Where to Buy Muay Thai Gear in Bangkok 2018

The Ultimate Bangkok Muay Thai Shop Guide

(Update 24th July 2017: I update this page from time to time. I have included a price guide for each store where possible but I can’t guarantee it’s up to date as prices may have been adjusted since my last visit. Do NOT buy from some random Muay Thai shop in the malls in places like Nana as the prices are inflated. Read this before your trip to Bangkok if you intend to fit in some gear shopping. And if you find it useful, remember to share this article with your friends!)

If you have the opportunity to visit Bangkok, there is no doubt that shopping for Muay Thai stuff is going to be a definite feature on your to-do list. Hordes of tourists fly into the Thai capital daily to indulge in shopping. The prices used to be ridiculously cheap compared to what you get back home but rising costs in Thailand along with the world of online retail (i.e. Amazon) has bridged the gap over the years. Prices for the top brands have increased over the last year but overall, prices in Bangkok are still cheaper compared to online prices. More importantly, there’s nothing like trying the gear or testing the equipment out in person before you hand over the money. The sexy allure of holding Muay Thai gear in your hands is a pure and ecstatic feeling. Not to mention the overwhelming range of available choices!

I have consolidated a  list of Muay Thai shops that I frequent every time I visit Bangkok as well as others that are well worth a visit. I literally went the distance to collect all the information but hey, anything for my readers. This list is really as comprehensive as it gets on the web. It may not be definitive as I have opted to highlight the more centralised and accessible shops in this article for convenience but these are the shops with the best selection at the best prices.

Note: You will be able to find all the common and popular brands in the shops I have featured, but if you have a particular gear/apparel model in mind, you may go away empty-handed and disappointed. This is because a lot of the shops, even the official stores, do not carry the full catalog of their products. But come with no expectations, and be prepared to be blown away by the prices, friendly service and seemingly unlimited options.

Note: All prices listed below are in Thai Baht.

It’s easy to get spoilt for choices. Overcome your choice paralysis by checking out my gear reviews:

Super Export Shop

If you only have time for one shop to get your Muay Thai gear, this is THE ONE to go to. After 1 year, this is still my top recommendation for getting Muay Thai gear in Bangkok. Everything is reasonably priced and always on par with -if not better than- the official stores. Super Export Shop is as the name suggests, does a lot of wholesale export business. They stock almost every made-in-Thailand gear from brands like Twins Special, Fairtex, Top King, Yokkao, Raja, Thaismai, Danger Equipment and even authentic items from the (Buakaw) Banchamek Gym. This really saves a lot of trouble from having to shop-hop. This is also the only store in Bangkok where you can get Booster Fight Gear, as seen on Kunlun Fight, All-Star Fight and worn by the fighters at Banchamek Gym.

Service is personable and friendly, and you are welcome to take your time to try out the gear and equipment. There’s also a clean toilet in the back you can use for trying out the apparel. The gear may be wrapped up in plastic but feel free to ask to open up for testing. First class service here. They have sales from time to time with the best prices anywhere in Bangkok. I never, ever, leave empty-handed from this shop.

Price Guide: There are many different brands and gear here with prices matching the official stores (i.e. Twins, Fairtex, Top King and Yokkao). You can check the prices for these brands below at the respective shop guide. Ask for discounts.

How to get there: I usually base myself around Sukhumvit area so this shop is just a few minutes by motorbike taxi. If you are going by the subway, the nearest station is Queen Sirikit National Convention Center (QSNCC) MRT station. It is about ½ a mile (1 km) walk or alternatively, hop on a motorbike taxi and ask to be taken to “Rompo” which is a hotel located right beside the building where the shop reside. As of writing, motorbike taxi will cost around 30-50 baht from Asok/Phrom Pong BTS stations and 15-20 baht from QSNCC MRT station.

The shop sits on the ground level and face the road so you should be able to spot it easily. While you are there, head down the road for an exquisitely Asian experience of the fascinating Khlong Toey Market.

