Khru Sam believes that as a martial artist, it isn’t enough to become technically proficient. What is required to achieve your full potential as a fighter and as a human being is to go beyond technique and to develop your own personal interpretation. He has taken this into his coaching career and encourages his fighters to see themselves as ‘Martial Artist’ who must be willing to commit themselves to what is in effect a unique three point training plan.
By becoming affiliated with the KO group he was acknowledging the teachings and support he had received over the years from his teacher Master Bill Judd, who had not only coached Sam as a Martial Artist but who had set out for him a deeper philosophical framework to work with.
By establishing SN COMBAT ACADEMY, Khru sam was ensuring that access to his coaching skills would be available to all young men and women regardless of their background, age and experience in martial arts.
Khru Sam has always believed that, as a Muay Thai Martial Artist, it isn’t enough to become technically proficient. What is required to achieve your potential as a fighter and as a human being is to go beyond technique and to develop your own personal interpretation of this ancient art form.
Khru Sam has taken this philosophy into his coaching career and he encourages his fighters to see themselves as ‘Martial Artists’ who must be willing to commit themselves to what is in effect a unique three point training plan:
Khru Sam has demonstrated that his unique fighting style a long with the high standards being set and achieved, provides a sanctuary within SN Combat Gym that is relaxed and a friendly environment perfect for newcomers to the sport and seasoned professionals to train and perfect their skills. One-to-one and group sessions are available – all under the supervision of Kru Sam who is demonstrating that his unique fighting style, approach, system of fitness training and fight strategies enables fighters to become champions time and time again on all levels.
The results speak for themselves with two of his young Martial Artists having in November 2013 become Unified World Junior Champions. For any Sports Coach the highest accolade is to have coached a World Champion and this is a goal that few achieve. For Khru Sam to have coached not one but two young men to become World Champions within a period of four years is an outstanding achievement that is already inspiring the group Regional and National Champions under his care and supervision to believe that they too can achieve the highest level of recognition in their chosen sport.
