Hello All,

I was wondering if it is possible to attend the badahvista institute where Guro Salty studied krabi krabong and muay thai? Do they have a website? Instruction in english? Please include contact information for the place if possible.

Thanks!

woof Evan:

i may be wrong on this, but i thought i read/heard somewhere that the Buddhaiswan Institute closed down.

although that Institute was sponsored by the government and is the most well-known to farangs, there are other krabi krabong masters still teaching in Thailand if you search/ask around.

good luck in your search and training.

 OK. I've heard that the Buddhai Sawan school has closed its thonburi location (across the river from bangkok) but has actually reopened its original school in Ayudhaya (Ayutthaya...i forget how to spell it). Ayudhaya is about an hour north of bangkok. If you go there just ask for the Wat BuddhaiSawan (BuddhaiSawan Temple). This tidbit was given to me by the tourism board, which also has a phone number for the thai sports association if you need further details. I haven't been up to the temple so I really can't verify-but from the whispers I've heard they're still up and running.

 Alternatively, there are Krabi-Krabong classes every day at Lumpini park (in the center of the city). I'm not sure if there is a morning class, but i watched a late afternoon class (around 4-6pm in the NW corner of the park). The teacher was really nice and lessons are in thai. Also i once emailed Khru Villalobos who runs a school in Chiang Mai and he provided a contact number for KK training in Thailand.

 I trained for a little bit at the old location and although the instruction was in thai, the instructors were able to communicate their ideas quite well. The lessons were divided up into doing drills with different weapons and then learning the ceremonial dance for each weapon. good times.

Thank you for that info Porn Star Dog (That's because his last name is "JungwiwattanattaPORN" or "Jung" for short).

Ajarn Salty's life now requires his attention elsewhere.  We'll be glad for him and for ourselves when the wheel rolls around and he can join us once again.

I would recommend ajarn Pedro Villalobos in Chiang Mai.? ?www.ancientmuaythai.com

He teaches Muay Boran (old school) , regular competitive Muay Thai, and Krabbi Krabong (8th degree gold sash).

Chiang Mai is a much more pleasant city than Bangkok, especially for a long-term stay (you can renew your visa easily by taking a 5hr bus ride to the Myanmar border).?

sorry for the delay...
yes, i'm sort of local, i spent time growing up here and have been back now for a few months. the locals have a great attitude towards foreigners. i can't think of anything specifically to look out for.  as for immunizations, i really can't remember, i think i had one for encephalitus when i first moved here. TB is widespread, but things like malaria and dengue are pretty rare.
I'm not sure why KK is by invitation only. I haven't been to his school, I've only had a brief email correspondence with him. I'm hoping to get up to Ayutthaya soon to visit the Buddhaisawan school to get the low down on what's going on, but i'm not currently practicing KK. i have no disappointments about living here or any of the training i've had here.

Hey its Evan,

I am heading to Thailand on Oct. 22 and I will be training at Fairtex Pattaya. I realize that pattaya is kind of a seedy city but its by the beach so I thought it would be better than Bangkok. Hopefully I will find a KK school near there.
