Welcome to the Erawan Thai Boxing website

Erawan Thai Boxing is a small, yet active gym based in County Durham North East England. Ran by Steven Wright who has over 20 years experience training under Sean Dooney from the early 1990’s alongside the likes of Lee Smith, Dave Berriman, Dave Corrigan, Sean Grant, Gary McAllister, Sean Dooney Jnr and Nick Hands amongst others.

Steven has been running a Thai Boxing gym since 2007 under the Kings Cobra camp for Sean Dooney.

Erawan Thai Boxing Began life in 2013 and has since established itself as a credible gym throughout the UK. As a coach I am always looking to add and improve what and how we teach. The Muay Thai I teach today has altered and developed so much to how I may have taught even a year ago, and that will continue, merging older styles with new (never discarding) – continuous development, and as a result we have been producing some excellent fighters (both junior and adults) and winning many championships titles.

We also have our fighters taking part on the biggest promotions in the UK.

In 2015 / 2016 Steven was selected as the WMF (World Muay Thai Federation) coach for team UK.

So whether you wish to get fit, lose weight, gain confidence or become a pro fighter. We have the skills, knowledge and experience to help you achieve your goals. We pride ourselves on offering quality teaching in a friendly environment and offer a warm welcome to new starters. Most of our members join us for non competitive reasons, simply to enjoy learning something new. Erawan Thai Boxing is only small but has its own humble, dedicated gym. We have one main gym area, matted throughout with a range of pads, heavy bags, punch bags and boxing ring. The gym is a smartly presented and has many benefits such as:


*Access to a fantastic onsite modern Cardio suite (small additional fee)

*Door leading direct to acres of football fields, ideal for group running and sprint work

*Large sports hall, ideal for circuit and fitness based workouts

*Clean and smart ladies and gents toilets & changing rooms

*Power showers

*Large car park right outside the gym

*Reception area selling a range of refreshments

*A licensed bar, great for after class get togethers or gym nights out (fundraising evenings)
