As part of our Norfolk Day 2019 celebrations we are proud to become a sponsor of the Union Thai Boxing Group based in Gorleston, Great Yarmouth, England.
Team Union Thai was created in February 2018 by Brazilian-born Marcos Lopes (pictured with Rachel Blackburn). Lessons are taught at Top Body Gym in Gorleston on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. These sessions are open to all ages and levels of experience, from the very beginner to experienced fighters. There is also a ladies only class on Thursday.
The aim of the club, which has over 30 members, is to provide a safe environment for people to improve their skills and fitness while instilling a social team aspect in an area where these types of opportunities are limited.

"We will use the funding from US2U Consulting to buy more equipment for our training sessions including another punch bag and more floor mats" said Marcos. The group are looking for more funding so they can buy uniforms and wish to expand their services to the broader goal of helping troubled children and supporting positive mental health.
