This program provides you with the perfect base to either learn the art of Muay Thai, or (if you already know the basics), to advance your skills in the country of the sport’s origins. Known as the “art of the eight limbs”, Thai Boxing teaches you to fight your opponent using 8 different points of contact on the body – feet, knees, elbows and hands. It is one of the most physical martial arts, but also one of the most exclusive.

You will experience authentic and traditional boxing classes, which demonstrate the basic principles and foundations of the exquisite art form of Muay Thai. The lead teacher of the school is also the provincial champion of the Singburi district and has a great deal of experience and knowledge.

This program requires you to be active, so it is your responsibility to ensure that you are physically fit enough to participate in a program of this nature. The classes take place twice a day in a small riverside hut. This program is very intensive and not for the faint of heart!

Aims & Objectives
  • Teach you the art of Muay Thai in the most authentic, traditional way
  • Increase your level of fitness while learning important self defence skills
Schedule
Monday to Friday

During this program, you will leave the center in the early morning (around 05:30 or 06:00).

After a 30 minute run for warm up, you will train for two hours led by our experienced Thai Boxing trainer. Thai boxers usually start very early in the day to benefit from the coolness of the morning. After your morning shift, you will head back to the eco-house to have breakfast and relax for a few hours. In the afternoon, you will return to the boxing school for another session!

This schedule can be changed and/or amended depending on weather conditions, local conditions and unforeseen circumstances.
