Our Story

On August 29, 2016, we proudly opened Xmax Thai Boxing Club with the aim of helping foreigners fulfill their Muay Thai dreams and experience training and living in Thailand. However we soon recognised the significance of providing a comprehensive learning experience with a Thailand Muay Thai Visa, so we pursued our certification and successfully obtained it in November 2020. This milestone led us to establish “Chiang Mai Inter Muay Thai School,” now enabling us to facilitate the process of obtaining an Education Visa for those interested in immersing themselves in our national sport for up to 1 year.
