Muay Thai Class at Noosa

This afternoon the Lexis Noosa students learnt some Muay Thai moves.

The students walked down to Pinaroo Park where the lesson was going to take place. First of all the teacher showed us some moves and quickly ran through the background of the sports so that we could get an understanding of what Muay Thai Martial Arts is and the history behind it.

Muay 5

We love doing these kinds of activities so that the students get to learn about different cultures!

Hope you all loved learning some Muay Thai.

Looks like Noosa is the place to be!
