AKA Thailand

Check out this new sizzle video of a day at AKA Thailand

AKA Thailand is a premier Muay Thai training facility located in the heart of paradise. Phuket, Thailand is an amazingly beautiful place and Mike Swick’s new media company Savage Life Media captures it amazingly. They are doing some amazing videos and this is just one example of what you can expect from the new media company. For those of you who wondered what it was like to train and AKA Thailand, you can view this video for a peek inside the world class gym.

They have state of the art facilities there. There’s also an on-site restaurant where you can refuel after a hard day on the bikes, in the class or on the mats. They recently installed an awesome outdoor basketball court as well. There is literally everything in one location. Dana White was featured in an ad for the school earlier this year. You can see that video here.

Forever living the dream, Dan Bilzerian joins Mike Swick at AKA Thailand

forever-living-dream-bilzerian-swick-thailand

Dan Bilzerian is forever living the dream. The billionaire playboy travels the world, flanked by beautiful women wherever he goes. His latest stop was to visit our namesake, Mike Swick, at AKA Thailand.

Bilzerian and his army of beauties invaded Thailand and as usual, everything was first class for ‘The King of Instagram’. Whether it was restaurants or his accommodations, his daily experiences are something that we common folk want to have ONCE in our lifetime.

Bilzerian has been training at AKA Thailand while out there and according to Swick, “He’s been killing it”.

Check out his Thailand stories on his IG. He’s even crazy like Swick and visiting the ‘cobra pits’. Unlike Mike, Bilzerian doesn’t actually go in and risk his life.

Bienvenue. Dana White welcomes you to the supergym, AKA Thailand.

dana-white-supergym-aka-thailand

We have documented Dana White’s stay in Thailand pretty extensively here on MikeSwick.com. We have especially covered his time at the supergym, AKA Thailand.

If you haven’t noticed… You can’t buy Dana White to endorse your product. He will literally only get behind things that he believes in or wants to promote. After taking one look at the AKA Thailand facility, White was blown away and wanted to share his message with the public. That message is; If you are coming to Thailand, you must come to this fight haven.

So, take a virtual tour through the supergym and see all it has to offer. Familiar faces like Mike Swick, Cody Garbrandt, Mark Hunt, Luke Rockhold, Javier Mendez and Anastasia Yankova all make appearances in the video.

Jet Li Presents: Mike Swick – Life After UFC: Birth of AKA Thailand

Mike Swick

Ever wonder how AKA Thailand came about? Mike Swick tells us.

Mike Swick isn’t only our boss here at MikeSwick.com, he’s someone we can look up to as an example that hard work pays off.  This is a little story of how Mike parlayed his last UFC bout into an unbelievable gym, and more than that, an unbelievable life.  He defeated DaMaques Johnson at UFC on FOX 4 and in doing so also earned a fight night bonus. He took his purse and that bonus and used it for AKA Thailand.

Mike isn’t successful because he’s lucky, he works really hard at everything he does. “Luck Is What Happens When Preparation Meets Opportunity” is a quote attributed to the Roman philosopher Seneca. Mike makes his own opportunities and always delivers on the hard work. He has an unrelenting drive and desire to be the best. This video, presented by Jet Li gives some insight into that drive. It’s an interesting look how Mike feels about the gym and the country of Thailand in general.

Another project Mike is working hard at is his new video podcast. His upcoming guest is going to blow everyone away. Check out the Real Quick Mike Swick Podcast with Mike and Marc Bogutzki here.

This week on The Real Quick Podcast, we have our fearless leader Mike Swick on the show with his right-hand man, Marc.  We talk all kinds of stuff. We talk Thailand, the training facilities, the absolutely batshit crazy Swick does, petting wild monkeys, hanging in cobra pits, hanging out with Marc. It’s all dangerous, and it’s all here. Listen to Marc tell the story of going to Thai prison, being Mike Swick’s best man and no-showing the wedding and much more.

Typically Evan Shoman, Dion, and Dan are crazy, but this week, we pale in comparison. You don’t want to miss this, it’s insane!

ONE Featherweight Champion, Marat Gafurov, Wins BJJ Competition In Phuket, Thailand

The ONE FC Featherweight Champion Marat Gafurov, Wins BJJ Competition In Phuket, Thailand.

Marat Gafurov is a stone cold killer in the ONE Championship’s featherweight division, and it seems the same in any other competition he enters.

This past Friday, Marat was attending the Carlson Gracie BJJ competition at Phuket Top Team, in support of his Thai home gym AKA Thailand, and found himself in competition yet again. Though he was just spectating with the AKAT crew, when it came time for the Brown Belt division, they needed another entrant. Without hesitation, Marat grabbed a Gi and a belt and jumped in, against much larger opponents, and completely dominated.

Fighters are a different breed and Marat showed that with this perfect example how competitive a champions blood is.

Good job, Marat!

Gina Rodriguez’s Secret Escape to Thailand For Muay Thai

Gina Rodriguez - Golden Globes 2017 - MikeSwick.com

You may have seen the beautiful Gina Rodriguez showing off her stunning new body on the Golden Globes red carpet last night. What you may not know is where Gina and boyfriend Joe Locicero have been for the last month, working on it. Before attending the Golden Globes (where she was nominated for best actress in a television series), Gina escaped to Thailand. She spent the entire month of December training at the AKA Thailand super gym on the island of Phuket.

Gina is no beginner when it comes to fight training and has trained boxing for many years. Her father was a boxing referee and he taught her how to box, beginning at a young age. The love of training has stuck with her thorough the years. So when it was time to get away and get into shape, she chose Thailand as the place to do it.

The trip wasn’t just about training, however. The couple received the grand tour of Phuket by AKA’s very own Mike Swick.

“It was great to see how happy Gina and Joe were, here in Thailand. I took them to see all the cool excursions and they still hardly ever missed a training session. Gina trains really hard, takes it very serious, and Joe is already quite experienced as a fighter. He almost took a fight here actually, but it fell through at the last minute. Was really fun hanging out with them both!”
