"Having trained at Emerald for a few weeks now, I would fully recommend anyone who is thinking of training to give this place a try. The trainers are incredible, most if not all are active fighters who will teach you the techniques and make sure to explain everything step by step and the location is away from the busy main road of Ao Nang, surrounded by nature."


"I stayed 3 weeks with them and it was awesome. Master and teachers are great and skilled, even if you don't know how to box they take time to get you in good circumstances to have fun and improve yourself (easy communication). Lot of smile and laugh will be there for sure. Straight bottom of the mountain, Emerald gym is located far from the pollution and close to the nature, beaches and islands (Hong, PhiPhi)."


"Big space, two rings, living rooms, perfect view, good technique, pro trainers, super atmosphere. Best place for both novice and professional boxers."
