Young Man Jumping

People playing sepak takraw

Some local people played sepak takraw

Shot in the city of Thanlyin, Myanmar.

There was a small field by the roadside. And some young men were seen. They split up into two groups across the net. They were just playing sepak takrow. Although it was not popular in Japan, it was one of the popular sports in Southern Eastern Asia. The rule is similar to volleyball. The players have to handle the ball not to hit the ground. Yet the big difference was it was played without hands. The players are allowed to use their feet, knee, chest, and head.

The ball drifted on the air. The young man in this photo just jumped and was about to shoot the ball with the head. And other players and the audiences looked at him with breathless interest. All the people seemed to play frantically as if they left their full-time job behind.
