Kickboxing and mixed martial arts are two sports in Pakistan that are slowly gaining traction amongst Pakistanis. While the sport is known to few in the country, there are still people here who are passionate about it.
Kickboxing is mostly known here as a menâ€™s only sport. But a girl from Karachi is changing the mindset through showing her passion for the sport.
Rameesha Shahid is a master kickboxer and teaches kickboxing to other girls at K7 Fitness and Kickboxing Academy. But it wasnâ€™t always like this at the academy.
Before Rameesha became a student, K7 never had a female kickboxing student. Rameesha was the first female student of the academy who trained under Master Jamil Cahndio alongside. When she started kickboxing, she was the only female student in the class.
