This package includes 7 nights accommodation at a local hotel called Ban Ton Mai Apartments. They are air-con, basic but clean and comfortable apartments with either one double bed or two single beds. Facilities include en-suite shower and toilet, TV, free WIFI, Air-Con, and there is an on-site coffee shop and cafe.

All classes begin with a run to warm up, or 10 - 20 minutes skipping in the gym. Following that there is stretching, shadow boxing, bag work, up to five rounds on the pads with a trainer and then sparring and/or clinching followed by sit ups, push-ups, bar pull-ups and weights and sprints.

The most important thing to remember is you need to take it all at your own pace, everyone has their own goals. Por Promin has professional fighters as well as complete beginners training at the same time and obviously they cannot follow the same schedule. So the trainers adapt the training to suit your needs.

  • 16:00 - 19:00 Afternoon sessions

Muay Thai

Muay Thai, (Thai: ), translated into English as Thai Boxing, is the national sport of Thailand and is a martial art with origins in the ancient battlefield tactics of the Siamese (or Thai) army. It evolved from Krabi-Krabong, literally sword and baton, the hand-to-hand tactics of the Thai army. The early Muay Thai bouts pitted different companies within the Siamese army against each other with few rules and no weight divisions or time limits. They became quite popular and eventually were shown in stadia across the country. In the early 20th century, time limits, boxing gloves as well as a uniform set of rules were introduced. During the latter half of the 20th century Muay Thai was exported to many countries and is now practiced by hundreds of thousands of people all over the world.

Muay Thai is known as "King of the Ring" in kickboxing circles. These fights feature punches, kicks, elbows, knees, standing grappling and head-butts to wear down and knock out their opponent. Thai training methods develop devastating power, speed and superb cardio-vascular endurance as well as fighting spirit. Muay Thai training as also quite safe thanks to sophisticated pad training that evolved to keep fighters healthy between fights. Muay Thai has also proven very effective outside the ring and has been embraced enthusiastically by practitioners of a variety of self-defense, sporting, military and law enforcement activities.

Muay Thai suits those who wish to lose weight, increase their stamina, improve muscle tone, and increase strength and flexibility. Other benefits include increased cardiovascular endurance and an improvement in hand-to-eye co-ordination.

It is only natural that with such hard workouts such as those associated with Muay Thai, the physical fitness of a person greatly improves. The physique becomes well-proportioned and the person gets into a great body shape. Muay Thai burns the fat quickly making a person lean and thin which is a great achievement in itself. It has been seen that those practicing Muay Thai have seen a better, glowing complexion as it releases all the toxins and waste from the body.

Muay Thai, as it teaches you methods of self defense, toughens you from the inside. It helps in boosting the immune system of the body, providing strength and endurance to muscles. All this works on the mental psyche of a person as he gains self-confidence, and learns how to be disciplined. At a spiritual level, it surprisingly provides mental peace and relief from stress. Muay Thai also makes a person more self -assured and self-aware.

For generations, people have learnt this martial art not only for self defence, but also for physical and moral well-being. It is a good martial art technique that induces fear in the minds of others which is why scores of children and women are learning this invaluable Thai combat sport. Proponents say that they have greatly benefited from Muay Thai as it has taught them virtues such as compassion, patience, endurance, gratitude and honesty.

For those who are obese, Muay Thai is nothing short of a boon as it makes a person lose fat in the shortest possible time. As such, to get back into shape and have a glamorous body, Muay Thai is a great workout. Those having low self-esteem have also benefited from this Thai martial art form as it instilled confidence in them and they learnt how to value themselves more. For those who have a weak immune system, Muay Thai works to build up stamina and endurance and they face lesser diseases after indulging in this great martial art form. Muay Thai makes a person courageous and fearless but at the same time honest and compassionate.

    "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."

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 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!"

    "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."