Opening Hours: Mon-Sat from 10am to 7pm (Closed on Sundays)

Yokkao Shop

The store size is small but stocks a very good selection of their training gear, including their popular CarbonFit shorts and the latest collections from this season. More importantly, the retail store is located in the same premise as the gym where Muay Thai legend, Saenchai, trains daily. (Read my review here: “Gym Review: Yokkao Training Center Bangkok”) So even if you don’t buy anything, you can drop by for a training session or just ogle at a Muay Thai master training. You will also catch the other Yokkao fighters like Singdam, Pakorn, Manachai and Spencer Brown.

You will find everything here heavily discounted compared to their web store prices. Additionally, all gloves are priced the same regardless of their sizes/weights. Yokkao gear features very sharp and cool designs, so if that’s your thing, this is the place to get them and you can put them to use straight away for a training session.

Price Guide:

Gloves Shin Guards
Size Matrix Ready to Fight Size Price
8-16oz 1999 2799 S-XL 2799

How to get there
: Take the BTS train to Asok station and then head for the Exchange Tower exit. You can either take a 5 minutes walk along the busy Soi 16 traffic or a speedy ride on one of the many motorbike taxis at near the entrance to Soi 16 to reach the gym. Just tell the rider to take you to “Yokkao” or “Muay Thai”. As of writing, the bike ride costs 10 baht (or 15). There are a few ways to get there and I’m familiar with the Asok route. Alternatively, you can take the subway to Queen Sirikit National Convention Center MRT station and change to a motorbike taxi.

Opening Hours: Mon-Sat from 730am-1130am and 230pm-6pm (Closed on Sundays)

Boon Sport

Boon is a brand founded by Australian Scott Marr and this store at On Nut (along Sukhumvit Soi 81) is where you can expect the whole Boon shebang. Everything they have is laid out systematically in the spacious shop so you will have no trouble looking for what you want. They stock the standard Muay Thai goods such as gloves, shin guards, headgear, shorts and training gear as well. I’m particularly fond of their t-shirt designs as the prints are very “Thai”. I also recommend the plain black retro shorts which are cheap and good (400 baht). They offer shorts customization service and generally take around 2-3 weeks. However, if all you need is just a simple custom work with your name, they might be able to get it out within 2-3 days. Just check with any of the friendly staff manning the store.

The staff was friendly and I was left to browse around the store but she attended to my many queries promptly and patiently. Boon prices are very reasonable and this is certainly a shop worth stopping by.

Price Guide:

14oz 1600 1550 XL 1480
16oz 1670 1600 XXL 1550

How to get there:
The best way to go is to take the skytrain to On Nut BTS station. When you arrive at the station, head to exit 4, you will see Tesco Lotus on your right but take the flight of steps on your left to the side of the road (down the overhead bridge) opposite of Tesco. As always, you can hop on a motorbike taxi ride and ask to be taken to “Boon” or “Muay Thai” which is a quick 2 minutes away. As of writing, the ride should cost you 20 baht. Otherwise it’s a 10-15 minutes walk.

Opening Hours: Mon-Sat from 9am to 6pm (Closed on Sundays)

Top King
top king bangkok

bangkok muay thai gear

This is the official Top King store in Bangkok and they are much better stocked than the last 2 times I visited. Previously, I had always hope to get something there but I always walk away empty-handed. So I guess third time really is the charm. The service is minimal (but adequate) and the staff pretty much leave you to browse but they are happy to answer to questions. There is a wide selection of TKB stuff for sale and the store is very accessible so don’t miss it. Shorts customization is available here but will take around 1 month.

Note: It’s worth mentioning that a new customization shop has opened up next to Top King. It’s called Lumpenee Fights and the shop itself stock some lovely shorts using the Lumpinee brand shorts. It’s a one-woman show and some English is spoken here. Custom work takes around 2-3 weeks and is worth dropping in to take a look.

