For the past month, pictures of kickboxing matches at the Mt. Hagen Town Market have made it on to Facebook drawing a lot of comments. Last week, I went to the market to see what actually happens there. We shot some footage for a TV story.
These pictures were shot by #KalakaiPhotography a month earlier.
It looks a bit rough, but this is actually a Kickboxing club – CITY RATS KICKBOXING ASSOCIATION.
They don’t have a gym to train in and the instructors who are kickboxers themselves, use what little equipment they have to train a group of kids many of whom come from broken families.
