WHY MALAYSIA? WHY KUALA LUMPUR?

The melting pot of cultures, amazing food and year-round sunshine beckons you to visit friends old and new. Kuala Lumpur is one of most affordable countries to visit, with many unique things to do. Boasting some of the World’s most gorgeous beaches and islands with World Class hotel and resorts, to the cooling climes of Cameron Highlands to the smorgasbord of tastes in Kuala Lumpur to Penang, there is something for everyone from Petaling Street Chinatown to the up market Pavilion Shopping Centre, that’s just a taste of what is available here. Malaysia was voted one of the top 5 retirement destinations in 2015 due to its low cost of living yet providing world class medical and infrastructure.

Kuala Lumpur is the Capital City of Malaysia with almost 1.6 million residents and another 5.5 million in the surrounding state of Selangor, there is as much daily activity as there are people.

TRAVEL, DATES & FLIGHT INFO

Vince, your host, will help anyone coming advise the perfect departure and return dates.

Travel Dates: We advise you leave for Malaysia in the second week of August (week of 8th August) to acclimatise and to get over any jet-lag especially if you are flying from West to East.

You will lose a day due to the time zone difference. Kuala Lumpur is in the same time zone as Perth, Australia, Singapore and Hong Kong. For many first timers flying out here, please get some melatonin tablets to help you ease over any jet-lag you may experience.

Kuala Lumpur International Airport (K.L.I.A.) is simple to navigate and provide the Sentral Express train (www.kliaekspres.com) to get to the city which is the quickest and one of the most inexpensive ways to get really close to the hotel and gym.

The Sentral Express Train provides on-board free WiFi alternatively you can get a budget or premier taxi at the arrival lobby or pre-arrange for an airport transfer by car if you prefer online (www.airportlimo.my) and also by airport transfer bus if you are travelling on a tight budget. All information is clearly provided at the airport or you can check at the information desk.

Departure: You can leave from KLIA or stay longer in Kuala Lumpur or other parts of the country (we will be happy to help you arrange longer stay). Suggested places to visit: Islands of Malaysia .

ACCOMMODATIONS, TRANSPORTATION & FOOD

There are many options to stay in Kuala Lumpur. The link I have provided for AirBnB will give you some $credit towards your future booking. Please use the search words “Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur” for your AirBnB destination. Personally, I prefer AirBnB especially those equipped with a washing machine! With sweaty gym clothes and shopping to be done, I want to have clean training gear daily and an empty suitcase for shopping so I don’t have to bring a lot of clothes. Also as local traffic conditions are unpredictable and can be severe, it is best to stay nearby to be on time for the training sessions along Jalan Maarof or in the vicinity of Bangsar.

Staying near the gym will also give you access (walking distance) to Bangsar LRT train into the city and sights. In AirBnB search for Bangsar or Bangsar Utama. Properties include: Nadi Bangsar, Gaya Bangsar, Bangsar Permai condo.

Please bear in mind that electricity in Malaysia is 220~240V and the wall socket/power plug is the 3 pin UK standard when you plan to bring your electronic devices for charging.
I believe the USA phones may not work here due to different network frequencies. It may be best to get a local SIM card at the airport on arrival or in the shopping mall (passport is required for the purchase for visitors).

Food options are plentiful from local, Western and vegetarian. Your only problem is finding the space to fit it all in. Malaysia is famous for its Nasi Lemak, Satay, curries and Chinese cuisines.

TOP TIP: Allow for a couple of days to acclimatise to the local humidity, heat and time difference. Being sufficiently rested will make a huge difference to your athletic performance especially if you’re here for trainer assessment. Stay hydrated at all times. Best to drink bottled water, isotonic drinks and fresh coconut water (widely available)

WHO CAN GO?

Anyone with a passport and an adventurers heart. Malaysia does not require any tourist visas and has no entry fees at immigration for citizens of USA, UK, Australia, EU nations and more. See what a nomad specialist says about visiting Kuala Lumpur. However, it is best to check here if unsure.

All LEVELS in all of the arts are welcome. We have hosted guests from as far the UK, USA, Canada, Spain, South Africa, Norway, Sweden, Germany, and closer from Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia, Thailand and Singapore and many people in between. Some are veterans with many years of training while others are just started with a few weeks of CMD classes. We know you will have a great time!

Those interested only in a specific area of the camp are also welcome, a FULL curriculum of classes will be available to all participants after they register and as the curriculum becomes available. Those training in one area can simply explore the city, hang out or train during other hours or classes.

Priority in booking will always be given to CMD students, however ALL Martial Artists from any city and gym are welcome!

EXPLORATION & FUN SCHEDULE

As locals we know our way around and are more than happy to point you in the right direction.

Much of your visit will be to enjoy the unique landscape that is Kuala Lumpur and it’s local attractions.

A large feature will revolve around local cuisine and shopping and much, much more.

While you are also free to do as you please, know that you are in a large city and while most people speak English it is best to check with any of our local team to let someone know where you plan to go for the day.

As with any large city, there are good spots and not so good spots to be in. If unsure, check first.

VENUE: CMD MALAYSIA

One of the first fully branded CMD Gyms in the World, CMD Malaysia is located in the suburb of Bangsar in Kuala Lumpur, a quick 15 minute drive from the city centre and arguably one of the nicest neighbourhoods in Kuala Lumpur offering everything under the sun. It is owned and operated by Vince Choo who with his team of CMD Trainers run classes from Mondays to Saturdays. ATC participants wishing to arrive early or stay later to get in a bit more training at a more relaxed pace during the ATC month are welcome to do so at members’ rates.

Gym Address: 9 Jalan Riong, Bangsar, 59100 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

We usually have CMD merchandise for sale and accept cash, Visa, MasterCard credit cards.

We do not have facilities to cater to American Express cards. Some travel debit cards also do not work probably due to security measures. Please contact your bank before you travel to allow for overseas usage.