How to get there:
By subway, the nearest MRT station is Lumphini which is not far from Sukhumvit district. Take exit 1, turn right and head down the road with Lumpini Park View apartment on your right. It’s about 5 minutes walk till you hit an overhead bridge. After the bridge, make the first right at the alley and you should see the shop

Opening Hours: Mon-Fri from 10am to 5pm (Closed Saturdays and Sundays)

2) National Stadium Area

Action Zone
bangkok muay thai gear

Action Zone is one of the most well-known Muay Thai gear shops in Bangkok. Its claim to fame is a friendly service and of course even friendlier prices. The shop is very modest-sized and cramped with Muay Thai gear stacked up on all sides of the walls and in the back of the store. Here, you will find a good range of Fairtex and Twins gear, as well as their house brand. I highly recommend their house brand hand wraps which are cheap (180 baht after discount) and are very good quality.

Not the most attractive shop-front and rather cramped in the store. In fact, the whole store is in need of a fresh coat of paint. But the service and prices make up for it. They may not stock everything from the Twins and Fairtex catalog but you can email them a month ahead of your visit and they should be able to get you sorted out. Shorts customization service is available and will take 2-3 weeks.

Price Guide:

Size Twins Special Gloves (BGVL-3) Fairtex Gloves (BGV1)

14oz 2000 2120
16oz 2100 2120
18oz 2200 2240

How to get there
: There are a few gear shops in this area possibly due to the presence of the National Stadium. To get to the shop, take the BTS to National Stadium station. Take exit 2 and head down the road with the stadium to your left. Keep walking and you will see the huge Tesco on your right on the other side of the road. Keep going in the same direction and cross the street at the intersection where you will see a green building. Just a few more steps and you will find the famed Action Zone shop.

Opening Hours: Mon-Sat from 830am to 530pm (Closed on Sundays)

Copa Sport
bangkok muay thai gear

Located right next to Action Zone is another family-run mom and pop Muay Thai gear store. This is the place to be if you want to land yourself some old skool brand, Windy gloves and shin guards. They also stock some Fairtex and Twins gear which are fairly priced. As I am personally not a Windy fan, I did not buy anything from the store but the granny and other staff here are absolutely lovely people who left me to browse and take pictures. Windy gloves are cheaper than the bigger names and some of the UK folks I met during training at FA Group Gym swear by them. If you like your gear old skool, simple and affordable, Windy can be your thing.

Opening Hours: Mon-Sat from 9am to 5pm and Sun from 10am to 4pm (Action Zone is closed on Sunday so you might want to visit on other days so as to visit both shops).

SKS Empire
bangkok muay thai gear

bangkok muay thai gear

A young brand and a very new shop. Founded and run by 2 enterprising brothers from France, SKS Empire seems to take a lot of their design influences from streetwear and hip hop culture (the shop was playing hip hop music when I visited). This is an upcoming brand to watch for as they are partnering with Best of Siam promotion that is held at the Lumpinee Stadium and features top fighters from Thailand and around the world. Fabio Pinca won his Rajadamnern at the Best of Siam event held in February this year.

SKS stands for Sport Kombat Strategy but also an abbreviation for Singklongsi Muay Thai gym where the older brother (Romain) trained at for many years. Besides their own line of fight wear, they also offer custom services for fight wear from design to delivery. All handmade in Thailand. Definitely a must-visit. Check out their website to get a feel of their designs.

The brand has a few collections with different price range. I have included a price guide for their core collection.

How to get there
: The shop is across the street from Action Zone/Copa and also opposite of Tesco.

Opening Hours: Mon-Sat from 9am to 7pm (Closed on Sundays)

Thai Battle

For those of you holidaying with family and short on time, this might be a good option. Thai Battle is a local brand who’s been around for a few years now but remains off the radar of most Muay Thai fans. The shop is located in the family-friendly MBK Center which is a popular tourist spot and a very centralised location. They have been sponsoring MBK Fight Nights (an promotion that is held from time to time in front of MBK mall) and random events in Bangkok so I think they are more legit than your generic “Thai Boxing” brands in the same mall.

Thai Battle manufactures a whole range of Muay Thai products, seriously everything you need from gloves to shin guards to mongkhons, head guards and a good range of kids gear/apparel. Prices are in-line with the big brands, I can’t vouch for the quality of their gloves but their shorts are pretty good quality. I recommend the Sukothai range of shorts where they use an ethnic Thai fabric for a very unique look. Given that it’s in MBK, you might be able to bargain down the prices a little but don’t take my word for it. If they are firm on their prices, please respect that. I encountered friendly service and there’s a little manufacturing operations at the store where you could possibly get some custom work done on the spot. 

