Angkor Youth Boxing Club
Paddy's Fitness Centre is the home of the Angkor Youth Boxing Club.
Paddy Carson is the head coach.
The team trains every day from about 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Traditional English boxing is still emerging as a sport in Cambodia, and while there are a few "pure" boxers on the team, the majority are Kun Khmer fighters.
Kun Khmer (Pradal Serey)
Pradal serey translates to "freestyle boxing." It's often called Kun Khmer, kick boxing, or just fighting. In Cambodia, Kun Khmer defines the fight game.
The style of pradal serey dates to the Angkorean period, and carvings at Angkor Wat depict scenes of Kun Khmer's deadly battlefield predecessor, Bokator.
Fighters compete regularly at the CTN television stadium, and sometimes at the TV5 stadium. If you are interested in fighting -- or just fight training -- contact the gym.
