I am wondering how many of you have been to both or ether one. I would prefer to go to Holland but the experience seems so much easier and more convenient in Thailand. I would appreciate any help or input on the two.

ah, can't comment on Holland as I've never been there, but Thailand is the shit. Cheap, huge choice of places to train, super friendly. And if you wanna clinch Thailand for sure. Holland has some badass places too I bet though.

Different type of training

Thailand is great if you plan on staying 6 months or longer. Or if you are already have skills and just want to sharpen up a bit

Holland will make you progress faster in a shorter amount of time. But its baptism by fire

I like the Dutch style better. So I guess I should just go there. I just need to figure out the most cost efficient way to do it.

I like both methods.

Thailand is great to work elbow, knee, clinch game, padwork etc.

Holland is great for combos & lots of sparring. I had fun training at Vos gym

Seems to me that there are plenty of places in Thailand that have classes in boxing and mma so if you want to learn it all I would try Thailand. Plus its cheaper.

never been to Thailand, Trained in holland a few times and FUCKING LOVE IT.

Total Baptism by fire, you won't get Ko'd but you will be dropped by leg kicks on a daily basis...But your thighs will be re-habilitated by the ammount of biking you will do when there.

 the first thing someone did to me training/sparring in the Netherlands was a 1-2, knee to the chest.  Baptism by fire sounds about right. The Dutch are very sober; train hard or forget it
