I have seen grand master sken perform the most skillfull moves that only a true master can accomplish. He has dedicated his whole life to the art of Muay Thai / Boran and is a superb teacher. If you have the opportunity to be one of his students you must do it. More...

Could not recommend this place highly enough! Grand Master Sken and Kru Kay Hampson were so welcoming and friendly from the moment we arrived in Lydney. Whether it is Muay Thai, self-defence, fitness or you just want to improve your general well-being, then you need to train here. Thank you for having us over, we will be back :) More...

I have been seriously involved in martial arts since 1983 and Master Sken is one of the best martial artists I have observed. I have only seen his videos, as I live in the U.S. but as a former martial arts instructor and police officer in the state of Florida, I recognize effective combat skills and Master Sken possesses those skills. The true measure of a good teacher is his students and from what i observe in multiple videos, Master Sken produces outstanding students. MSA is a very impressive martial arts organization. More...
