    also no mention of Scorpions ? home to Michael and Steven Wakeling - 2 of the best pros in this country and their dad Mark...a great coach

    plus Krishana, Elephant Gym, East London Muay Thai, Gymbox Team Tieu, Safari etc etc - to be fair there are a whole host of great teachers all over - could probably fill a page with the amount of clubs that are about...

    there are lots of good thai camps all over London..... and surrounding areas ... of course there is no 'best; camp as every instructor and their students will say the name of the gym they attend - its about getting the best out of the student


    bear in mind that there are a lot of good standup coaches who dont/can;t teach Muay Thai - the rules/scoring are different to that of K1 and Kickboxing - something which a lot of people dont understand - equally a great muay thai coach has to understand some basics of MMA to be able to cross teach striking for MMA...so really you need to work out what you want before picking a club...
    Wakelings are in Beckenham; which is Kent! Scorpions is a fantastic gym; just not in London

    KO has by far the highest number of active fighters (A, B & C class) and the longest pedigree by far. So in that respect KO are the 'best Muay Thai gym in London'. I doubt many people in the Muay Thai community would dispute that!

    This is not knocking the other gyms and fighters; just answering the OP question.

    keddles are in kent, minatours in hertfordshire - and depending on where you are in london some other london clubs are further away than those not in

    from an hours drive from central london Scorpions is just as close as Keddles really..s east london/kent all pretty much the same thing.... point being without knowing where in London the OP is dont exclude some of the best gyms in the country purely on the county name being Kent...


    im not getting involved in any sort of petty slanging match on the internet

    I will stand by my comments that there are many good gyms in London and surrounding aea - many with good fighters and coaches - being part of a gym that isnt a KO gym, I am of course going to dispute the 'KO is best' line lol -

    Not sure if Eltham Thai Warriors are still going, I remeber Mark Epstein trained there.

    Alan Keddles is probably number 1 in the area, great trainers and a top facility. 5 mins from me

    think Warriors now run from Kent - i.e further out.... as they put fighters out on Ringmasters last year so its running in some form - just dont think in Eltham

    fair enough; I'm not disputing the points you raised!

    Keddles and Scorpions are both very good gyms; who always turn our very well schooled fighters!

    as much as Id love peeps to come to Diesel - just to get people involved in the sport at another Muay Thai club is cool with me, and most of the gyms mentioned turn out decent , well schooled fighters - so being in London the OP is really spoilt for choice...

    They used to use the same club as Eltham ABA , the football club that owned the building went under hence Eltham ABA having to move homes.

    I also hear a rumour that Elite are also being moved from Eltham ?
