School’s Out For Tiger Cubs
‘School’s out’ this week at Tiger Muay Thai & MMA, Phuket for a group of local students.
Tuesday June 5th will see over fifty students from the British International School, Phuket make their way to Tiger for their annual end of year party.
This is the second time that BIS have selected Tiger Muay Thai & MMA, Phuket for their special day, following a successful trip in 2011.
Tiger’s Director of Education and Sales, Philippe Lauren, feels that the camp plays a major role in raising awareness of traditional Thai culture to the local expatriate community.
“Tiger Muay Thai & MMA is always striving to drive awareness to the local community and their families,” says Phillippe. “It is with great excitement that we welcome back the British International School’s 6th Grade classes to enjoy a fun and informative day whilst learning about Thailand’s most time honored tradition – Muay Thai.”
Ever willing to learn, the students will begin their day with a history lesson in Muay Thai and the traditional Wai Kru ritual. They will then take part in a Muay Thai training class with the camp’s trainers followed by a lesson in Brazilian jiu-jitsu inside Tiger’s new world class MMA facility. The day will be rounded off by a healthy and nutritious lunch at the camp’s Tiger Grill.
The British International School, Phuket was established in 1996 and comprises of four sections; Pre-School, Primary School, Middle School and High School. The school caters for over nine hundred students – from 18 months to 18 years old – from Thailand and around the world.
