Welcome to the Phuket gym scene – Phuket King Muay Thai! This gem of a gym opened it’s doors in December last year and has started off going strong with its fun friendly atmosphere and group of knowledgeable trainers.
Phuket King Muay Thai: Philosophy and mindset
The gym is owned and run by Kru Pot who has a great following due to the fact he is an amazing trainer. He has previously been voted several times as one of the Top Ten Trainers in Phuket from various local Magazines. Kru Pot has had a decorated fight career fighting many of the top names in Muay Thai including Buakaw, Watcharatchai, Phet Namae, Nonthachai, Kong Pee Pop and has also trained and clinched with Saenchai.
His philosophy as a trainer is one which holds a lot of respect and value. Kru Pot believes that the ultimate goal is for the student to become better than their trainer. With this belief in mind nothing makes Kru Pot happier than seeing his students’ progress and perfecting the techniques he has taught them. He is also known as a bit of a clinching master so if this is one of the areas you wish to improve on as a fighter, there is no better trainer to learn from than this man.
