The Al Isharah annual Deaf Run and family fun day saw the return of the highly anticipated Tug Of War showdown.

Competing teams included reigning champions Human Aid, Al Isharah, boxing coach Abdul Hannan’s all star Brawlers Boxing team and Legends Muay Thai.

The event attracted a huge and excited crowd to cheer on all the teams who also raised money to support the Tower Hamlets based deaf charity.

Legends Muay Thai finished unbeaten to win the prestigious title to become the first new champions in three years.

Jubilant Legends Muay Thai captain Ashwaad Uddin said: “It’s been a tremendous honour to compete at this flagship event arranged by Al Isharah.

“Additionally, we are overjoyed with our victory. The field was strong and to beat the reigning champs Human Aid to win the title is a tremendous honour.

“We are humbled by the support shown for us and will be back to defend our trophy in 2017.”

The team at Legends Muay Thai offer the community a chance to train their mind and body, to utilise their time productively leading to a healthier lifestyle through Muay Thai.

Instructors aim to offer affordable solutions not only for the youth but adults too.

Having seen how Muay Thai has helped bridge the gap between people of different social and economic backgrounds in Thailand, Legends Muay Thai endeavour to bring this spirit to the local community; facilitating integration among people of all backgrounds.
