The Siam Health Culture Center (SHCC), founded in 2001 by Mr. Takai and located in Bangkok, is a specialist in Rusie Dutton Thai Yoga training. The center is primarily active in Thailand and Japan, but also in Laos, Vietnam, India, France, Germany and the UK.
Although the website is in Japanese and primarily focused on Japanese students it’s certainly worthwhile to learn a bit more about SHCC because they exclusively give Rusie Dutton (Reusi Dat Ton) training and are obviously dedicated to the art.
The training center offers Rusie Dutton basic, advanced, master, and super master training courses. Reusi Datton teacher training is integrated in the courses. As the courses in Thailand are mostly attended by Japanese students, you’ll find the majority of certified instructors (currently more than 300) teaching in Japan.
