Hows it goin y'all?

I've come up with an idea which I can't decide whether I'll do or not?! I really want to spend a week in a Muay Thai Kickboxing Camp. Theres one called Horizons just off Koh Phangan thats very tempting!

I was just wondering if anyone has tried doing anything like this for a week out there, and if it is worth the pain?

Cheers for your time!

Regardless where you do it, go for it - you will love Muay Thai.

Whilst I can't comment directly on Horizons in Phangan, I can say that any reputable Muay Thai set-up will be an amazing adventure.

A weeks' training might be a bit too short though, you will catch the 'bug'!.

We're down in Rawai (South Phuket Island) at the moment and have spent some time at Rawai Muay Thai. Fabulous, although we have been here a month!

I'll ask the guys at training if they know of Horizons and get back to you with the low down.

Pam :)

P.S. Can you speak any Thai? This may depend on who is recommended as your trainer...

Hiya Pam!

Thanks for your reply! I think I am going to go ahead with the Muay Thai thing. I actually have just under 3 weeks in Thailand before i meet my girlfreind, so if I enjoy myself in the first week I should be able to stay on a little longer:)

The Horizon camp does look like a good set up, accomodation and breakfast available at good rates, they also have their own stadium. It says on their website that if the instructors feel your good enough, they can set you up with a real fight!! hahah scarey!

Unfortunately I speak no Thai at all:(

That would be awesome if you could give me a little insight into horizons, from outside of the camp.

Thanks matey!!!
