At the launch Ambassador Viravakin of Thailand was pleased that South African youth were involved in a sport which is about self-discipline, health, fitness and self-defence. He described the sport as character building as it will also have a positive influence in other aspects of the youngsters lives. The Embassy donated gloves, mats, punching and kicking bags and other equipment.

Member of the Mayoral Committee (MMC) Nozipho Tyobeka Makeke for Sport and Recreation thanked the Embassy and the Thai government for their contribution to the first phase of this project giving assurances that the initiative will have the continued support of the City of Tshwane.

Mpho Letsoalo and Kru Yai Mario Da Silva, President and Head Coach of Muay Thai Boran South Africa were keen to increase the membership as they have experienced first-hand the difference the discipline and training in the martial arts has made in many young South African lives.
