Luktupfah Muay Thai Camp was one of the original famously named Muay thai camps in Bangkok.

Since that time and Captain Surasaks retirement, the gym had been taken over by a few different hands, not of which succeeded in restoring the camp to its original glory.

Providing individual training and specialising in teams preparing for Championships and events in Muay Thai, Muay Boran and more. Also, special tactical training for International police/special forces groups.
Recently, Luktupfah became an officiated ‘School’ for Muay Thai and Martial Arts, accredited by the Ministry of Education of Thailand. As well as being, the head office for the Kru Muaythai Association (K.M.A), World Muay Thai Organisation and World Muay Boran federation (W.M.B.F).
