    I didn’t have any experience of Muay Thai before, and now I just spent an amazing month at Por Promin Muay Thai camp, training twice a day. Kin and Daeng are not only professional fighters but super talented teachers as well with whom you improve amazingly fast. They are very heartful people, making good jokes all the time but the same time they provide you a super hard workout, always focusing on the right technique and motivating you to push harder. These guys have lived their whole lives with Muay Thai and every day I got amazed by their skills as they always have something new to teach you. The location is simply great as you are nearby the mountains, a bit outside from the city centre but still having an easy access to the local markets, supermarkets, beaches, everything you ever need. Kin’s wife Miriam is one of the loveliest women on the earth, and she’s always willing to help you with everything and honestly is interested in how you are doing. With these people you feel immediately like home and don’t want to leave anymore. Like everybody else who was training at the camp at the same time with me, I am planning to go back to this awesome place as soon as possible! There are no words to describe the quality time I experienced during the last month, you need to go there and experience it! Thank you so much Miriam, Kin, and Daeng, your Muay Thai camp is super awesome. See you soon, when my sore muscles have recovered!

    This was my first attempt at Muay Thai. Having seen friends do it and love it I thought I would have a go. It was amazing training twice a day with Dueng. I loved every bit of it. I trained twice a day for 5 days. I was sore and bruised but it was worth it. I would highly recommend it and will go back there again when I'm in Hua Hin next.

    Thank you” just doesn’t seem to be enough to say regarding our two weeks of personal sessions in November 2014 with Kru Kin and Daeng at Por Promin Muay Thai Camp. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and learnt so much about Muay Thai.

    Kru Kin has an extensive knowledge and passion for Muay Thai. He was extremely patient and very technical in his teaching. He teaches people of all levels of experience from people who fight on big card promotional fights to novice hacks like us.

    Por Promin Muay Thai Camp also caters for all comfort levels. You can stay onsite or in our case, Miriam helped us organised transportation from our resort to the camp. Our Tuk Tuk driver was very reliable and accommodating to all our needs.

    Their Muay Thai Store was well stocked with a range of sizes and a variety of products at good prices so there is no need to bring any equipment.

    I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Kru Kin and Por Promin Muay Thai Camp to any person who wishes to training at a great camp lead by an excellent trainer full of passion, skill and the desire to succeed and to help you succeed what ever your goals maybe.

    I have now enjoyed Por Promin staff and camp twice and just cant wait to go back. Kin & Miriam supported me in creating my custom build stay, from villa booking, to chef at home, cleaning services to vehicle renting and of course all personal lessons I needed to improve my Muay Thai skills. I can only give my best of recommendation to this truly fantastic camp, crew and management.

    Por Promin Muay Thai

    I would recommend Porpromin to everyone, fighter or not. Spent 4 years solid here and wouldn't change it for the world! The training is unbelievable and so are the opportunities. It's located under mountains which is beautiful and makes running easy. Hands down Kru Kin is the best pad man about, for sparring and clinching he has so much to offer!

    Por Promin Muay Thai

    Muay Thai training is repetitive by nature. Routine, practice, and drills are all important for good habits to be established, and for the numerous techniques to be committed to memory. However, the occasional change from the normal training routine can be extremely stimulating and keep the mind interested.Just before Christmas, I had a change of locationspending a few days away from Bangkok in the beach resort town of Hua Hin in Prachuap Khiri Khan province. I also experienced a brief change in gym.Since early 2008, the only Muay Thai gym I have trained at in Thailand has been Eminent Air Boxing Gym in Bangkok. Of course, I love the training there, and after so many cumulative hours on the gyms premisesdespite a lengthy absence last year due to a cruciate ligament injuryI know the routines and the people extremely well. However, with much work to do to regain my former fitness and return to my pre-injury weight (as I am kindly reminded by the Thais on an almost daily basis!), I was loath to being too lazy during my holiday in Hua Hin.So, I saw my trip as an opportunity to try out another gym, gain some different training experiences, and hopefully learn something new. I opted for Por Promin Muay Thai after hearing several glowing reports from previous students including English fighter Darren OConnor.Por Promins head trainer and owner Kin Prayun Thawang has credentials that include more than 250 fights at venues including Lumpini and Rajadamnern, and overseas in England, Australia, and Korea, as well as 15 years experience teaching foreigners in Thailand, England, and Spain. Having fought as recently as 2010, he is still extremely fit, very fast, and has a wealth of knowledge and experience to share.I attended two morning sessions at Kins gym. On both days training started with a run around the village. The run was slightly more scenic than my usual route in Bangkokup and down a subsoi of Sukhumvit 101and the coastal air was undoubtedly cleaner than the city fumes I am used to inhaling.On return to the gym, after stretching and shadow-boxing, we kicked the bag for a few 4-minute rounds until being called individually into the ring for pad work with Kin or trainer Sek, an experienced Isaan fighter.At Eminent Air, once assigned a trainer, we tend to stick with them throughout. So I do admit to feeling strangely nervous when hitting pads with someone new. Once Id relaxed, pads with Kin was greatfun, varied, and very tiring. Kin has a huge repertoire of techniques and excellent command of English; soalthough I have a good understanding of Thaihe could also explain the intricacies of any particular move in my mother tongue.For example, one technique we practised involved me throwing a right body kick, which he caught and held, then me elbowing the pad with my right elbow before he released my kick. However, I wasnt turning my hip sufficiently for the elbow to strike with power. Open your bum! he exclaimed, whichas strange as it soundswas advice that really worked to improve my execution of the technique. After pad work I was invited to join in the clinching. I had not clinched for almost a year due to my knee injury and still had some fears of re-injury and further setback.But, not wanting to refuse in the new environment, I bit the bullet; clinching with Suzie Wylie (UK) and Toni Antilla (Finland)both preparing for fights on the Banchamek promotion in Surin on January 5thas well as Kin and Sek. Of course, nothing untoward happened, and I was pleased to have been encouraged to participate and to have finally overcome a mental barrier that had affected me for so long.As in most gyms, the final stage of training at Por Promin was assigned for conditioning exercises and stretching, with free weights available for anyone to use.On my second day at the gym I was also able to experience a couple of rounds on the pads with Sek after training with Kin, which were also highly enjoyable despite my shocking lack of fitness by that stage! Although I did not manage to attend an afternoon session, I was told the routine is similar to that of the mornings, and also includes sparring and extra kicks/knees on the bag for fighters.I would highly recommend Por Promin gym to anyone interested in training in the Hua Hin area. Hua Hin can be reached from Bangkok in just over 2 hours and is a pleasant coastal town with several attractions including the beach.Por Promin offers a clean and friendly training environment. Kin clearly has genuine love for teaching Muay Thai and he and his trainers provide every student with individual attention and guidance. Kins wife Miriam is also integral to the efficient running of the gym, and her being English makes for ease of communication with international students for directions or enquiries.I gained a lot from my two sessions at Por Promin. I gained the confidence to clinch again (which was significant for me), learned a few new techniques, met some great people, and returned to Bangkok with revived enthusiasm for training. While I do think loyalty to one gym is important, change and experience of another gyms training can also be extremely positive, as I found during my holiday.
