Torkington Park, Stockport, Greater Manchester (SK6 SK7)
The festival was a huge success, even though the weather on the Sunday morning was like a monsoon in Thailand! By the afternoon the sun came shining through which brought with it the audience.
The demonstrations of the Thai Martial Arts which were performed two times daily over the weekend were well received.
It was very nice to hear some of the remarks from the Thai Community when they commented on the way our demonstration team keep the traditions of the Thai Martial Arts alive.
A Special thank you to MSA (Master Sken’s Academy), Stockport, led by Kru Simon Green for their support.

Wat Putthai Swan (Buddhai Swan), Si Autthaya, Thailand this temple is believed to have been built by the first King of Ayutthaya King U-Thong around 1350 and it is believed the King trained in Krabi krabong at the temple during his reign.
It was the site of a renowned martial arts school for many centuries, teaching the art of warfare and the use of Krabi Krabong the Thai weapons system.
The school is synonymous with three great warrior Kings, King Taksin, King Naresuan and King Naresuan’s brother King Ekathotsarot.
In 1957 the school moved to Bangkok with the sole purpose of teaching and promoting the Thai martial arts. Built by Por Kru Samai Mesamarn (1914-1998) Kru Tony’s teacher, the school became very famous for its re-enactments of famous Thai victories and performed many times before Thai Royalty*.
Today’s school has returned to its roots in the old city of Si Ayutthaya and continues to teach the Royal Thai Army.
To be accepted as a student of this historical school is one of the greatest honours bestowed upon any student of the Thai martial arts.
Anan and sister Ploy who perform the demonstrations of Krabi Krabong for Sitsiam camp/Buddhai Swan, Ashton-under-Lyne, Tameside, Greater Manchester were recommended for further tuition at Buddhai Swan, Si Ayutthaya in Thailand by Kru Tony Moore.
It was a tremendous and unique accolade therefore for Anan and Ploy to be accepted as students and to further their studies under the tutelage of Arjarn (Master) Sira Messamarn, son of the late Por Kru Samai Messamarn at Buddhai Swan,Si Ayutthaya, Thailand.
*Sitsiam Camp/Buddhai Swan, England regularly perform demonstrations for the Royal Thai Embassy.
