“I’m so proud of him (Mike Swick) and the bad ass gym he built there, I can’t wait to come see it live. I will be there, I’m coming to Thailand!”
“The gym looks amazing! Mike Swick is a good team mate and coach and has been successful at every level. I can’t wait to visit.”
“This is one of the most amazing gyms I’ve ever seen, the most amazing gym. AKA Thailand is a destination for anybody of any level of fitness or for whatever you’re looking for, this gym covers everything. There’s so many levels of fitness here. They have the Muay Thai area, the MMA area, the fitness area which is a whole other level. This has surpassed my expectation by far, I had no idea it was going to be like this, I’m literally in ahhh. AKA Thailand was one of the best experiences of my life. It was a beautiful place and the best gym I’ve ever seen.”
“It’s one of the most beautiful gyms in the world. They’re on the way to building a bigger better AKA then I have here in San Jose, California. AKA Thailand has everything AKA HQ has. They have great wrestling, great Jiu Jitsu and better Thai boxing.”
“I’ve been watching the build of AKA Thailand from day one, It looks great.”
“AKA Thailand has been amazing, like I said, I’ve been looked after really well. I’m in the best physical shape for this fight, i’m looking forward to fighting. I don’t think I could be prepared any better.”

“AKA Thailand is the best gym I’ve trained at, an amazing facility catering to all aspects of fitness whether it’s MMA, Muay Thai or any other discipline.”
“Quite simply impressive! MMA fans keep a close eye on AKA Thailand.”
“AKA has a massive reputation in the MMA world and with an upcoming fight here in Thailand, I was looking for a place to come and finish the final days of my preparation.” I thought it would be a good idea to not only train at a gym with such a high reputation but to check out the brand new facilities. The facilities are second to none. I’ve trained at other MMA based camps (in Phuket) and I haven’t seen anything like this.”
“It’s paradise here. I’m definitely getting the best training and the duo; I wanted to come out here and still have a vacation because it’s my hiatus from the show but I also wanted to train and transform and these guys (Muay Thai trainers) have definitely helped me transform…”
“It’s my new home (AKA Thailand), I don’t think there’s going to be a year that goes by that I don’t come back out here.”
