I covered this event on Saturday evening. This was the first kickboxing event I have shot at and I really enjoyed my experience. A bit of a challenging shoot due to space constraints and my lack of height. Next time I know to arrive a bit earlier to get a prime shoot spot and I have a better idea of what type of extra equipment/accessories to lug along. I found shooting this event a lot more challenging than shooting roller derby action. With derby I get a lot of space to move even if there are restrictions for safety concerns.
This was an International Sport Karate Association Sanctioned Oriental Muay Thai Event
