In Kayole, a slum in Kenya’s capital Nairobi, young boys and girls converge at a social hall at least twice a week to work on their martial arts skills. Some previously were involved in criminal activities but have found a new pastime — Muay Thai, a combat sport originally from Thailand. The sport has provided most with a new lease of life, away from drugs, crime and sometimes even death. Rael Ombuor reports.
