    Where in Bangkok can I do boxing?

    My stress levels have been going through the roof lately, never really felt like this before, some mornigns I wake up with a really tight chest. At Ram I am surrounded by really rude ignorant students, the Chinese are the worst, then the Thais. Anyway i have 2 months left and I am thinking a good way to handle stress would be to take up some kind of boxing. I am not interested in the Thai style, I don't want to look like a tosser, i would like to do normal boxing.

    Anyone know if there is a gym in Bangkok where i can do this, i can't think of better stress relief than punching someone in the face and not get shot or stabbed afterwards.

    Plenty of Thai boxing places everywhere of course. Would that do?

    My mate goes to Ram and he boxes here somewhere as well, though he lives in Pinklao. I'll ask him later.

    That's a Thai boxing camp. I know a guy who trained and fought out of there.

    My mate does straight-up Queensbury pugilism out of there. Has the odd organised bout as well.

    Fair enough. Anyway, I'm sure almost any Thai boxing camp that you'd ask would let you use the bags and provide someone to hold pads in any style you wanted to learn, if you asked and agreed on a price.

    I prefer buying pig carcasses from the market, hanging them in my kitchen and going at them hell for leather with pieces of broken glass sprinkled on my bare fists.

    Not being silly davey, (honest!) but maybe you should see a doctor before a pugilist.

    All a doc is going to do is give me valium or antibiotics, i'm thinking some sort of exercise would be better. I would like to find a gym near ratchada, i hate Ramkhanghaeng, don't want to spend any time at that dump if i don't have to. lol
