Who is Jitti?
Jitti Damriram was born in Buriram, Northeast Thailand. This is an area (in)famous for Muay Thai. As an area champion he moved to Bangkok. There he fought at Rajadamnoen Stadium, one of the top stadiums in the country. He was a successful fighter, ranked in the top 5 between 1978-1981. With a record of over 80 fights he retired from the Muay Thai stadium and started teaching. He has taught in Japan, France, Germany, Switzerland and England.
In 1991, he established the original JittiGym, near Khao San Road. He was one of the first trainers to accept foreign students in Bangkok and he built an outstanding reputation as an International teacher – possibly the first in Thailand!
The new “JittiGym” opened on August 12th (The Queen’s Birthday) 2003.
All Jittigym trainers are highly respected ex-stadium fighters and champions with experience working abroad. The gym has a strong reputation for quality training at International and Thai, level from beginners to fighters.
Many Jittigym fighters are ranked in Thailand and at the stadiums, regularly winning tournaments and titles.
Jitti’s high standards for teaching and his life time knowledge of Muay Thai always provides authentic and effective training.
The Khao San site is no longer part of Jittigym.
