…is crossed by the street “Soi Ta-Iad”, the sports street of Phuket. Nearly every building spoils with food you won’t find anywhere else in Europe. Massage salons, small restaurants, numerous overnight accommodations, scooter rental, several beautiful beaches in 30min distance and the whole day colorful hustle and bustle. All this for small money.
At the western end you will find the “Tiger Muay Thai” training camp. Belongs to a Russian millionaire. Whoever trains in “Tiger Muay Thai” is respected. It is a quiet secret club.
People of all shapes and colors, all ages and from all over the world meet here.
You train at 07:00 in the morning with a former Thai boxing champion for the equivalent of 16 Euro per hour in private lessons. After showering, treat yourself to the tastiest breakfast or lunch of my life in “Tony’s Restaurant”, fly with your scooter to “Yanui Beach”, enjoy coconut and fish. Flies back to yoga, circuit training or Brazilian Jiu Jitsu training.
You can be “Forever Young” in this street forever, understand epigenetics, practice molecular medicine without reading a single book. You just do it.
Maybe you are looking for something new in your life. The Thaiboxing beginner training in a group is cheerful, funny and hard. The Thai trainers will make you laugh. In between. If you still have some air left.
Fear and worries are completely foreign to this place. For me it is the most beautiful place in the world.
