Never stop growing. Never stand still. Never stop Learning.
This is Noe Kuremoto’s determined outlook on life.
She wants to push herself beyond her everyday routine. Grow forever. Run. Learn until her heart stops.
Her chosen method? To become a Muay Thai Kick Boxer.
Shot in and around K.O. Gym in Bethnal Green, East London, this film explores a hard working, dedicated and altogether unexpected Londoner and her personal challenge to compete in a home amateur fight representing K.O. Gym.
Dealing with vulnerability, normality, passion and desire, she experiences unique communities and incredibly trustworthy human relationships. She enters a world where ‘living for the moment’ can be more rewarding than planning for the next, and where the results of her hard work are instantly tangible.
London is growing in new and exciting ways all the time, but only if the people who make London are doing so too. This is Noe’s contribution.
Recently broadcast on Channel 4's 'Shooting Gallery' show in the UK.
