    I live in Chiang Mai I practice Judo.

    Tiger Muay Thai for what I know is very busy with about 200 fighters all year around.

    Plenty chance to test your skills.

    Tiger is good but pricey as they are known all over the world. I'll try and get your some names, the best ones won't have websites. Bangkok is the best, but Phuket is a beautiful holiday destination. I've seen so many 'falangs' jogging on the roads with the others that look like they want to kill themselves. Ha ha, talk about minimal eating and over-exercising. If you are serious, you need to go from now until November before it gets really hot. Stay away from March to July when it hits mid 40s, it's too hot. I went for a bike ride when it was 37 degrees C and struggled. It's a different heat to the US/Europe.

    Thanks guys, yeah I have spent a fair bit of thailand and its the humidity that really gets to you. You end up sweating out so much fluid that you need to take salt tablets!

    I want to do a fair bit of weight work to maintain my strength, I notice a lot of the pure Muay Thai guys shed heaps of their body-weight (Muscle) and end up being skinny 'greyhound' fighters!

    I think that might be mainly due to diet/DNA/their preference for ultimate speed over anything else. Plus, the increased Brownie points for beating a stocky, white-guy is more than enough for an ego boost.

    I recommend Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu because they teach you a lot of grappling.

    Bas Rutten (Champion Fighter, Undefeated) as well as several other professional fighters and experts have said almost 90% of fights end up on the ground, so your best bet is grappling.

    Not to mention 90% of fights also last less than 1 minute, since most people have no endurance, so Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu will help you with all that.

    How do you suggest I make money in Thailand to stay there?
    Apart from my game I am tryng to get going BH is not working very well for me.

    I am really trearin gmyself apart stuck in England I really really hate the place after being in Thailand.

    There are some people training across from Soi Dianna hotel attaya I used to see them when I was jogging around the field opposite the hotel.
    I am not a kickboxer though.
