Buakaw Banchamek (formerly known as Buakaw Por Pramuk) is the most well known Muay Thai fighter in the world. With his stardom coming from his K-1 kickboxing titles, Buakaw played a huge role in showcasing Muay Thai to the world.
Now after years of nonstop fighting, he has now opened up his home gym of Buakaw Village which is 90 miles north of Chaign Mai where foreigners come from all over the world to train and learn from the living legend.
In this short glimpse inside Buakaw Village, we speak with the only foreigner who is sponsored by the gym – Alex Bublea. Alex is a veteran of 100 fights yet is one of the most inexperienced fighters at the gym. He chats with us and gives us some insight to what it’s like training at the home gym of Buakaw.
