Although the gym has seen many name changes over time, it still remains true to its vision of providing a professional atmosphere as well as an established training regime to any and all levels of fighters. You will be trained by local Thai champion fighters in an open-air gym. The gym overlooks a pristine lake surrounded by a forested coastline.

As you progress further in the art of Muay Thai boxing, you will learn to use the strikes against Thai Pads. The Trainer wears a set of Thai pads, a stomach pad and shin guards which allows you to attack him as if he were an opponent. Full power striking of the Thai Pads is a tough part of Muay Thai training and an amazing workout. Pad work will develop your footwork, co-ordination and spatial awareness. Pad work is a very distinctive part of Muay Thai training.
After demonstrating proficiency during Thai pads training, stand up grappling techniques practiced with a partner provides the final bridge to sparring and fighting. During this part of Muay Thai training you learn to control your opponent by trying to lock his arms or neck in a clinch. From this position it is possible to deliver the knees, or drop your opponent to the floor. This is also a very tough aspect of Muay Thai training. These drills are done at the end of each Muay Thai training session prior to the final shadow boxing warm down. Working with a partner you can apply the Muay Thai techniques you have learned in a realistic situation.
Once you have a comprehensive foundation in place you will be ready to participate in controlled sparring. At Horizon Thai Boxing Camp we have full protective gear available for use during Muay Thai training.
Muay Thai or Thai kickboxing is the national sport and cultural marital art of Thailand. It was developed several hundreds of years ago as a form of close combat that utilizes the entire body as a weapon.
Muay Thai is referred to as the art of eight limbs; and using eight points of contact the body mimics weapons of war. The Hands become the sword and dagger; the shins and forearms act as armor and the elbow is used to fell an opponent as if it were a heavy hammer; the legs and knees become the axe and staff. The body operates as one unit. The knees and elbows are used to constantly search and test for an opening while grappling and trying to spin an enemy to the ground.
Por Pramuk Gym is situated in Chachoengsao, Thailand. Chachoengsao is the capital city of the Chachoangsao province, a province neighboring the Thai capital of Bangkok. It is a small city located in the eastern part of the province.The city is easily reached considering its close proximity to Bangkok by either car, bus or train.
That being said, traveling within the city is also an easy task. With only 2 main roads in the city you wont find very many buses running. There are two popular modes of public transportation in Chachoangsao, either the tuk-tuk or the songthaew (a covered pick-up truck).
The city's life is centered on its main market area where almost all traffic runs through. The market is open everyday and supplies the city with raw and cooked food, and basic needs. In the city, you will also be able to find several western fast-food restaurants and several popular shopping centers among other traditional and cultural attractions.
