Muay Thai

Muay Thai is a form of hard martial art practiced in large parts of the world, including Thailand and other Southeast Asian countries. The art is similar to others in Southeast Asia such as: Pradal Serey in Cambodia, Lethwei in Myanmar, Tomoi in Malaysia, and Lao boxing in Laos. Muay Thai has a long history in Thailand and is the countrys national sport. Traditional Muay Thai practiced today varies significantly from the ancient art Muay Boran and uses kicks and punches in a ring with gloves similar to those used in Western boxing. Muay Thai is referred to as the art of the eight limbs, as the hands, shins, elbows, and knees are all used extensively in this art. A practitioner of Muay Thai (nak muay) thus has the ability to execute strikes using eight points of contact, as opposed to two points (fists) in Western boxing and four points (fists, feet) used in the primarily sport-oriented forms of martial arts.In its original form, Muay Thai consisted of an arsenal of nine weapons the head, fists, elbows, knees and feet known collectively as na-wa arwud. However in modern Muay Thai, both amateur and professional, head-butting an opponent is no longer allowed.

To strike and bind the opponent for both offensive and defensive purposes, small amounts of stand-up grappling are used: the clinch. Formal Muay Thai techniques are divided into two groups: Mae Mai or major techniques and Luk Mai or minor techniques. Muay Thai is often a fighting art of attrition, where opponents exchange blows with one another. This is certainly the case with traditional stylists in Thailand, but is a less popular form of fighting in the contemporary world fighting circuit. With the success of Muay Thai in mixed martial arts fighting, it has become the de facto martial art of choice for competitive stand-up fighters. As a result, it has evolved and incorporated much more powerful hand striking techniques used in western style boxing and the Thai style of exchanging blow for blow is no longer favorable. Note: when Muay Thai fighters compete against fighters of other styles (and if the rules permit it), they almost invariably emphasize elbow (sok) and knee (kao) techniques to gain a distinct advantage in fighting. Almost all techniques in Muay Thai use the entire body movement, rotating the hip with each kick, punch, and block. The rotation of the hips in Muay Thai techniques, and intensive focus on core muscles (such as abdominal muscles and surrounding muscles) is very distinctive and is what sets Muay Thai apart from other styles of martial arts.

The punch techniques in Muay Thai were originally quite simple being crosses and a long (or lazy) circular strike made with a straight (but not locked) arm and landing with the heel of the palm. Cross-fertilization with Western boxing and western martial arts mean the full range of western boxing punches are now used: jab, straight right/cross, hook, uppercut, shovel and corkscrew punches and overhands as well as hammer fists and back fists. As a tactic, body punching is used less in Muay Thai than most other striking martial arts to avoid exposing the attackers head to counter strikes from knees or elbows. To utilize the range of targeting points, in keeping with the Theory of Muay Thai Centre Line, the advocate can use either Western or Thai stance which allows for either long range or short range attacks to be undertaken effectively without compromising guard.

Driving directions from Bangkok

Get on the expressway in the direction of Dao Khanong and cross Rama IX bridge. After crossing the bridge, follow the signs to Samut Sakhon. You will drive approx. 100 km in a straight line south, passing Samut Sakhon and Samut Songkhram, and finally reach a fork in the road. Head right to Ratchaburi, and then left to Phetchaburi. Stay left and continue on to Phetchaburi.

When you reach Phetchaburi there will be another fork. Head left into Phetchaburi town, and then right to Prachuap Khiri Khan.

Take the right-hand road. After approx. another 30-40km, just before entering Cha-am, youll come to yet another fork. If you want to avoid the traffic and red lights in Cha-am and Hua Hin, continue on the right-hand side (the sign says Prachuap Khiri Khan). This is where the Cha-am-Pranburi bypass road begins. Note that Both routes are almost exactly equal in distance but the bypass is faster.

Heres how to get to the gym from this point on, depending on which option you decide to choose:

Via Cha-am - Pranburi Bypass Road

Once you turn onto the bypass road, you will drive straight ahead for approx. 50km. The bypass road then merges back to the main Phetchakasem Road and continues on into Pranburi (youll see a Makro Cash and Carry on the right just before the road merges). After you merge back onto the main Phetchakasem Road, continue on straight ahead. Drive through the first traffic light in front of Thanarat Military Camp, continue on past the Esso, Shell and Caltex petrol stations on the left, and then turn left at the second traffic light (a Tesco Lotus Superstore is on the corner).

After turning left at the light, follow that road to the end for approx. 3.7km - you will go over a railroad crossing, pass Pranburi Hospital and after going over a small bridge will end up at a T-junction. Turn right at the junction, and then immediately left at the little police station. From the police station, drive 16.5 km straight ahead towards the entrance to the park. After 15.5 km youll see the 301 Muay Thai & MMA sign on the left.

Via Cha-am - Hua Hin Town (Phetchakasem Road)

Follow Phetchakasem Road straight ahead through Cha-am and then straight on through Hua Hin towards Pranburi/Prachuap Khiri Khan. Approx. 20 km after Hua Hin youll come to an intersection where the by-pass road meets the road you are on. Continue going straight past this intersection. Drive through the first traffic light in front of Thanarat Army Camp, continue on past the Esso, Shell and Caltex petrol stations on the left, and then turn left at the second traffic light (a Tesco Lotus Superstore is on the corner).

