TEACHERS DAY - OCTOBER 16TH 2011
"At Extreme Thai Boxing Academy & the TBA we observe Teachers Day each year"
Respect and discipline are qualities that are expected of Thai boxers.
The Thai Boxing Association of the USA celebrates Teacher's Day every October 16th. On this day students are asked to make a ceremonial gift in thanks to their teacher. A typical Teacher's Day present would include the following:
This present should include:
(the following in a bowl)
1 Candle
3 Sticks of incense
Small amount of uncooked rice (~1/2 cup)
1 Piece of fruit
Dry natural flowers
These items are put in a bowl and presented to the teacher. At the time of presentation the student faces the teacher and assumes a kneeling Wai position. Then the student will bow three times in respect and thanks to the teacher. Kop Kune Krup, Wai
& yes it's Ajarn Chai Sirisute's birthday!!!
