I have been visiting the KYN gym over the past ten years and each time my experience gets better and better.

It has a family feel to the place, everyone is included weather that's the training or just sitting around the bar area.

The location of the gym is stunning, you find yourself jut looking around at the beautiful views, and the sunsets each day.

The training can be as full on as you want it to be, you can do group session or private session.

The group session are in the morning and in the afternoon, you are warmed up, and coached about Muay Thai, no matter what level you are, you are looked after and helped at each stage of training.

It is amazing for fitness, or if you are looking to have a fight, it would be a perfect island to train on.

The head trainer P is a lovely man and looks after you like family

When you are not training, you have many people who work there who can give you ideas on what to do around the island, you can easily rent a bike within minute and be on your way.

Matt and Chewy run the bar and kitchen, they are both helpful relaxed and welcoming to all, and make it easy for you to order whatever you need.

The gym is owned by Harry and his daughter Lisa, Harry will pop by the bar from time to time, talk to him, he is a lovely man.

Lisa is an ex Mauy thai champion and just a lovely women, she knows alot about the island so annoy her by asking anything!

The island takes about 45 min to ride round and there are many bars and places to eat, the food everywhere is at a high standard.

If you go to Thailand you wont be disappointed going to KYN, everyone who goes for 1 day, stays a week, anyone how books a week stays for 2!

KYN Muay Thai Gym
Definitely my favourite gym, due people, location, training and food. The staff is supportive, in any way you need support. Trainings are tuff, but always to make you better and you are always watched after by the trainers. I haven’t found a gym where there is that much of sparring, and that’s where I believe comes the real growth. During the trainings there is more than enough time to improve your technics too. The intensity of the daily trainings will strength your condition and muscles, but, unless you ask for it, all the time the trainers spend it on your fighting skills. If you wish you can go running yourself at this beautiful island or make use of the fitness equipment in the gym. Many beautiful beaches, amazing restaurants and about two bars is what the island can give to you. And don’t forget the local people, no need to lock your door, this community is built on love, trust and 100% inclusivity. Those two bars are enough for some joy and entertainment and also to keep the island a peaceful place to be. The meals served at the gym are tasteful and made with love, perfect to feed you. After trying quiet some places I wouldn’t not only say that this is my favourite place to train Muay Thai, it is also my favourite place to train for life.

I spent a week at KYN and loved every minute spent here. The training is intense and thorough with a strong focus on technique. If you are familiar with muy thai or other combat training then i would not hesitate to recommend an extended stay of a week or more.

For the unitiated i suggest you train a bit before you come to be able to make the most of the twice daily sessions avaliable at KYN. Otherwise you can also just have a private session during your stay at koh yao noi.

The food provided is great and so is the accomodation. Scooter hire is avaliable onsite. Koh Yao Noi has a 7-11 pharmacy and plenty of spots to eat and drink.

This place is incredible. Turned up with absolutely no fight experience what so ever. Was welcomed with open arms by everyone. They have a real passion for what they do and I learnt so much in my short stay. Only regret is that I didn’t stay longer. Already planning my return. Thanks guys and see y’all soon :)

I booked a private one hour lesson through my hotel. I was looking to keep active on my holiday but had never done Muay Thai before so wasn’t sure what to expect. But I had such a good time I went back for another session. I had a different trainer for each session and I thought both were excellent. So much fun and such a great workout - probably the highlight of my stay at Koh Yao Noi.
Thanks team - you were awesome.

I really liked my staying at KYN Muay thay gym.
Lisa, on of the owners is a great person, She was the one I met when I arrived and I got the welcoming feeling immediately.
Hlukhin, the head trainer, also a person with great personality. He and the other trainers, Bou, Ho and Nok will teach you the style of Muay Thai down to the smallest details.

I got the feeling that they are more into the technique. First we was sparring only with kicks, after that it was full muay thai and after that only punches. We did the pad work out at the of every session.

Over all, this was one of the best gym I was wisitng on my travelling and 1 week of staying was to short, feelt more like 3 days or something. I really family atmosphere, when it's not training time you can talk with the trainers and all of them are really nice people.
Every saturday they go to one of the restaurangs on the Island for a buffe night with a scene were any one who wants can sing.

You are thinking of training Muay Thai in Thailand? This is the place you should go!

I've been training on Koh Yao Noi with Muay Thai legend Hlukhin Wassantasit and his amazing team already 3 years (2 weeks each) in a row and I can't wait for next time.

No matter if you are a beginner or pro, everyone will get the most out of every single training. You just have to be willing to sweat. But you wanted to learn Muay Thai...? Go and love every single drop leaving your body ;)

The whole KYN team is incredibly talented, professional and absolutely dedicated. You will be able to learn the most according to your level. The training is intense, the classes small (private lesseons also possible) and therefore you will get a lot of individual attention. You become a part of the family and you will feel the passion and love of every trainer. Training is damn exhausting (if you put in the work) but it's also a lot of fun. You will grow technically as well as mentally. Try to soak in every single word head coach Hlukhin tells you during the sessions. This will help you in- and outside the ring!

There's also the chance the to compete in a real Muay Thai fight if you are ready for it. The Gym holds monthly fight nights in his own KYN Muay Thai stadium. Are you willing to train like a real fighter and face the challenge? This your chance! I've seen parts of the training as well as the fight three times already and I'm impressed!

And if high class training is not enough go to KYN the location will do the rest. You live and train right at the water, surrounded by a nice garden and right next to the swimming pool. And last but not least next to the great in-house restaurant. Breakfast and dinner is included and every meal is delicious and healthy. The kitchen ladies are more than just in charge of the food, there are the best help if you need anything like scooters, help with you laundry or with the organisation of a trip. They are amazing! Just like Lisa (Hlukhin's wife). She will help you with every question and every problem. No matter what. But she is not only the perfect organiser and good soul of the gym, Lisa was also a Muay Thai fighter. This tough woman nows what training and fighting is all about.

The island itself is one of the most beautiful and least touristic place I've ever visited in Thailand. The best thing is to rent a scooter and just discover every inch of Koh Yao Noi. It's stunning. But not the party place, just to let you know. Beautiful landscape, delicious food and friendly people. A paradise!

A big big thank you to Hlukhin and Lisa for creating this wonderful gym and atmosphere, allowing every visitor to have an incredible time. See you next time!
