(Thanks to Frederic JEAN)
The NONG KHAI MUAY THAI GYM is located in the city of Nong Khai in the province of Nong Khai which is a region in the northeast of Thailand. Nong Khai is the capital of the region. It’s a border town with Laos. The great Mekong river crosses the city and the bridge of Lao-Thai friendship, built in 1994, connects Nong Khai to the Laotian capital, Vientiane. The people of this province speak Laotian.
THE NONG KHAI MUAY THAI GYM HAS A SIMPLE BUT AUTHENTIC INFRASTRUCTURE LIKE MOST OF THE GYMS OF THE NORTHEAST REGION OF THAILAND
This provincial gym was created by a passionate French Muay Thai, Marc JEAN. Based in Thailand for several years, Marc Jean married with a Thai woman who is a professional boxer.
