Kombat Group BJJ Camp is an Thai based martial arts and fitness camp specialising in combat training and weight loss programmes. This 3 month combat fight camp focuses on Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and grappling at its core along with open mat sessions to get you competition ready. The camp although focussing on BJJ can be combined with other fighting arts such as Muay Thai, Boxing or Krava Maga as well as their in house weight loss programme. 

The camp is all-inclusive and run by the current WBA Asia boxing champion, ABF boxing champion and 6 times Muay Thai world champion Christian Daghio. The gym is located on the outskirts of sunny Pattaya just 90 minutes from Bangkok Suvarnabhumi airport. 

This specially built gym has been designed so you can spend an amazing holiday in Thailand learning martial arts whilst getting fit and healthy. Trainers at the camp are committed to push you to become the best version of yourself. It doesn't matter what age or shape you are – everybody's goal is just as important.


Kombat Group's BJJ Training Camp includes one hour of BJJ per day from Monday to Saturday as well as an evening grappling class also Monday to Saturday. In addition to this 2/3 times per week you will have access to the camps open mat sessions. In this way those who attend the camp have a good balance of training and free time so they can hit the gym relax and recover or take part in self organised practice sessions. The camp offers both a budget fighter option and a more comfortable solution with accommodation in side the camp resort. The fighter option is not in the holiday resort, accommodation is in the camps dormitory. With this option you don't get access to the resorts swimming pool but it does include 3 thai meals per day in their Thai restaurant. The more comfortable solution inside the resort has the same amount of training but with high quality private accommodation a/c, swimming pool and 3 meals a day in the camps western restaurant inside the resort.

I was looking for a place to train purely for fitness and weightloss (it also caters for a variety of other areas Muay Thai etc). Kombat group was my go to place as it also incorporated Muay Thai into the classes. Wow if your looking for a place to get out of your comfort zone and push your limits this is the place. Its rustic no aircon has all thats required and has awesome trainers to help you achieve whatever it is you are looking for. You wont be disappointed here i went about 2 or so years ago and it was an unbelievable experience. Has a great kitchen/restaurant which serves great food and juices. Just a great place to train it has friendly staff and worth the price you pay.

Effective training program in a charming and relaxing camp away from distractions by Eva

When I think of some of my best vacations, my two-week stint at Kombat Group springs to my mind. It's a great and effective training program in a charming well equipped facility which attracts a lot of interesting and inspiring people. Here’s a quick breakdown of what to expect.

“THE TRAINING PROGRAM IS WORTH ITS WEIGHT IN GOLD…” I had the idea to have a more active holiday. When my two sisters decided to join me to Thailand, I was a little apprehensive. We weren't sure what to expect. We were somewhat fit and one of my sisters, due to medical reasons, hadn’t exercised for two months prior to our trip. I wondered whether we would be able to keep up with 6-8 hours of training daily and with the other more professional fighters around. Now that we're back, I realize all that concern was pointless.

The trainers are very quick to gauge your level of fitness and they alter the exercises accordingly. The training is intense and rewarding. I began to see how my technique, stamina and overall fitness was greatly improving in a matter of days. The fact that you are training with world champions, fighters, amateurs and complete newbies - is very inspiring. We never felt like there was a division between the more experienced fighters and the rest of us. Quite often, whenever we were taking a break, I would watch the more professional boxers train. It was my first time to see that level of skill and I drank it all in.

Christiano, Joel and Wud, were our favourite instructors. Encouraging, challenging, approachable and humorous, they gave it their all. Training in an open air gym was challenging ( because of the humidity) and charming (I loved the feeling of working out against the backdrop of a thunderstorm).

The variety of martial arts on site is impressive. We did functional training, muay thai, western boxing, yoga and krav maga. The latter two were surprising interesting addition to our regime. I had never done Krav Maga before and the instructor has a very engaging way of teaching. He really makes you feel like you’re going to be attacked. Yoga in the evenings with Barbara (and Blinky the cat) was a relaxing way of cooling down and getting a good stretch. All in all, the training program is worth its weight in gold. It really works. Now that I'm back home, my trainer has told me he has seen a significant improvement in my technique and fitness level. In my first week back, I felt like I was bouncing off the walls. I was working out twice a day and still felt like I had more energy to keep going. It was a tremendous feeling & for that alone, I recommend it to nearly everyone I meet.


Management: We were greeted by the wonderful twinkle-eyed Barbara on arrival. Her cheerfulness was something I came to look forward to and then look up to. She's very efficient and is currently studying more about yoga and eastern tradition. She adds a spiritual depth to the experience - which was very uplifting. There also two compelling reasons (in the form of two beautiful black cats) to keep visiting her office. In fact, all the staff on the camp are friendly and approachable. What's more, I found the process of booking to be very easy and straightforward. Toy answered all my emails promptly and payment through PayPal was very convenient. The shop on the premises has good quality wraps, gloves and shirts - which you can buy or rent. I bought a pair of gloves to take home with me and now wear it with pride.

Ambience: When I was booking the retreat, I expected the place to be clean and basic. It was so much more. The landscaping of the entire camp is so quaint and charming. Leafy greens artfully creep over the trellises arching over the manicured lawns. The camp is home to a few quiet little spots with benches and ponds glittering with gold fish. Christian lives at the camp with wife and daughter - meaning, you see little children running around and playing tag. Nala and Simba, the two pit bulls perpetually stationed in the kitchen, are always up for a game of tug or a belly rub. The two outdoor cats, Inky and Blinky - slink about with the premises ready to joins in for a yoga class. All in all, the camp is endearingly charming – a far stretch from the testosterone-fueled ambience one would expect from a boxing gym.

Facilities: The rooms are spacious, well airconditioned, cleaned, well equipped and cleaned on a regular basis. The three of us stayed in a deluxe room and found it to be spacious and comfortable. The wi-fi reception was exceptional - I was genuinely impressed by it. The verandas in front of each room was a welcomed spot to dry out our wraps and gloves or just cool down before we entered our rooms. While you won't find any bugs in your room, it is Thailand: so it is helpful to burn a coil at night to keep away the bugs. It might be a good idea to bring a fly-swatter with you, if a few sneak into the room. The dinners were impressive – huge juicy steaks with all the trimmings. We always opted for the breakfast vanilla protein shake, which hit the spot after a 3 hour morning workout on an empty stomach. I was surprised to learn how little food you really need to sustain a particularly active life. When we asked for our food to be made with a little more spices (for our Indian palettes) - they obliged and catered to our needs. We frequently used the washing machine on the camp which was very convenient and cheap to keep the (many) clothes we used during our stay. The massage parlor was excellent - it is a 15 minute walk - which isn't too far. However, after training, it seemed to be a rather draining walk - so we went there only twice during our stay. Renting a scooter would've been a good idea in this regard. Additionally, Kombat Group organizes regular trips into the city for different tourist attractions including muay thai matches - although we didn't opt for any of the excursions, as we were happy to stay on camp.


All in all, we highly recommend visiting Kombat Group. You meet a lot of interesting people at the camp and it is a great way to disconnect from the distractions of city life and focus on your own wellness. As three women, we found the area very safe and accessible. It was a great way to spend quality time with your family and because there are so many types of training available, you can go there with your partner even if the two of you have different requirements and interests. While the majority of trainers and students are men, we never felt out of place or not welcomed. Honestly, if I could have I would have extended my stay beyond my initial two weeks. I could easily see my self staying there for two more weeks or even two more months.
