Many people feel like they don’t have the time to learn martial arts, exercise, escape daily challenges, get time for themselves or work on much-needed self-improvement. Most people want to lose weight, get in shape fast, learn new self-defense skills or improve their overall health. While at the same time, enjoy the process. Have you always wanted to develop self-defense and martial arts skills, but never felt like a traditional dojo or your average Muay Thai / MMA camp is the right thing for you?

Joining a community of like-minded individuals who are ready for change is a great start but even that is usually missing the special ingredients needed to make this kind of change a reality. If you want to make a serious breakthrough in life and overcome your mental or physical barriers then you need a proven system and a leader who will not only help you achieve your goals but completely change how you view yourself and the world!​

That is why we have created a Private Group Martial Arts & Fitness Retreat. A Program that caters to professionals with real challenges, to give them a chance to escape the 9-5 environment and get away to a martial arts & fitness resort in Thailand in order to relax, and to actively train in a private group setting with the Master Instructor, while taking a holistic approach toward creating balance in mind, body and spirit. We believe in a working with a personalized approach for each individual while working together with the other participants to learn the techniques, tactics, mindset and body movement. This will enable you to progress the fastest and get the most value out of your time.​


Rick Tew’s Private Group Martial Arts & Fitness Retreat is a well-rounded program for women and men, where you can exercise daily habits into becoming a natural way of life. Learn Martial Arts, eat healthy, work out every day and develop personal skills to realize fulfillment and the power to execute upon your goals. This private group Mind, Body, and Spirit training program is created by Master Instructor Rick Tew. No matter who you are, where you come from, how old you are or what your skill level is, this program will leave you with an improved level of fitness, a healthier lifestyle and more self-confidence.

You should come to get away from it all and focus on you. Sounds selfish but in order to be the best you can be for others, you need to take time out for yourself and sharpen your sword. Our program offers a well-rounded opportunity for you to take control and focus on improving your mind, body, and spirit. We don’t hold your hand through the whole process, so you will be expected to develop or use self-discipline along the way. However, we do help and provide the environment for you to get some time to breathe new life back into your dreams.

You get to train, learn and communicate with the Master Instructor while getting private attention and focus. Mr. Tew has lived and taught all over the world and has a diverse background with many experiences that can help you manage yours.​
