From Kabul With Love, the Peace Taekwondo Academy

It’s 5:05 AM and Sayed Hassan Rezay is yelling out commands in Hindi, English, and Korean. He commands a small army of fifty youngsters, guiding them through a series of powerful kicks that could knock a human out cold. The kicks, however, are controlled. Their power directed at a target. Both a literal one and a figurative one, the Olympics.

Vinay Singh sits by the sidelines. He keeps a keen eye on the training. Watching each athlete as they push their body through the rigour of the session. The fighters and the sparring mats are drenched in sweat.

Welcome to the Peace Taekwondo Academy.
