Fighting in the street – Raro style

One of the highlights of last week’s World Health Day in Rarotonga was the Fight-Do session outside Westpac Bank at lunchtime.
Fight-Do is a cross between shadow-boxing and martial arts, set to thumping music (the ‘do’ in Fight-Do is pronounced as in martial arts like judo, taekwondo and bushido).
Bank staff came out to have a go and plenty of public health workers and passers-by also joined in.
The great beat and all those people obviously having fun should be a good advertisement for the benefits of exercise which was one of the purposes behind World Health Day.
