Training with Phuket Top Team MMA Training Camp thailand

I needa start this blogging again !

Man, i never thought i would be this busy EVER

If i had things my way i would be a lazy man….

But like they say ‘no rest for the wicked’

I am 27 i own Phuket Fight Store, Phuket Top Team, manage and run PTT… book fights etc. I have a wife and a 1 and a half year old baby. I have just had a new baby girl – 4 days old…. and im trying to stay sane !


But really i have no complaits – we have a great team of trainers, fighters and students… i have a great family and the gym is just going Up and Up as far as the standard of fighters and also the overall training and system in place.

I could really write a HUGE blog because its been a while, but i wont bore you guys. So ill blog brief and just keep blogging regularly !

The gym has recently been involved in “beef” with tiger (more so RAY)  now it seems that we opened a gym and they didnt like that… so the next gym to open (mike swick and roger huerta) have then come under attack.

Crazy given the ‘free world’ that thailand is supposed to be – epecially that its tourists/non thai people that are causing the issues

Mike Swicks article

Anyway im well bored of all that crap, lets live, grow and enjoy thailand hey!

We have been having a great time with Roger Huerta in the gym training and teaching students, Roger has been with us preparing for his fight with War Machine on November 26th In Texas

Also we have been lucky enough to have 3rd Degree Black Belt Silvio Braga (check out

This guy is honestly one of the best Jiu Jitsu guys i have seen roll, and a truly inspiring and amazing teacher… i guarantee ANYONE will agree after rolling and learning with him.

Tonight i was at the fights in Bangla we had 2 fights and 2 wins. Really good fights.

Daniel ketley (PTT team fighter) won his fight well via Technical Stoppage after dominating his opponent well.

Then our star and prodigy, the 19 yr old Dook (aka Wung Ng PTT – translated meaning Big Money) won are great fight via TKO referee stoppage from a cut via elbow. His opponent was highly regarded thai and Wung Ng proved far too good.

* i will put the videos up in the next blog *

We hope to send both Wung-Ng and Daniel off to Bangkok for fights in the near future.


Ok- please check back on the blog as i will keep it updated (i promise)

    Hey Boyd,

    Been following the development of PTT with interest since June, as I’m all booked to leave for Phuket. You guys seem to have a great camp.

    Its a shame the Tiger drama was getting out of hand. Piecing together the information from online forums, twitter and various blogs, it becomes apparent that Tiger is responding to business rivalry heavy handedly. Hopefully Tiger will realise this and allow everyone to move on.

    I’d just like to know how long will Professor Braga be staying for? I’ve called the gym several times and asked Jade about this question (she doesnt know) and unfortunately I haven’t had to chance to speak to you. Also, it seems my emails may have trouble getting through.

    I know it’s a busy period for you guys, but if you could drop me an email re bjj coach at , I’d really appreciate it.

    Hope everything stays strong for PTT
