Phon's Gym Fighters & Yodsaenklai Fairtex

Friday, February 29, 2008

In 2007 Aaron Marshall, Coquessa Jones and Pamorn Martdee ventured to Fairtex in Pattaya whilst staying in Thailand; Invited by the World Famous ‘Beautiful Boxer’ Nong Toom a good friend of Pamorn; the trio were to spend a rare 2 days and night tasting what Fairtex training and luxury was all about.

Upon arrival to the bustling busy streets of Pattaya it was jaw dropping when the huge building came into view…An almighty resort with the label that is ever growing and rapidly making a name for itself throughout the world of sports today-Fairtex.

This place is probably one of the best places in the world if you want to indulge in 5 star luxury accommodation, tennis, basketball, fitness facilities, swimming pools and of course Muay Thai all in the one time! It is absolutely complete and houses some of the greatest fighters today including Steve Wakeling, Nareupol, Kaew, Nong Toom, Attachai and newest Contender Asia and WBC Muay Thai World Champion Yodsaenklai Fairtex.

Training was a nerve wracking experience; to start off with the three began their training,
Unfortunately all other stars had already finished for the day… Nong Toom watched over them carefully lending a helping hand here and there.

It was only until the next day that the three got to first meet Yodsaenklai and Co.

Having the opportunity to train alongside them in the ring and watch the ‘Computer Wizard’ and his golden left kick and left hook in action.

Pamorn took on both Nareupol and Attachai in grappling and learnt a few new tricks in doing so! All were very friendly and at the same time very amusing…Especially Yodsaenklai! -The funniest thing about him was that he had never ever seen himself on the internet (namely Youtube) in his whole lifetime; even though there were thousands of fan made highlights of him kicking ass!

Pamorn took him into the internet cafĂ© and typed in the search bar and played some videos away. Yod was absolutely awestruck and at the same time couldn’t believe his eyes at what he was seeing!

The time came to say goodbye and the experience of making new friends with the Fairtex trainers, Yodsaenklai, Attachai, Yodvisanu and Nareupol was all the part rewarding.
All had such a bright, charming and caring nature and taught the three some excellent new tricks of the trade that would sure come in handy…

Phon’s Thai Martial Arts would especially like to thank Nong Toom, Mr. Bunjong, Mr Anthony Lin and all at Fairtex for providing our trio with such a professional and pleasurable experience.
