Tyron Woodley – Former UFC Welterweight Champion

“The gym looks amazing! Mike Swick is a good team mate and coach and has been successful at every level. I can’t wait to visit.”

Daniel Cormier – Former UFC Light-Heavyweight Champion

“This is one of the most amazing gyms I’ve ever seen, the most amazing gym. AKA Thailand is a destination for anybody of any level of fitness or for whatever you’re looking for, this gym covers everything. There’s so many levels of fitness here. They have the Muay Thai area, the MMA area, the fitness area which is a whole other level. This has surpassed my expectation by far, I had no idea it was going to be like this, I’m literally in ahhh. AKA Thailand was one of the best experiences of my life. It was a beautiful place and the best gym I’ve ever seen.”

Luke Rockhold – Former UFC Middleweight Champion

“It’s one of the most beautiful gyms in the world. They’re on the way to building a bigger better AKA then I have here in San Jose, California. AKA Thailand has everything AKA HQ has. They have great wrestling, great Jiu Jitsu and better Thai boxing.”

Javier Mendez – AKA Founder

“I’ve been watching the build of AKA Thailand from day one, It looks great.”

Cain Velasquez – Former UFC Heavyweight Champion

“AKA Thailand has been amazing, like I said, I’ve been looked after really well. I’m in the best physical shape for this fight, i’m looking forward to fighting. I don’t think I could be prepared any better.”

“I’m looking forward to another fight camp at AKA Thailand.”

Mark Hunt – #7 Ranked UFC Heavyweight Contender

“AKA Thailand is one of the best training facilities that I’ve been too. Not just in Thailand but anywhere. Great instructors, clean facilities and bathrooms and it’s set in a jungle environment.”

Jon Fitch – MMA World Champion, BJJ Black Belt, AKA Team Captain

“I had the privilege of training at AKA Thailand with my entire family and it was such an amazing experience. They have everything a professional athlete would need to run their entire camp from one location. The food is clean and healthy, they have a separate indoor workout area, huge space for training both inside and outdoors with the elements. There’s just something about being with nature that sparks creativity within an athlete and the views are absolutely breathtaking. Mike Swick and his staff were all very helpful during our stay and made me feel right at home. Every coach that I worked with was very knowledgeable and fun to work with. I’m planning on making another trip out there very soon. I can’t wait to see everybody!”

Michelle Waterson – UFC Fighter

“Quite simply impressive! MMA fans keep a close eye on AKA Thailand.”

Victor Cui – ONE Championship CEO International

“AKA has a massive reputation in the MMA world and with an upcoming fight here in Thailand, I was looking for a place to come and finish the final days of my preparation.” I thought it would be a good idea to not only train at a gym with such a high reputation but to check out the brand new facilities. The facilities are second to none. I’ve trained at other MMA based camps (in Phuket) and I haven’t seen anything like this.”

Paul Daley – World Renowned MMA & Muay Thai Fighter

“It’s paradise here. I’m definitely getting the best training and the duo; I wanted to come out here and still have a vacation because it’s my hiatus from the show but I also wanted to train and transform and these guys (Muay Thai trainers) have definitely helped me transform…”

“It’s my new home (AKA Thailand), I don’t think there’s going to be a year that goes by that I don’t come back out here.”

Gina Rodriguez – Actress Star of “Jane The Virgin” & “Deepwater Horizon”

“This is the best gym in Thailand!”

Dan Bilzerian – “King Of Instagram”

“I came to visit AKA Thailand with my family. We all loved it. The open air gym outside is impressive. All the coaches and people we met were beyond accommodating and welcoming. The kitchen made fantastic food. I could have definitely spent more time here. AKA Thailand is bad ass! Thank you for hosting us!”

Chuck Liddell – UFC Hall Of Famer

“AKA Thailand is a one-stop-shop. You come at your own speed and pace, and I think that is what sets it for every person. It’s personalized for you. If you’re here to get in shape, if you’re here to be the number one champion, it gives you all the opportunity to be the best.”

Ricco Rodriguez – Former UFC Heavyweight World Champion