After turning left at the light, follow that road to the end for approx. 3.7km you will go over a railroad crossing, pass Pranburi Hospital and after going over a small bridge will end up at a T-junction. Turn right at the junction, and then immediately left at the little police station. From the police station, drive 15.5 km straight ahead towards the entrance to the park. After 15.5 km youll see a sign 301 Muay Thai. Turn left down the road.

Driving from the South

Drive into Pranburi and turn right at the first set of traffic lights in the center of town. Drive straight ahead for 4.7 km till you see a little police station on the right. Turn right at that corner. From the police station, drive 15.5 km straight ahead towards the entrance to the park. After 15.5 km youll see a sign 301 Muay Thai. Turn left down the road.

Public Vans from Bangkok

In Bangkok, go to Anusaovaree (Victory Monument) under the highway; you will see many vans going to the south. Go to the ANUMAN booth which is located right in front of the kiosk with the Coca cola banner next to the highway exit.

Anuman Booth sends vans to Pranburi 7/7 each hour from 5 am to 8pm. Ask the clerk or driver to go to 301 gym in Sam Roi Yot ( krai muay sam roi yot). The total cost to go up to the gym is 300 THB only. In case of questions do not hesitate to contact 301 gym.

For information about the booking conditions, please send 301 Muaythai and MMA Gym an inquiry.

    "It's only been a couple of days since leaving 301 Muay Thai and my body is already missing it. At this time at the camp, I would have already completed a run along the beach, watching the sun rise as some fishermen prepare their boats for sea and others begin selling the mornings catch. Chances are I would have had to fight off attacks from a few packs of dogs, throwing sand in their eyes I discovered was better than running with a stick. I would have also passed grazing cattle on the side of the road lined by coconut groves wondering if today will be the day they charge at me. By 8 a.m., the time I woke today, I would have been feeling exhausted, yet at the same time pumped and ready to get every last breath of wind taken out of me as Oliver puts me through three grueling rounds of pads. Upon reflection, 301 Muay Thai was a wonderful place, and I'm so glad I came here over the other, larger gyms in Thailand. There is a true family atmosphere at the camp. The trainees would all buy fruit to mix into a fruit salad and share over the next episode of Spartacus in the evenings, share sachets of hot chocolate or happily sit around the kitchen during the day sharing stories and having a laugh. Unlike larger camps, everyone knows each other by name and helps each other out. A lot of the things I once complained about are, after talking to people who have traveled to many camps, common practice in Thailand. Concrete weight sets are apparently at many of the gyms, whilst at 301 there are at least plans for a full weight set in the future. The same goes for the food. Everyone at 301 complained to some extent about the food being too oily/fatty etc. for the training we were doing, yet at least there was always enough. Something that from what I've gathered cannot be said for all camps. Even the fact that there was no Internet at the gym turned into something I truly appreciated. Without in-house Internet, I was forced to walk or ride along the beach 5 kilometers to the nearest resort with a good connection. In the process, I built a relationship with a fruit lady who would often hand me bags of mangoes for free. The walk also gave me a chance to get to know and appreciate the beauty of the area on a more personal level, something I'm thankful for. Would I come back, or recommend the gym to others? Definitely. The location is superb for anyone wanting to escape the temptations of the Phuket, Pattaya or Bangkok party scenes and get into rural Thailand. However, whilst being rural, Bangkok is still a viable weekend trip and there is an incredibly comfortable bus that will take you to the nearby town of Hua Hin to shop, feast on the Sizzler salad bar or simply just get away from the gym for a few hours. The manager, Oliver, knows just how hard to push you, and if he thinks you are going to do yourself harm he will tell you to stop a rare and valuable trait. The Thai trainer Joe is equally wise and has been training in Muay Thai since he was 6 years old. He is enthusiastic, fun and eager to learn English, making for a perfect trainer. I wasn't interested in the MMA part of the training, however by all accounts Yohun is also a great teacher. Finally, the gym is still only a year old and there are many more things to come. Fridges in each room are planned as well as the aforementioned weight set. However, a sauna is next on the project list, which will compliment the ice baths perfectly after a hard day of training. "

  • Review by MMAfreak21 from Canada

    "The best gym I ever trained at is 301 Muay Thai, Beautiful place, no distractions, successful trainers, good experiences. The reason this is the best place to train is because of everything I said above, having no distractions and having a beautiful place around you. Wouldn't it be nice to train with trainers that have all day to work with you instead of 1 hour time limits? That is always annoying. The experience you will get out of this as well is something you will never forget, you will learn how to toughen up your body for strikes thrown at you, then be able to relax like you never have before.When fighters get back from 301 Muay Thai, back to their home country, they will go from being one of the average/bad strikers in there gym, to the best, and this is only weeks or months work fighters are doing this (I learned by getting my ass kicked by someone I used to beat in the gym all the time, its the other way around now) This is considered through the people I know the best place they have ever trained to work on Muay Thai. I highly recommend it as I just finished my first day here, and I learned more in a day than I have ever learned back in Canada "
