This program is designed for those who have little experience or training in boxing or kick-boxing and would like to know the basics of Muay Thai. Level 1 is suitable for boys and girls age 16+ and men and women of all ages providing they are suitable for physical activity. The level of exercise is individually tailored according to one’s ability, endurance and performance. Prior to the beginning of the program, an individual session with the Head Trainer or Thai Master will assess your status to customise your training.

This program features 2 training sessions per day – one in the morning and one in the afternoon, each of the duration of 2 hours. Between the AM and the PM sessions athletes are expected to eat lunch and rest, hence if you are travelling with friends or family, we suggest not to make social plans in the afternoon as you will not recover in time and feel too tired to learn proficiently in the second session. Of course, if you want to spend some family time during the break you can all relax by the pool at the Resort or at the near-by beach. Evenings are free.
