This summer the playscheme children are enjoying a learning the art of Muay Thai twice a week!

Muay Thai children's classes in action

Each class is composed of a unique set of Muay Thai techniques, exercises, and drills. Pad work, bag work, and partner work are introduced to develop children’s knowledge of the mental, cultural, and ethical components of Muay Thai.

The lessons learnt extend far empowering children to find their fullest potential at school, at home, and in their communities. It enables kids to establish lifelong healthy habits, and helps them develop the courage to take on new challenges with the right mindset. They will have fun, make lasting friendships, and walk out with a winning state of mind.

We often get asked if we allow bouncy castles for parties and to that we say Yes, in our Upper Hall!

Why just the upper hall? It’s big enough to hold a castle (or two) while still giving the children space to play and for you to set up tables for food and drinks.

Thank you N1 Inflatables for sharing these images of castles you’ve set up in the upper hall.
