No.1 Muay Thai camp in Klang

Sitkrumat Muay Thai Boxing Camp was established on 1st January 2009, in Selangor, Malaysia by Kru Raja Ahmad Talmizi, a school teacher from Kelantan. Kelantan incidentally, is a state located on the Thai-Malaysian border.

Kru Raja Ahmad, ingeniuously picked a recreational park to serve as the camp’s training centre. As Kru Raja Ahmad is also a high school teacher, most of the camp’s pioneering trainees, consisted of his own students at school.

The syllabus taught at Sitkrumat is complete and exhilarating as it encompasses Muay Thai teaching and education for pre-school. Kru Raja Ahmad has studied the training systems of the Muay Thai camps and gyms in Thailand; and subsequently adapted it to attract everyone in the local community.

Despite not having permanent gym premises like the other Muay Thai gyms in Malaysia; Sitkrumat has drawn and received remarkable public attention and support. The camp’s location at the centre a recreational park, clearly proves to be an advantage as it enables any member of the public to literally walk in and join the training. This gives the camp an edge over other camps, in terms of public accessibility. To date, Sitkrumat has trained almost 200 high school students and adults.

Sitkrumat is also responsible for introducing a Muay Thai awareness programme known as the 1Malaysia Authentic Thai Kickboxing Workshop. For merely RM100 (USD30), Muay Thai enthusiasts will be able to learn Muay Thai from local champions and also trainers from the best clubs in Malaysia. Sitkrumat is also instrumental in spreading Muay Thai in Sabah, with the recent success of the 1Malaysia Authentic Thai Kickboxing Workshop in Kota Kinabalu. 50 Nak Muay were literally produced, via the said workshop.

Mohamed Nazim Maduarin is a Muay Thai trainer in Furious Style Muay Thai Club, Kota Kinabalu.
