    I'm looking to travel to Thailand to attend a boxing camp and train in Muay Thai.

    I'm a 29y/o female with some experience in martial arts, Muay Thai included, but in this context, I would call myself a beginner. I'm not looking to be a professional, or even fight necessarily, but I'd like the experience of rigorous training for a few weeks or possibly months, depending on how things go.

    I'm looking for a school that is reasonably priced and relatively authentic, whatever that means. That is open to beginngers/foreigners, but is not solely for that purpose. That trains actual Thai boxers, that is maybe off the beaten path a little, and that has some members that speak english, because unfortunately I don't have a second language, other than my poor Spanish.

    In my research I have come across Lanna Boxing Camp, or “Kiat Busaba”, in Thailand’s northern capital city of Chiang Mai. I was wondering if anyone had any experience/info on this or any other boxing school? Any help would be appreciated!

    Thanks.

    Hey little sister, there is a gym in Ubon Ratchathani that is training a handful of foreigners AND Thais (together). It is deep in Isaan, and not on a tourist track. I've been to some of their fights - they can fight. It's a very tough sport, but you are obviously aware of this. If you are interested, I will see if I can get you more details. Not a lot of women in the sport though (but there are some). To get a fight you'll probably have to actually fight in Bangkok.

    There is Horizon on Ko Pha Ngan: http://www.horizonmuaythai.com/ It's quite out of the way and I'd imagine most of the students are foreigners, but could be worth a look.

    There is also a muay thai gym walking distance from Khao San Road -- it definitely trains both Thais and foreigners. No website that I know of, but anyone on KSR will be able to point you in the right direction. There is a story about it here: http://www.khaosanroad.com/nicole/nicolepage.htm

    Cheers
