Bokator Fed hits back with national champs

The Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport has given the green light to the Cambodian Bokator Federation to resume hosting of their National Championships after a two-year hiatus.

According to CBF Secretary-General Hok Chheang Kim, between 150 and 200 male and female practitioners will be permitted to compete in this year’s event, which is slated to run from July 26-30 at the indoor hall of Olympic Stadium.

Approximately 20 clubs from across the Kingdom will be allowed to enter one member in each of the two weight classes (56kg and 65kg), while associations and academies are granted unlimited entries.

There will be 13 different categories of competition in both forms and combat.
