At Tiger, people train with other people of a similar experience/skill level. Beginners train with beginners, pro fighters train with pro fighters. Tiger has a group of foreign fighters who are far from mediocre; Don Madge (ranked 2nd in the world by WPMF at 154lbs), Claire Haigh (2 x world champion), Muhsin Corbbrey etc. I also like to think I'm a bit better than mediocre haha
But yeah, I can understand that some people don't like training at a gym as big as Tiger. And if you're not an experienced fighter you probably won't get to train directly with the young Thai fighters.
Lots of gyms to train in Thailand and different ones suit different people, so best to do some
good research before booking a camp.[/qu
good info mate-thanks for that.i too thought tiger sounded a bit mainstream and sort of sell out i guess as it got too well known.good to know that they have some real fighters train there.
quick question-for the bigger guys,say over 100kg is it practical to train muay thai over in thailand?i mean are there bigger guys to spar with etc .i have researched a bit and they all seem extremely lean and the technique level is high but they seem small.maybe 75kg tops.
thanks for any advice.
