Glow Kicks – 21st May 2021
Our loooooong awaited glow kick class will commence on 21st May 2021.
The intention was to start this in the winter when we had darkness earlier, however, we have had so much excitement and interest that we are pushing on with this as we think it’s imperative for people and their mental wellness to get those endorphin rushes from moving and having FUN.

We are gonna start with the class from 8 pm-9 pm but we may need to adjust the timings depending on the darkness. Make sure you are registered so you get all the up-to-date notifications:
 https://phoenixmuaythai.co.uk/glow-kick/

Bank holiday Monday – 31st May 2021
On bank holiday Monday, there will be a joint class from 7 pm to 8 pm. All ages (min. age 5 years old) and abilities are welcome to join in on this class.

Happy Birthday – 5th June 2021
20th anniversary of Phoenix Muay Thai.

Pad Work – 21st June 2021
We will be back to doing pad work, we will also be reintroducing member to member insurance, this hasn’t been necessary during covid due to us only utilising the bags for individual work. When we revert to pad work, this insurance will be mandatory again.
We don’t ask students to join until after 4 weeks of training. After this period students will be required to join.
Insurance: £30 per year.

Celebrations – 26th June 2021
We will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of Phoenix Muay Thai and being out of lockdown CALLING ALL STUDENTS PAST AND PRESENT
I don’t know what we are going to be doing, but trust me, it’s going to be epic.
I am thinking of clearing the walkway and turning it into a club, get DJs on lights the lot. Everyone bring their own beer – drink responsibly, but party like lunatics 🙂

Sparring – 4th July 2021
The return of the sparring class. all students must have their own appropriate equipment, including gum shields, shin pads, appropriate boxing gloves for their size and weight.
https://phoenixmuaythai.co.uk/shop/
 

New Bags
We have introduced some new branded Phoenix Muay Thai bags up in the training room on a clever pulley system, which I can’t wait for you to see. It means now we can now increase our classes to 18 people all with their own bag station with social distancing in place.

Saturday 12.15 Class
This class used to be the adult only class but we have turned it into an adults and family class. If you are training as a family, all children must be accompanied by and an adult (max 2 children per adult). If your child has trained in the children’s class that day, they can’t train in the adults class too. It is the parents/guardians responsibility to ensure that the children they are supervising are respectful in the training room and do not disturb the other students.


 

In loving memory
We are saddened to announce that during this last lockdown, we have lost 2 beloved Phoenix Phamily members. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families and friends of Rachel West and Michelle Murphy. They will always hold their place in our Phamily.
Rest in peace ladies

IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDING

Info regarding a new game on Social Media

We have become aware of a popular new game on Facebook that is gaining popularity amongst young people, although this term is also used on Snapchat, Instagram and YouTube, and want to bring it to your attention. Just as a reminder– the legal age for accessing Facebook/Instagram/YouTube with a personal account is 13 but we know some younger boys have.

 The game is called “Smash or Pass”. Children and young people upload pictures of themselves so other users can say if they would either “smash” which means to hook up sexually with someone or “pass” as in no thanks. This is a form sexploitation and as well as being inappropriate for children and young people to both upload and view these images it could be anyone accessing these pictures. Adults as predators go where children and young people are and will be playing the game using false identities.

 Even if children and young people are playing the game with images of celebrities it is not a positive game and reinforces sexism and misogyny. We wanted to bring to your attention for you to discuss with your child if you feel this is appropriate.

Jaiven Get His Uniform

­

Jaiven was presented with their uniform in the Wednesday class.

Parents purchased their uniform as they have watched their progression and recognised their commitment to Phoenix Muay Thai over the past 4-8 weeks.

Kru presented the children with their uniform and explained the importance of the uniform and how it represents our club and how they should act respectfully at all times, especially when they are wearing the club uniform.

Welcome to the Phoenix Phamily.

Refunds

We know that some of you are still awaiting a refund. We were under the impression that WIX would automatically refund the payment back to the account it was taken from and we know that this has happened in some instances. If you believe you are still due a refund and it has been more than 3 weeks, please follow these steps:
1. check you cancelled 24 hours before the class you booked
2. check the account you paid with for the 3 weeks after the cancellation date to ensure you haven’t had an automatic refund
3. if no refund, bring your cancellation confirmation e-mails with you to the gym and leave them with reception
4. we will check the cancellations and refund where applicable

Please bear with us to get this sorted, we will work through it systematically and refund you ASAP

Aberdeen to host all female boxing event on

By Tyrone Smith

BBC Scotland Sport

World champion Denise Castle will headline an all-female professional boxing event behind closed doors in Aberdeen on Saturday, 21 November.

The nine-fight card will be the first show in the UK to be overseen by an all-female team of officials.

Scottish multi-weight world champion Lee McAllister is promoting the event, which is sanctioned by the British and Irish Boxing Authority.

“We are making a stand here for the female boxing world,” he said.

“We are trying to push female boxing to the next level and get them 50-50 rights with the male fighters. How many shows are there with three male judges and a male referee? Every show.

“So we are trying to do it the opposite way round and put pressure on every other promoter, every other manager, every other commission to give the chance to female boxers and boxing officials.”

Former WBC muay thai world champion Castle, 48, secured the Wiba world minimum weight title a year ago with a fifth-round stoppage over Sutthinee Bamrungpao in Bangkok.

Her opponent for the bout at Aberdeen’s Northern Hotel is still to be confirmed.

Nicola Hopewell will meet Tasha Boyes in a rematch after Boyes’ arm injury retirement in their previous encounter.

Elsewhere on the undercard, Caitlin Foran faces Beccy Ferguson and Ellie Coulson takes on Czech fighter Ester Konecna.
