The Rachanon Gym first opened up in 2002 and only recently have they been welcoming to foreigners who wish to train there. There are approximately 30 boxers who train there under the guidance of 5 trainers. Among the trainers is an ex-fighter named Wanchai, who was a WMC champion.
There was a very good memory for me to train with this camp. They all are professional and real fighters. I got a lot of experience from training in here!
I was trained Muaythai at Rachanon camp, which was extremely excited for me. I heard so much about the owner of the camp. He used to won a bronze medal in the men's bantamweight. There were a lot of fighters which some of them still be the champion. When I first saw them, I felt like a small guy. However, the location of this gym is not in the city center and reach there a bit difficulty. You couldn't get there by public transportation, need to get a taxi. No entertainment at all, which I do not like.
It is a great gym! We stand in Rachanon about 3 weeks with our team (7 fighters and 2 coaches) preparing for IFMA Youth World Championship. Thai trainers are very good, they explain every detail and can listen to you and understand what you need and give it to you to become a better fighter. Also, there are a lot of thai fighters (from 40 kg to 75 kg), and they are actively fighting on stadiums like Rajadamnern, Lumpini, 7th Channel and others. Accomodation is also great, very close to the gym (500 metres). Clean rooms with A/C. By the way, you can book rooms and live right in the gym. Kitchen is also very “friendly” for europen people... and delicious. We have kids from 12 to 16 years, and they had no problem. The owner, is mr Vichai Rachanon, Atlanta amateur boxing bronze medalist, is a very big personality in Thailand, and he is a very, very nice Man. His daughter, Rawiwan is administrating the gym, and she do it very well. The gym Rachanon, is a big family, and you will feel here the true muaythai spirit.
