BCK Gym is located three kilometers from downtown Chachoengsao City in the Chachoengsao region.
Chachoengsao is a province of Thailand which is located in the east of the country. It is about 150 km from Bangkok. Its capital is the city of Chachoengsao.
One of the most famous camps in this region is the famous Por Pramuk Gym which is 25 km from the city of Chachoengsao. Por Pramuk Gym produced Thai icon Buakaw. The great ring star Namsaknoi also represented Por Pramuk Gym for a long time.

The BCK Gym camp was named before the Sor Jor Toy Petriew Gym, it is in the countryside in the district of Bang Phra. It is right next to the BCK company which belongs to the owner of BCK Gym, Mr. Krit Klaiklang.

The camp was redone in 2016, it has a brand new structure. Bungalows allow foreign fighters to sleep on the spot. Here they are really far from all the temptations of the tourist resorts of revelers. Only two English fighters trained at the BCK Gym.

The structure of the BCK Gym is in very good condition
