The past few decades, boxing has gotten competition from a new brand of combat sport called mixed martial arts, or MMA, for short. Mixed-style contests have been around since the early 1900s, popular in Europe, Asia and the Pacific Rim.

 

MMA reached the United States in 1993 with the founding of Ultimate Fighting Championship, adapted from the Brazilian sport of vale tudo. Today MMA has grown into a million-dollar industry with leagues and gyms around the world.

 

For many fans watching the latest UFC bout, there is a longing to actually enter the octagon themselves. One gym that provides training in mixed martial arts is Tiger Muay Thai, a world-famous gym in Phuket, Thailand. TMT has trained everyone from beginners looking to lose weight to professional UFC fighters learning new styles of combat. Since the gym’s inception, it has attracted fighters from around the world who want to train in TMT’s extensive facilities that include six rings, an MMA cage, 36 workout rooms and nearly 30 trainers.

 

Participants have the option of choosing group or private sessions in a variety of styles, ranging from Muay Thai to western boxing to stick fighting, in addition to cross fit and exercise sessions to help you get in shape. TMT is a big name gym with a strong sense of camaraderie. Students are encouraged to hang out and explore Phuket together, and there is a social life that isn’t seen in most other gyms.