Price Guide:

Gloves Shorts
All Sizes 2000 All Designs 850

How to get there: MBK is located right next to National Stadium BTS Skytrain station. Getting to the store is the tricky part. They are located on level 3 on the other end away from Tokyu department store. It’s a maze in that corner but you will find them along Zone 3D Soi 6.

Operating Hours: MBK is open 10am to 10pm daily. To be safe, plan on arriving after 12pm.

3) Lumpinee & Rajadamnern Stadiums

Twins Specialbangkok muay thai gear

If you happen to visit Lumpinee or Rajadamnern stadiums to watch some fights, you will find the official Twins Special stores at both locations. Very well-stocked with the largest collection of Twins Special gloves at both locations. Prices are fixed at the official retail prices. You might be able to find them at lower prices elsewhere but you won’t always necessarily find the exact model or size you want. (Note: There is also a Top King store at Lumpinee stadium with the same prices as the original store at the old location)

Price Guide:

Gloves Shin Guards
Size BGVL-3 Fancy Size SGL-2
8oz 1700 1900 S 1700
10oz 1800 2000 M 1850
12oz 1900 2100 L 2000
14oz 2000 2200 XL 2250
16oz 2100 2300

How to get there
: Lumpinee stadium is a pain to get to. It is located about 18km (about 11 miles) from the nearest train station (Mo Chit BTS or Chatuchak MRT), so the easiest way to get there is by taxi/car. Unfortunately, the fights start around 630pm which is at the peak of the mad Bangkok rush hour. The slow engine grind to the stadium takes between 1 to 2 hours but going back, the trip to train station is just 30 minutes or less. Tell the driver that you want to go to Lumphini Boxing Stadium at Ram Inthra road.

Going to Rajadamnern stadium is a lot more pleasant. It’s about 5km (3 miles) or less from the nearest train station (Phaya Thai) and takes 30 minutes drive even during peak hours.

Opening Hours: Stores are open whole day on fight nights. For Rajadamnern Stadium: Fight nights (Sun, Mon, Wed, Thu) from 10am to 10pm, Closed on Saturdays. For Lumpinee Stadium: Fight nights (Tue, Fri, Sat) from 10am to 10pm (Please check event timings before heading down)

4) Fairtex Pro

Fairtex Outlet @ EmQuartier Q Stadium Zone

There are so many Fairtex Pro shops in Bangkok that it warrants a section of its own. I only visited 2 of the more centralised ones at IM Park and luxury mall, EmQuartier. The IM Park outlet (located in the National Stadium area, see above) is a proper, bigger store front and stocks more items than the outlet at Q Stadium Zone within EmQuartier shopping mall. However, EmQuartier is a lot more accessible and has a very good selection of Fairtex gear to choose from. The service is prompt at both locations and you should be able to find what you need at either stores. Fairtex Pro takes pride in their products and it seems this extends towards their store operations.

Prices at the stores seem to be more expensive than Fairtex stockists like Super Export Shop or Action Zone (See above) but the benefit of shopping here (especially at the malls like Emquartier or Mega Bangna or Asiatique) is a more convenient and comfortable experience. If you are on a family trip, the rest of the family members can go about their shopping in the malls while you take your time to salivate over the extensive Fairtex product selection.

Price Guide:

Size Gloves
6oz 1900
8oz 2000
10oz 2100
12oz 2200

16oz 2400

How to get there
: To get to EmQuartier, simply take the skytrain to Phrom Phong BTS station which is located right at its door steps. The Q Stadium is located on in the Waterfall Quartier. To get to IM Park, first take the skytrain to National Stadium. From there, it’s at least a 20-minute walk under the sun to the mall. I recommend the motorbike taxi as usual which costs 30baht as of writing.

