Federation battles to supply bokator demand

TV5’s popular local affairs program, Morodok Khmer, filmed the national bokator team on Tuesday for its Saturday show, featuring Cambodian Bokator Federation general secretary Hok Chheang Kim and five students.

“With the invitation from various organisations, private companies and some departments, we are now often invited to give performances. However, we currently have only 10 students to respond the needs of the public,” Hok Chheang Kim told the Post.
