FSC Exeter Honiton Muay Thai set for world record attempt at the inaugural Honiton Sausage and Cider Festival.
Muay Thai martial artists are aiming to kick their way into the record books at next month’s inaugural Honiton Sausage and Cider Festival.
Members of FSC Exeter Honiton Muay Thai will be attempting to set the Guinness World Record for the most Muay Thai clinch knee kicks in an hour during the event on Saturday, May 3.
The record attempt, involving club members of all ages, will take place between 11am and noon on the main festival field.
Coach and club owner Sonny Perez will also be looking to set his own record for the most clinch knee kicks completed in an hour by one person.
“We are aiming to do as many as we can in an hour,” says Gill Day, who was speaking on behalf of the club. “We are really excited and we are all spurred up for it.”
Club members are already busy preparing for their record attempt – practising the move at the beginning of each class.
“It will be good for the town and will put Honiton on the map,” added Gill. “It will also be good for the club itself. It should be quite an event.”
