This went on and KRS gyms activities were doing pretty good in the boxing business in Thailand until it was affected by the financial crisis of Thailand in 1997. K.R.S. gyms activities were eventually decreased but still operated for the sake of maintaining the art of Thai boxing.

Years past and in the 2003, Mr. Kozuke Sasaki, a former Japanese boxer and Thai boxing champion of Japan visited the camp because of his interest in the art of Thai boxing. During the same time Robert Cox, an English man who is highly educated in Thai boxing also joined the camp and together they re-established the gym.

During this time, boxers from abroad kept on joining the camp with some of these fighters ended up becoming world champions of Muay Thai. Some of them were Rudolf Dureka of Slovakia, Kenko Yamakami and Mazamise Hirashima of Japan, and Ole Larsen of Denmark.

Ole Larsen went on to marry a Thai woman and established his own camp called the Legacy Gym in Ubon. Cox on the other hand opened his new camp called Kaewsamrit gym in Bangkok, and Sasaki went back to Japan and opened his own Thai boxing camp called Hiroshima. Though they have left and had their own gyms, they still continue to be associated with the K.R.S Gym.

    "KRS Gym is a Muay Thai boxing camp located in the traditional Thai city of Ubon Ratchathani satellite. The camp has a stable of young fighters involved in Muay Thai fights locally in Issan, in Bangkok is famous Lumpini Stadium and abroad in countries as diverse as Hong Kong , England and Australia. The camp is owned and operated Mr. Sattawat Khaisang who is an avid boxing Muay Thai.Location and atmosphere...The facility is located on KRS Gym Suspassitt Road, a busy road junction which will cross the main street of the district of Ubon Ratchathani Metropolitan. Ubon Ratchathani is situated in the northeastern Thailand, a region known as Issan.Apart from its major cities is mostly Issan a rural agricultural area, but residents have a deep passion for Muay Thai, which has its historical roots in this initial set of countries. Muay Korat has a particular style of Muay Thai practiced initially in Issan. The emphasis in Muay Korat has been on the force, with the strike of Buffalo, say so powerful that it could take establishing a Buffalo with a single keystroke. Suspassitt Road is a bustling city, with vehicles of all kinds in the running for a leader in traffic. Moist tropical air is filled with the smells of Issan dishes which are available at local roadside eateries. To get to the real training camp you have to cut a narrow path that has just enough room for one vehicle at a time. You are immediately confronted with sounds that resemble a leopard suddenly being strangled by a python. Arrive KRS Gym can be an intimidating welcoming.Installation is a true authentic style Muay Thai to the outside with a shed roof covering large. Drinking water, showers and toilets are all available. The priority of the gym is to facilitate the formation of the real warriors of modern times, people are able to defeat his opponents and the goals, no matter how difficult or uncomfortable situation may be, therefore the aesthetics has been removed from the list of requirements for a training facility.Fighters from all over the world to KRS Gym. Leonard Nganga is an impressive fighter of Kenya. Nganga send home all its gains struggles to feed his family in Africa. John in Norway is an experience of Muay Thai, a great heavyweight who fought on the K-1 promotion in Europe, the Thai management and trainers call John. Mark Long is England, a British Royal Marines who had known the situation of life or death combat in Iraq and Afghanistan. Mark is a talented sportsman and learns the intricacies of Muay Thai. There are also fighters from Japan and China in training camp.Using a boxing ring well structured series of heavy bags, mirrors, sit up benches, light weight dumbbell and field of public training, Muay Thai fighters go through a high volume, traditional Muay Thai program day and night.Learning styles, traditions, techniques and structure...The styles of training taking place in most camps Muay Thai is a little different from modern Western practices. This figure is clearly the case in a traditional Muay Thai camp as KRS Gym. Members the gym will train for approximately three oclock in the morning and 3 pm; To 6 to 7 days per week. A quick calculation shows that this is an approximate total of 39 training hours for the week, a possible translation of at least 35 training sessions in modern Western society.Each morning session begins with a 10-kilometer, and every afternoon a 5km race. All the basic components of KRS Gym sessions take place at the same time and the test structure. After performing their fighters go through their own preparations hand packing, stretching and shadow boxing. Fighters, then put on a bag and run through the constant repetition of the strike ended different levels of intensity for different cycle lengths from four to 10 minutes. Meanwhile, the camp experienced trainers will choose to work with both fighters on the pads strike, through the repetition of the same technique with the trainers and boxers to fit an impossible perfection. The series on the pads with the trainers lasting 5 minutes with 1 minute rest. The last minute of each round will consist of 5 minutes 45 seconds at a slower pace then the last 15 seconds nonstop rapid removal. At each turn, if a boxer is on the bag or pads, ending with 20 pushups fast pace.Throughout the training the emphasis is on rhythm. The