Physical Resistance Festival – a big success and back next year!

“Now, whoever has courage and a strong and collected spirit in his breast, let him come forward, lace on the gloves and put up his hands.” – Virgil

“To me, boxing is like a ballet, except there’s no music, no choreography, and the dancers hit each other in the face” – Jack Handey

The beginning of the month saw the first Physical Resistance Festival. Hosted by the Anti-Fascist Network, and inspired by events like the Polish Freedom Fighters tournament, it was a mash-up of combat sports, football and drinking.

The Saturday saw anti-fascist fighters from around the country jump into the ring to face off over the course of twenty Muay Thai and boxing bouts. The fights were a mix of novice and experienced bouts. Weeks and months of hard training paid off in an atmosphere of great mutual respect. Honours were shared between the Red and the Black corners.
