Kru Chok has over 30 years experience collectively as a fighter and trainer. He first started training Muaythai at the ripe old age of 8 years old. He went trained for his very first fight with only his brother, a pair of broken pads and a rice bag hanging from a tree, in the backyard of his home in Cha-uat Province, Nakhon Si Thammarat, South Thailand. He then went on to grace the stages at the most prestigious stadiums in Thailand. With a lot of hard work in between of course.
His fighting style is the classical and popular Muay Femur style. Preferring to use defence and counter techniques, as well as, fight IQ to outsmart his opponents. He enjoyed fighting against Muay Khao (knee fighters) and Muay Dern (forward walking fighters), as he felt this style was easy for him to win against. He hated fighting against other Muay Femurs, because in his words, “very headache”, working out how to outsmart them and score. His favourite weapons are teeps and sweeps.
He first started his journey as a Muaythai trainer in Phuket, where he eventually made it into the top 10 best trainers in all of Phuket Province. He has worked as Head Trainer at some well known and reputable gyms in Phuket, before moving to Koh Phangan Island. He has also worked abroad in Australia.
He is suited to all levels of experience. He possesses a very unique style of holding pads. First and foremost, he will make sure that you have solid fundamentals, with a heavy focus on defence, before teaching you his tricky Muay Femur ways. You are guaranteed to level up under his guidance and your defence will be impossible to penetrate. Kru Chok has a mean clinch, teep and sweep game, with a beautiful kick to top it off.
He is a rare gem of a teacher with the English skills to tell you his story. You should really hear it for yourself one day!