athletes will have a constant standing squatting on that swing back and forth slightly. This is based on tradition, however, appears to provide an effective method to achieve physical balance. Unlike Western boxing in the Queensberry rules, there is no man-to-man sparring reflects the conditions of combat. Alternatively, the fighters will work periods while sparring light runners with trainers, with the trainer and opening the fight against the strikes of various intensities, a heavy emphasis on technique. Fighters will also complete non-strikers stand and shade facing up sparring with boxers colleagues.Each session will end inside the boxing ring, with the group of fighters through drills listed in the instruction of the great teachers. These exercises vary, from the rear and shade etc. Loved knees in the shadow sparring as mentioned. KRS Gym trainer Sitsianpo Ramba has a facial expression that is unwelcoming, if not deadly, but it is positive, courteous and highly professional. Like all trainers to KRS Gym, skills in teaching, despite a language barrier, are very impressive.There are some training methods that take place. Late return sessions fighters take turns to perform an exercise to strengthen neck wearing a motorcycle helmet with an old concrete gravity that are connected with a rope. The routine involves side and back and forth of the head. Clearly a method to achieve fitness for efficient absorption of strikes to the head of the opponent. Fighters also use an old truck tire bouncing around to fill shadow boxing on the base unstable. Quite often, but not at each session, the contestants complete a year of extreme conditioning. While holding the bag boxers are full lap without stopping on his side and heavy rough, bouncing from one foot to another. Round of this exercise can last up to five minutes in duration. Originally published difficult, but not extreme, the application has attempted this exercise is eye opening from a conditioning standpoint. I was told that the key to its intensity of conditioning is rebounding from the end toes of one foot to another, rather than leave a slight pause effectively a foot flat position.An important theme in all the local Thai training sessions is the emphasis on lower body strikes with kicks and knees to elbows and even punching. Foreign fighters, whether beginners or professionals, have an output volume of more apparent perforation and elbow striking.Notes specific training;- All courses are out extreme high volume- Intensity levels vary from one situation to- Focus on conditioning the lower body through the long, slow distance running- Strength training and conditioning is not applicable- The floor is concrete covered with carpet worn, soles of the feet are well-conditioned- No apparent flexibility training. It seems to become more flexible athletes through the continuing transformation of movements necessary - Fighters display proportionately large amounts of lower body muscle mass on upper body- Lectures on the beaches with trainers for a period of 5 minutes with 1-minute rest. The last minute of each round will consist of 5 minutes 45 seconds at a slower pace then the last 15 seconds nonstop rapid removal- Boxing Ring is extremely padded. Moving around feels like walking on quicksand - When not working with the coach it is the responsibility of combatants accountable for the quality and intensity of training an attractive method to instill internal discipline and the desire Gym and management of athletesManagement and gymnastics athlete plays a key role in the effectiveness and efficiency in which the Muay Thai training program is implemented. The gym manager has recruited a world-class trainers, established a traditional and easy to set up a disciplinary system. The gym manager is in attendance for all training sessions. Many gyms are young fighters who were orphans taken under the wing of the gym, given a goal and an opportunity.Therefore, the desire in which the fighters train with the results is unique. Born into a middle west of physical training, but with experience in boxing West, I was amazed at the volume of training was completed at KRS Gym. It was obvious early on that the fighters had an unwavering desire to succeed and were willing to do whatever it takes to get results. However, at the same time these warriors were relaxed and happy in themselves as individuals. There was no arrogance or inflated egos, just real and personal self-confidence accomplishment. The fighters displayed great confidence in their training, knowing well that for the methods of the art and packaging that have been taken through had been transmitted from generation to generation.After personal experience of Muay Thai Gym in KRS completing training sessions, and attending training that takes place, my first results is that the ability of any athletics necessary be an effective way to fight Muay Thai is great. Given the volume of training with varying intensities, from extreme to quite a rhythmic constant flow weight loss is really just an inevitable side effect. Sports variables that are tested, trained and implemented cross functionally with all areas of physical activity outside of combat sport training. I was fascinated by the ability of instructors to teach leadership and superb conditioning work despite a language barrier. To me, he showed how a body language played important and demonstration in teaching and training. Training Muay Thai Gym in KRS is the ultimate warrior and preparation of fitness based on the results of training."
