Student Activity Program


Muay Sangha builds martial artists with good ethics and spirit

Muay Sangha school is developing a monthly program to encourage students to embrace our philosophy not just with words but also with actions. Among many activities the program focuses mainly on doing good actions towards others. This program is optional and we do not press any student to follow it.

Every Tuesday Muay Sangha students meet at 6 am by the front door of the school. From there we travel to the Suandok temple area where we offer vegetarian food to the monks, in exchange the monks will give us their blessings. “Giving is receiving” and this is a good opportunity to learn that the more that we give the more that we receive; Also when we offer food to the monks we will cultivate a pure heart and detachment from material things.

The second activity that the Muay Sangha students practice is to clean a different temple once a month. Normally we choose the Full Moon (Buddha day) because at this time Lord Buddha was born, enlightened and passed away, also on this day we don’t have class. This activity will teach us how to make good actions and how to purify our mind. Our main goal is to help our students to develop positive wisdom. “A better world starts with our good actions first”

The third activity is that every New Moon (Buddha Day) Muay Sangha students go the local market, buy live fish, eels, turtles or any live aquatic animal. We then go to the Ping River and release them. This action teaches the students how to repay the karma generated by eating animals.
