Overlooking the crystal waters of Haad Tien Bay, Horizon Muay Thai Boxing Camp offers a unique learning environment. Under qualified instruction you can train alongside Muay Thai students from around the world.
The air is clean and the atmosphere welcoming at Horizon Thai Boxing Camp on the east coast of the tropical island of Koh Phangan, in Thailand's south seas. All levels and all ages are welcome. We hold two daily Muay Thai training sessions (every day except Saturdays).
The first begins at 8am and ends at 10am. The second, generally more intensive session runs from 4pm to 6pm. We are open year round and you can sign up for Muay Thai courses as long or as short as you wish. You may want to learn Muay Thai boxing for fitness, self defense, self improvement or to prepare for a Muay Thai fight back home. In any case we focus on teaching, practicing and improving the proper Muay Thai techniques. If it is your aim we can arrange for you to compete in a local stadium Muay Thai bout or even help you take your competition to a higher level within Thailand.
Focus on your fitness
Many of the people we have training with us at Horizon Muay Thai Camp are trying Muay thai boxing for the first time and we see plenty of female practitioners. It is not really a problem if you are not very fit; your fitness will quickly improve.
Each student's Muay Thai training regime is tailored to suit their individual needs. Rest assured that all of our carefully selected Muay Thai instructors are lifelong devotees of Muay Thai boxing. Their enthusiasm for their national sport is tangible, and they are dedicated to making both your Muay Thai training effective and your time with us at Horizon Thai Boxing Camp memorable. Our Muay Thai gym at Horizon Thai Boxing Camp is equipped with everything you need to learn and train in Muay Thai kickboxing and we have a full-size Muay Thai boxing stadium for you to practice in. We use only good quality Muay Thai equipment and your safety is a priority.
Activities outside the camp
In case you have any energy left between training sessions or have a friend or partner not interested in learning Muay Thai, we can organise courses teaching traditional Thai massage and authentic Thai cooking. Or if you don't want to do anything at all Haad Tien is a great place for a soak up the sun style beach holiday.
Staying at the camp
Accommodation at Horizon Thai Boxing Camp is in simple detached bungalows with balconies and superb sea views. We have a range of accommodation from singles to triples, with or without attached bathrooms. Ours is a beautiful restaurant serving quality Western and Thai food. Our menu is extensive, covering breakfast, lunches and dinners, and Thai food cooked Thai style. We have a small shop stocking basic provisions such as tissue, soap, shampoo and mosquito repellent. Laundry service is available. One night a week why not stay in for video night, and watch the great Muay Thai boxers in action?
Explore the island
On days off from Muay Thai training we organise day trips around the island during which you can visit some more of the islands outstanding beaches, see the local temples and Koh Phangan's biggest tree!
Wind up at the main ferry port, Thongsala, for a Muay Thai match at a local Muay Thai fight night where you can cheer on Horizon's fighters if they are competing. Or how about a round island boat trip. Visit more stunning beaches, go snorkelling or fishing, and visit freshwater falls at a favourite bathing spot of Thailand's kings.
At home in our natural paradise
Horizon Muay Thai Boxing camp, built almost entirely from natural materials, is within easy walking distance of three palm-fringed beaches. In fact, you can jump directly into the sea from rocks below our restaurant. There is no road (access to our beach is by boat or by foot) so we are secluded from the, sometimes, intrusive nightlife that Thailand is so famous for. But Horizon Thai Boxing Camp is by no means isolated. Nearby there are other bars, restaurants and accommodations as well as a spa and yoga centre. In the nearby small town of Haad Rin (a 10-minute boat ride away) you can find all necessary amenities: banks, a hospital, telephones, internet, well-stocked pharmacy, general stores, dive shops and all the shopping and night clubs that you might wish for. Where could be better to learn the techniques and traditions of this ancient form of close-quarter combat, Muay Thai boxing, than its birthplace – THAILAND?
