Muay Thai kickboxing in Ghana
Sport in general has the potential to create jobs, contribute to GDP, enhance tourism, foster national cohesion, strengthen international ties and boost Ghana’s global image. In the field of martial arts, the nation is blessed with abundant talent. Muay Thai kickboxing is a rapidly growing sport globally and Ghana has produced several world champions and title holders. However, the sport remains heavily under-supported in Ghana, with limited public funding, corporate sponsorship and investment. In the absence of such support, many of Ghana’s young, aspiring and champion fighters have risen against social and economic odds through passion, hard work, perseverance and initiative.
The Pro Fighting Factory
The Pro Fighting Factory is a home-grown collective of martial artists who are committed to showcasing Ghana’s sporting talent both nationally and internationally. PFF was founded by legendary kickboxer and martial artist, Lawrence Nyanyo Nmai who hails from La in Accra. Lawrence competes and coaches across Africa, Europe and Asia. A world champion himself, he founded PFF to spawn a generation of fighters to fly the flag of Ghana high in the international martial arts arena. Lawrence Nyanyo Nmai is President of WBC WKN ISKA Ghana.
