PUNCH for Your Health – Thai-boxing Training and Service Programme  (Phase 1)

Being mindful of and taking actions to improve one’s physical and mental health is crucial especially during the post-pandemic recovery.

In PUNCH for Your Health, students will learn the sports and strengthen oneself, then carry forward the positivity by providing training to some underprivileged teenagers in the community. After the training, with a bond built up between the students and the teenagers, the teenagers will be invited to visit HKBU campus for a personal development workshop, to be delivered by the students.
