Owner Mr Nipon Chotison has been involved in muay thai for decades (Coban Lookchaomaesaitong began his professional career under his care). He and son-in-law Namkabuan regularly work as referees and judges in Buriram provincial fights. They also own a number of rings which are rented out locally. There is plenty of opportunity for fighters of all levels to fight under their promotion. They are also well connected to fight promotions in Bangkok. This includes Lumpinee Stadium.
Accommodation is available in the Chotison family home and at the gym (males only). The Chotison residence is a few buildings away from Lookchaomaesaitong Sit Namkabuan Gym. Buriram has a number of hotels and modestly priced apartments available within close range of the gym.
