Kaiyasit Chuwattana

8

I was so happy to finally see this online.  Kaiyasit is one of my favourite fighters, not just of the Chuwattana camp , in general, and few people I’ve met outside of Thailand know who he is.  Actually, I don’t know if I’ve met anyone outside of Thailand who does, but you should. He’s technical, fiercely intelligent and has held a number of belts.  I’m about five hours away from Chuwattana right now and I don’t have this kid’s number, but if I remember correctly, he’s been a WBC champion, Rajdamnern Stadium champion…..ah man, I wish I could do him justice here, but I can’t….he’s in his early thirties, fights consistently (meaning every month or so), has been fighting out of Chuwattana since he was a kid and of all the guys that have come and gone in that gym over the past year, I always watch this one – I just try to learn as much as I can.

I’ve seen his name listed as Kaiyasit, Kaiyasith, Gaiyasit and Gaiyasith…..he’s in red.

More about Laura

I’m a Canadian who decided to quit my job, sell most of what I own, pack a suitcase, and skip continents to pursue a martial art I’m not particularly efficient in. A minimalist. A modern nomad. A kid who just likes having a good time.

My attraction to muay thai is that it’s an art with no wasted motion. It has been the greatest vehicle for my continual education. It’s incredibly challenging to me – both the physical and the mental game. The latter probably more so than the former.

Currently I’m in Bangkok training muay thai fulltime. The plan is to be here for a few years, but realistically, I have no idea where this path is leading, or what the timeline is. I like change and pushing my comfort zone. A lot. Nevertheless, muay thai will be the constant among the variables.

Be prepared for updates, rambling, video content and anything I’ve learned that I think may of use to you.

This hasn’t been easy, but so far, its been a pretty sick ride.

  1. there are two chuwattana fighers in their 30s that fight consistently, meaning roughly every 4 – 6 weeks at raja. kaiyasit and ngaoprajan. ngaoprajan is the guy holding pads for me in the above pic. i’ve seen ngaoprajan win more often than lose and he usually wins by k.o. – with body shots more than anything. he can be interesting to watch.

  2. Nice to see some old-timers still at it. Nice fight, thanks Laura. Although, i have to admit, I was expecting to see Kaiyasit dominate the fight since the post was about him…

  3. Probably one of the best fights I’ve ever seen. So fucking beautiful they make it look like a true form of art. Its really ashame the smaller guys doesnt get any recognition.

    Anyway. I wrote this in the sit-O gym as well but maybe it fits better here?

    I’m gonna try out a new gym but I have really hard time deciding wich one! I’ve for a long time thought about trying out Chuwattana. However though I would like to know a bit more about the camp before I head over there to try it out.

    How is the location. Is it far away from downtown Bangkok? How is the situation for running? Do u have to run along the road next to all the cars or is it more “country like”?

    How is the trainers? Are they nice and humble?

    How is the mentality? Do they understand if u have some injury and can’t do everything (but almost) that everybody else does, as long as you still train really hard?

    Is it possibly to get sponsorship from them?

    Is there any cheap but still decent places to stay around there? How do the nakmuayz stay? No AC right?

    Do they have any good boxers (western) around 60 kg? (dont know pounds very well but thats perhaps around 130 p?)

    Do u have any recommendations of any gym that is pretty central?

    How is Somraks gym? Where is it at? Do they have a website?

    Doesn’t Chuwattana have any url? Been searching but cant find any…

    I would really appreciate if somebody took the time to help me out with this questions, and even more if I someone can answer as soon as possible cause
    I’m planning on trying out som gyms tomorrow!

  4. Just new to the site and slowly but surely making my way through the posts.

    A quality video and a quality fight. 2 master craftsmen who were evenly matched.

    Thanks for sourcing and for sharing Laura.
