Greetings and welcome to Harnessing Muay Boran. My name is Vak but as a teacher at the studio I am known as “Kru” Vak which means “teacher” in Thailand. Along with being the head instructor and owner of the facility, I am also a licensed Massage Therapist. With 15+ years of experience in the field of martial arts, I have dedicated my life to teaching students. Since I am from Thailand a lot of my teaching methods are not watered down or lost in translation in the training. At HMB we have an entrance interview process for new student. We hand select our students. Only students that passed the interview will be allowed to train at our facility.
Our studio takes pride in sticking with traditional Muay Thai training and techniques. As practiced in Asia, we do not use belts to distinguish rank. Instead we use the lifecycle of a frog to chart a student’s journey from the egg stage all the way to the adult stage. We offered many varieties of classes from combat to healing along with Chinese medicine just to name a few.
I am very proud and honored to be in the towns of Agawam and Feeding Hills. This area is our home base for me to teach and grow together with my students. My teaching methods consist of philosophy, spiritual, eastern and western culture and martial arts. My students and the surrounding people here are my greatest pride and joy.
Muay Thai has been referred to as the "Art of Eight Limbs" meaning that is uses the fists, elbows, knees and legs to strike the opponent.
Boxing is an old-fashioned fighting art that uses the fists to strike your opponent with good footwork to dodge the opponents' strikes.
Customizable for your specific body and goals, this is not a generic one-size-fits all exercise program.
Specialized therapy sessions including Thai and Chinese medicated oils, we are a proud to offer one of the best services in Western Massachusetts.
