Canadian expat hosts free boxing classes

FRIDAY, August 31, 2018

A 31-year-old Canadian woman, who married a Thai man 12 years ago, has put her passion for Muay Thai to good use by offering free children's lessons at her husband's boxing gym in Nakhon Ratchasima's Muang Yang district.

Frances Watthanaya or "Mali" and her husband Thanit Watthanaya, 33, hoped to pass on their love for the martial art to the next generation so they could spend their free time practising Muay Thai.

Twenty children have joined the free lessons provided by the expat.
"I want children in the community to love exercising, stay away from drugs and be trained in self-defence," she said.
