guys,
    Im going to be living in Luang Prabang for two months and I was really hoping to begin training muay thai/laos during my stay. Do any of you know of any muay thai/laos gyms in the area? Ive looked a lot online but have yet to find any.
    Thanks so much,
    Elias

    perhaps try asking the locals in Luang Prabang, & maybe around the local stadium/sports grounds. in Thailand people like policemen, songthaew drivers & whoever else fits the profile of the main audience (bettors) tend to be the ones who know about the local sanaam muay & khaai muay. a clue - based on the (very scant) profiles of the nak muay at the national level competition in Vientiane, seems like quite a few of them come from the military.

    if you really think these things are online on the www-you have no idea at all how Laos works. I highly doubt if there are in fact ''formal'' offerings-it is a matter of asking around and making a deal with a local. Start in your guesthse.
