Have you ever heard about China’s MMA Club for Poor and Orphaned Boys?
In fact, Enbo MMA Club gives opportunity to young boys in difficult situations. Most of them come from poor families who can’t really afford studies. However, some others do not even have a family to support them.
Over the years Vice has done a great job in producing some very brief but eyes opening documentaries. This one about China’s MMA Club for Poor and Orphaned Boys is their newest.
Everybody tries to make their best when it comes to fighting, like Banma Duoji, an 18 years old MMA Champion. Even thought he’s not the best in the gym Banma is the most famous. He grew up in a very poor single-parent family in Tibet and reached Enbo as soon as he heard of it. This young Champion has fought 5 professional matches and won all of them.
Even though the Enbo Club has closed, Banma still continues his trainings. He admits that if it wasn’t for fighting and training he would end up being a drug dealer or a robber for sure.
For this reason he is very thankful to his trainer Enbo. As Banma says, besides skills and techniques he taught him a good way of living and life lessons.
