A NEW gym has been officially opened in Kirkintilloch by Thai monks from the Dhammapadipa Buddhist Temple in Edinburgh.
The monks blessed the M-MAG Muay Thai kickboxing club gym in a traditional Thai ceremony.
M-MAG’s Mescho Dunko told the Herald: “The blessing was designed to ward off evil spirits and bring success to the club.”
M-MAG donated £150 to the monks towards the building of a new temple in Edinburgh.
The community club is holding an open day from 10am to 2pm this Saturday, September 17 at their new gym at Unit 2, Old Mill Industrial Estate, Kirkintilloch. For more information call Mescho on the club mobile on 07807 508612. All are welcome.
