Greek gym mixes Muay Thai and anti-fascism

Oct 30, 2017, 09:05 PM

At the White Tiger Muay Thai Camp in Athens, they believe that your politics should be a part of every aspect of your life. You don’t just learn martial arts here. If you’re an anarchist and an anti-fascist, the camp is a place where your beliefs are welcomed and fostered.

This week we take you to Athens’ staunchly leftist neighbourhood of Exarchia, where we’ll meet people who spend their days training to physically confront fascism in the streets.

On the show: Al Jazeera journalist Patrick Strickland, who visited the gym and also lives in Exarchia. Our host is Priyanka Tilve.
