Por Kru Day:
Thursday, 5th May.
Por Kru Day is the most important day of the Buddhai Swan calendar. It is a day when all Buddhai Swan students from around the world celebrate the life of Arjarn Samai Mesamarn (1914 -1998)
This year there was something very special about the event with so many students wishing to take part that the occasion had to be held over two days. The first day for the Sitsiam Camp’s Tiny Thais club and Junior students and day two for the senior students and specially selected juniors and Tiny Thais.
Every year the event grows bigger with not only the present-day students but with many former students in attendance to pay their respects.
This year we were honoured to have the event filmed for a secret project to be announced soon…….
The evening began with all students performing the “Wai Kru” respect to teacher ceremony. This was followed by demonstrations of the Ram Muay (Muay Thai Ritual Dance), Muay Boran (Traditional Thai Boxing) and Krabi Krabong (Thai Weapons Art).
Everyone who was fortunate enough to participate or witness the event enjoyed the evening immensely. So much so that one of our juniors commented “It was the best day of my life.”
At the conclusion of the ceremony a number our students stayed behind for some special filming which carried on late into the evening.
A special thank you to the film crew who spent many hours setting up lighting and filming the event helping ensure that the Thai Martial arts and the legacy of Por Kru is preserved for future generations.
