Muay Thai is a legendary fighting style, a sport known for its strength and agility. Your body’s double fists, legs, elbows and knees become the eight ‘weapons’ used to attack your opponent. As a result, the attack power is extremely strong and concentrated. Come witness an exhilarating live Muay Thai-style fight at Terrace this weekend. If you’d like to try this cool self-defense sport, there will be chances to win free classes on the night!

Sat Sept 21, 10pm; free entry. Terrace. See event listing

Join them this Saturday and see what those class clowns are up to now – although, most of them haven’t changed too much! With a variety of school-themed games, you’ll be kicking yourself if you miss this one! 

Sat Sept 21, 8-10pm; RMB80 presale, RMB100 at door. Chuan Shuo Cafe & Bar. See event listing. Tickets.

It’s mango madness! The Lounge at Sheraton Shenzhen Nanshan will be transformed into a bright yellow room of sunshine this September, inspired by – you guessed it – mangos.