Opening Hours: 10am to 9pm Daily

Where to Stay in Bangkok

Whenever I travel to Bangkok, I prefer to base myself in a more centralized and accessible location near to a BTS or MRT station, as the metro is the best way to get to around central Bangkok. This gives me easy access to most of the shops recommended above as well as a wider range of facilities and other conveniences. If you are planning a trip to Bangkok but haven’t decided on your accommodation, there is one area I most highly recommend:

Asok-Sukhumvit Junction
In my opinion, the Asok junction with Sukhumvit road is the best place to stay in Bangkok. It does not get any more accessible than this prime area. Four reasons to base yourself here: 1) With Sukhumvit MRT and Asok BTS stations in the vicinity, you can get to practically anywhere in central Bangkok easily. 2) Super Export Shop, Yokkao Shop and Emquartier are a short walk or motorbike-taxi ride away. 3) There are tonnes of massage places and eateries. 4) The whole stretch of Sukhumvit road is a shopper’s paradise and there are loads of activities you can busy yourself with here. If you are looking to eat, drink, shop and be merry, search no further. This is the place for you. The area and the public transport offer easy access to several top Muay Thai gyms for the ultimate vacation to savour all of what Bangkok has to offer.

I highly recommend using Agoda to find the top hotels in Bangkok – I use it to book the hotels for ALL my trips ANYWHERE and have never had a problem. You can check the hotel ratings, prices and other users’ reviews easily. Don’t forget to book your hotel through my link below (or click here). That way, you don’t spend any extra penny and I get a little commission from your booking that helps to keep this website running.

I hope this guide will be helpful for planning your next trip to Bangkok. Some of the stores that I missed out in my latest round-up include Thaismai (located somewhat near to Asiatique), and Raja (located behind Rajadamnern Stadium). Both brands are worth a visit as they are are old establishments with very affordable gear and equipment. I will be sure to cover these shops and more on my subsequent update.

If there is a shop guide/review you would like to see featured on this site, please leave me a comment or message and I will do my best to accommodate to the request. If you are a shop in Bangkok and would like to be featured in the article or on the website, feel free to contact me and I will be happy to drop by for a visit on my next trip.

Happy shopping!

  4. Markus says

    Thanks for the article. Maybe gonna get my gear there for a change. I normally bought all my stuff at action zone near nation Stadium. I mostly buy fairtex or Twins gear. Do you know the prices at the fairtex store at the emquartier mall? I was once at a fairtex store in pattaya and it was pretty expenive compared to action zone shop. I also just found out there is a fairtex store at asiatique near chaopraya river. Gonna check it out the next days .

    1. Kay says

      Hi Markus, glad that it’s helpful. Action Zone prices can oftentimes work out to be cheaper than the official Fairtex stores because of the discounts they give whereas it’s fixed price at the latter. I haven’t been to the Fairtex at asiatique but I figure the prices would be pretty much standardised. The Fairtex at I’M Park has more comprehensive stock the last I checked. Happy shopping!

  5. Ramses says

    I was looking to create my own brand. It has been very difficult to find someone that manufactures custom label gloves, shin guards, wraps, head gear, shorts (mma/muay thai), t-shirts, rashguards and if possible gis.

    Any help or guidance would be appreciated

    1. Kay says

      For Muay Thai gear, you might want to try talking to the people at ActionZone. Or you may want to try emailing Fairtex who has its own factory. Hope that helps and let me know if it works out.

  6. […] good quality gloves between 50 to 80 USD. The cheapest place to get Muay Thai gloves is of course, Thailand. That is obviously out of the question for most people and doesn’t make much sense to travel […]

    Thank you for your post. I have a question.
    Is that topking shop updated
    price recently?
    the topking shop near sukhumvit close on Saturday? T.T.

    and another Topking store near the new lumpini stadium closed on Saturday?

    1. Kay says

      Hi, the top king store near sukhumvit (near the old lumphini) is close on weekends. The other Top King store is in the new Lumphini stadium is open on Saturday but to be safe, plan on getting there during the saturday show which usually starts around 430pm. check http://www.muaythai2000.com/en/calendar.php for show timing. good luck finding your gear!

  8. Dave says

    Excellent article! Very helpful in order to give an idea of whether it is worth waiting until I get to Bangkok, or just pick the gear up at home. Keep up the good work!

