The kickboxing champion shared a video of the martial arts coach violently punching a female student. The footage went viral.
The video shows what appears to be a kickboxing coach punching a female student in the face. The student is not wearing any protective gear and does her best to block the coach’s punches.
After a few punches, the coach accelerates the rhythm of his blows. The fast and successive punches hurt the student, almost knocking her out.
Moroccan kickboxing champion, Badr Hari, shared the video on his Facebook page. He expressed his shock at the video and called on the managers of gyms and coaches to stamp out such behavior.
I am particularly shocked by this video which shows an unconscious « man » beating a young girl. This is not sport. This is not kick boxing. This horrific scene shouldn’t happen and I cannot remain insensitive. Please do not allow this cowarldy and irresponsible attitude in your gyms.
