Sovima, May 24 (MExN): The fourth edition of Spar Wars organised by The Combat Academy in collaboration with the Dimapur Wushu Association took place at Ground Zero, The Combat Academy in Sovima on May 24. 

Fighters from various districts from Nagaland and Meghalaya participated in the tournament in three weight categories which had cash prizes for the first, second and third place winners.

Mankho Konyak from Mon won the first place in the under 55 kg weight category, while Neichulie Kuotsu from Kohima and Lichonthung Odyuo from Wokha won the first place in the above 70 kg and under 65 kg weight categories respectively.

“The idea of spar wars is to create an environment where young athletes can compete safely and get in a small way financially rewarded for their skills. We had food stalls that added to the vibe where young fans could come watch fights with their friends and have a good time” Khriemelie Metha, founder of The Combat Academy Nagaland stated in an update.