    1. Kay says

      Hi Dave, thank you for your kind words!

  9. Zeke says

    Hi! A great article, but can be even better if a Map locator was used. Thanks!

    1. Kay says

      Hi Zeke! Thanks for the great suggestion. I will update the article with map locator soon!

  10. Tini says

    Do these shops only sell Muay Thai gear? What about just boxing gloves? Thanks!

    1. Kay says

      Hi Tini. If by boxing gloves you mean boxing brands like Winning, Cleto Reyes, etc., you won’t find them in the shops recommended here. However, you will be able to find lots of Boxing gloves by Muay Thai brands like Twins, Fairtex, Windy and many others. These are very popular options and as far as I know, many boxers use Thai brands for boxing too. Hope that helps!

  11. […] the price hike was made by Yokkao’s established rivals to narrow the price difference. Over at Super Export Shop in downtown Bangkok, the store carries a sizeable range of Yokkao products at very attractive […]

  12. […] No Muay Thai vacation to Bangkok is complete without loading up on a luggage full of gear to bring back home. Bangkok prices for Muay Thai gear are simply unbeatable. All the top Thai brands are here and all at the most competitive prices. Fairtex, Twins Special, Top King, Yokkao, you name them all. Outside of Bangkok, you are better off buying them off Amazon. That is why no one ever leaves Bangkok empty-handed. (See my guide on where to shop Muay Thai gear in Bangkok) […]

  13. Simon says

    I was searching a guide for Muay Thai gear like that since a long time. Since Lumpini Stadium was moved all shops located at this area became also (mostly) moved.
    Today I visited the actionzone and these shop was a pretty good recommendation. Thanks!

    In the past I also dealed with Thaismai shop located at
    2354/19,21 Charoen Krung 84,
    Bang Kho Laem
    Bangkok 10120
    and have also a really good experience with them.

    1. Kay says

      Hi Simon! Glad you found the guide helpful. Will be sure to include Thaismai in my next update. Cheers and thanks for your support.

  14. Mike says

    Hi, the guide is great, thanks for putting it together. I’ve been ripped off before in Nana, MBK, etc, so great to get this info. I’m currently living in Vietnam and we don’t get much Muay Thai equipment here. I’m looking for heavy bag chains and can’t find them in VN or in any of the shops you have recommended. I know it’s a long shot but do you know if any of these shops sell them or any other shops that do? I have a friend visiting BKK this week who will get them for me. Any help would be really greatly appreciated. Kind regards, Mike.

    1. Kay says

      Thanks Mike. Heavy bag chains.. this is a tough one. My best bet would be Super Export Shop who has connections to all the brands. Send them a message over Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/superexportshop/) and they might be able to get them. Alternatively, maybe you can consider getting some swivel, chains and carabiner and DIY?

  15. Wntan says

    I don’t remember it being this expensive the last time I bought mine at actionzone.. but it was a good 3-4 years back.

    1. Kay says

      Hi. Prices went up for many of the brands over the last year. But Action Zone still gives discount, as does Super Export Shop at Sukhumvit.

  16. Daniel says


    Last time I and my girlfriend lived in Thailand she trained Muay Thai. She absolutely fell in love with Buakaw Banchamek. So, now as we’re back in Bangkok again I’d like to get her a Buakaw poster for her upcoming birthday. Do you know where I could find this?


    1. Kay says

      Hi Daniel, I have not seen posters of Buakaw for sale in Bangkok before. Your best bet is to check with Banchamek Gym. Good luck!

  17. esther says

    hello! thanks for this informative article. i was wondering if any of the above shops does customization for gloves? just basic printing of names. cos i notes that u highlighted those who customize the shorts.

    1. Kay says

      Hi Esther, as far as I know, Yokkao offers stitching of names on gloves. I cannot confirm this but my guess is that Boon and Top King will likely offer the custom service for gloves too. I have tried asking Twins Special at Raja and Lumpinee about shorts customization and they wouldn’t do it so they are off. The other thing to take note is that custom service typically take a fair bit of time. I would figure around 1-2 weeks for that. Good luck!

