Where are we located?
Phetchabun is located 290 kilometres north of Bangkok. Few tourists make it here, meaning this is an off the beaten track destination and an opportunity to experience the real Thailand! Our camp and the on-site accommodation is very close to shops, local Thai restaurants and coffee shops in a very authentic area of Thailand.
More about the family
The Keawma family (who run the retreat centre) have been involved in Muay Thai training and fighting for hundreds of years. The name of the gym itself comes from the Thai saying Phichit Suk (ส.พิชิตศึก) which translates as ‘Battle Conquer’ – this is a phrase said to fighters for good luck before a flight!

People gravitate to his calm and friendly demeanor.
BEE: Bee is one of our home grown fighters, and has been training at Battle Conquer Gym since the age of 9. While his fighter name is Pet Tai, referees tend to refer to him as Hitman. They are not fooled by his sweet face as they know him to be a killer in the ring, particularly skilled in elbow technique. He has had 58 fights (winning 34 times), and is somewhat famous at the Nakhon Sawan Stadium, one of the biggest venues in the area. He can be bashful, but is very playful and a delight to be around.
BEY: Bey is one of our masters, with 128 fights under his belt (75 wins), and all at the tender age of 22. He has multiple championships in Bangkok, at both the Lumpini and Rajadamnern stadiums, and was once light weight champion in Chiang Mai. He is known for being quick in the ring, and will coach you to be the same as he gets you powered up and fight ready. Trying to punch Bey will be one of the hardest challenges you face!
GAME: With 200 fights under his belt, and 145 wins, Game is a highly expert coach. In fact, he has himself trained two fighters through to championship wins. After he was named Champion of North Thailand, he traveled to China where he taught Muay Thai for a year. While he has the skills of an expert champion, his gift is always making people feel good about their workouts, even beginners.
JACKS: Training since the age of 12, Jacks has fought in Bangkok in both the Lumpini and Rajadamnern stadiums, once winning the championship at the latter. All told he has been in 300 fights.

To expand his skills further Jad traveled to Myanmar where he fought and won in Muay Kaad Chuek, a bare knuckles form of boxing native to that country. Before coming to Battle Conquer Gym Jad opened a gym in his home town where he taught young kids to fight. Jad is tireless, and while he will push you to your limits, he is known around here for how encouraging he is.

PEPO: Pepo is our youngest trainer, but don’t let that fool you. At 17 he has already been fighting for 10 years, and has fought in 30 matches. He started his training in Pattaya and won a belt in Sattahip. His kicks in particular are acrobatic, and it is fun to watch him as he flies through the air. Let him teach you how to do the same. Pepo is quiet and gentle and a particularly good trainer for beginners.
