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.