  18. Kenshiro says

    A new shop opened up last May when I was there called Bull Sports you should consider investigating next time

      Hi Kenshiro. Thank you for your comment. I believe the shop has been opened for at least a couple of years now. I will make sure to check it on my next roundup. Specially for you. 😀

    Hey Kay! I am from Malaysia and your blog is extremely helpful especially for foreigner like us who wish to buy Martial Art gear, i will continue to follow closely with your post, so please keep writing!

    About my shopping experience, i stayed at Pattuwan area so i went to ActionZone and bought a Fairtex BGV1 Falcon edition, which will cost around 4,000baht in Malaysia but i bought about 2,200baht from there, what a great deal! And i bought their house brand hand wrap. I gotta say you are damn right about their hand wrap, the quality is so good which put my current hand wrap in shame.

    One thing you may want to update is they open at 8:00am, as i went there first thing in the morning.

    Once again, thank you for writing it so detail for us, and i can’t wait to read more from you.

    Cheers mate!

      Hi William! Thank you for support and glad you found the information helpful.

      It’s amazing that they open at 8:00am now! Most Thai shops usually open 10 or even later. Thank you for your update.

      Please share the article and website with your friends in Malaysia!

    Heya Kaye,

    Great article and with very detailed information. My Son just started to learn Muay Thai here in Sydney… and we are at a lost trying to track down Fighter brand. We manage to track down the store but even if you translate it… there is no guideline for prices… http://www.fighterthailand.com. Any chance you have some info on this? we are looking at getting some heavy bags.

    1. Kay says

      Hi Matthew, I am not aware of this brand. There are no prices listed on their website. You may try Amazon.com. See this article on heavy bags: http://www.muaythaicitizen.com/best-muay-thai-heavy-bag/

  22. […] I managed to cop a pair of the hard-to-find Superbon Banchamek shorts (pictured here) and they are now my favorite shorts to train in. Comfortable on the waist with a slim retro-cut and a modest side-slit just the way I like it. Fits true to size. Again, these are priced high (in Euros) on their official website but are very affordable in Bangkok where you will find them exclusively at Super Export Shop. […]

    Hi, thanks so much for diligently updating your articles. Found this article very useful when I had to buy gloves at TopKing. Your directions were easy to understand and follow. Long live your blog!

    I’m looking for more MMA options. Are there any stores that specialize in MMA gear. If not, which store has the most options/highest quality?

    1. Kay says

      Hi, you can try Fairtex which has a reasonable range of MMA gear. They have many outlets in Bangkok. See article for some of their locations.

    Thank you for information.
    When I traveled in Bangkok last week, I used several stores posted on this content.
    Especially, the staff of Action Zone was kind, rich in inventory, the price was also cheap.

    1. Kay says

      Hi Yoshi! You are welcome. Glad you find this useful.

  30. Fritz says

    Thank you for this detailed and very helpful information. God bless the internet and people like you, who give information like this away for free!
    From your list I visited Super Export Shop and Action Zone. Must say that Iiked Action Zone quite a bit. Dont let the shitty apperarance there fool you, they are well stocked and had colours of Twin gloves that Super Export did not have. All in all I would recommend to definitely visit some more shops, as the inventory is always a bit different. Just before Action Zone is another sports shop that sells all kinds of stuff from Badminton rackets to volleyballs. But they also had Twins gloves for very good prices so its worth checking that out too.

    1. Kay says

      Yes, agree absolutely. Both those stores are my favorite stores in Bangkok. Possibly the best Muay Thai stores in the WORLD!! 😀

  31. Megan Courage says

    Thanks so much for this list it was really useful. My brother asked me to buy him some Top King shin guards while I was in Thailand. As the Top King shop is closed on the weekend I went to the Super Export Shop. I was based in the Suhkamvit area already and the directions and map were really good. I had a picture of what I wanted and they knew exactly what it was and got it for me straight away, they even threw in a freebie of pain relief cream. Thanks.

    1. Kay says

      Hi Megan, glad it all worked out for you!

    Muay Thai Mall near Chatuchak is a great place to buy gear also.

    1. Kay says

      It’s near to Sutthisan and I wasn’t impressed with the selection when I visited.
