This document lists my personal reviews and information I have found regarding “Fighting” Gym’s in Bali.

bali mma

There are other “fighting” gyms in Bali, mainly small local gyms, however I have focused on the better known and equipped gyms.
I am very happy to say, that not only do we have many choices in Bali, we also have a lot of passionate people working in this industry, who offer great professional service and cater for all levels/abilities and ages.
For other opinions, reviews and information please check: Google or Trip Advisor.
If you would like me to review any other facilities, I am more than happy to do so. Please email me with your query. I plan to put together a more detailed review in the future.

Price
80 000-150 000 rupiah per class (There are different packages on their website.) In the gym, prices depends if you are tourist or expat/local.

Age
Adult.

Training on offer:
– Muay Thai: Change often. You will have a Traditional Muay Thai class by professional, expert fighter from Thailand (Tiger Muay Thai world class gym). Now in my opinion to be an excellent fighter is not necessarily to be an excellent teacher. The class is little bit similar to the “Dee muay Thai” gym.
-Boxing: When I was there it was Matt Sung Lee and it was a very good quality class, he left along time ago.
– Bjj: with Matt Sung Lee, so same, I need to try the class again.
-Wrestling: Don Carlo-Clauss, I tried one class, it was a good class. Interesting as it is not my main skills.
Don Carlo-Clauss, Anthony and Andrew Leone are the main trainers. They just opened, so I think it will take time for everything to run smoothly, you can feel that they are giving the best service and quality classes. So lets see what will happen.
