Honour Muay Thai is one of the newest gyms in the Pattaya region. There seems to be a good mix of Thai’s and Westerners, so you should have access to quality training partners here.
As for the trainers, they all seem to be very experienced, and two of them are former champions. Kru “Bem” is a former channel 7 stadium champion and Kru “Nuey” was a champion at Omnoi stadium.
These two former champions, who are retired, are accompanied by 3 other trainers (“Super Boy”, “Yod” and “Pepsi”) who are still actively competing on the fight circuit. Each of them have between 150-300 fights – so no shortage of experience here.
The gym is located at Thepprasit stadium (you need to walk through the stadium to get to the gym). Click here to for the exact address and a map.
The gym is on the baht bus route so if you don’t have a motorbike, it’s easy to just flag one down and get to where you need to go (anywhere within the city) for between 10-20 baht.
The gym offers accommodation, that can be purchased as part of their training packages. Alternatively, students can stay nearby and commute to the gym as there are plenty of nearby hotels, apartments and guesthouses nearby.
If you choose to stay at the gym, there’s a chance that the room may be shared if it’s busy, so keep that in mind.

Once back at the gym, you’ll do your pad-work (typically 4-5 rounds per session), clinching sparring and conditioning exercises.
What’s unique about the training structure here is that clinching is done twice during the afternoon sessions Once immediately following the jog (for 15-20 minutes) and again after pad work and bag work (for another 15-20 minutes).
