For those who find yoga a bit tame, a new martial arts training centre opened on Friday on the ninth floor of LKF Tower to cater to the increasing number of people who prefer to stay in shape by kicking butt than balancing their chakras. Started by martial arts trainer Damien Roche (pictured, right) with jockey Olivier Doleuze (left), Kontact is 'fashionable and efficient for training with professional fighters', Roche said of the 5,600 sq ft unisex centre. Although the operation also offers Brazilian jiu-jitsu, mixed martial arts and karate kyokushinkai, on this night, the guests were more interested in knocking down drinks than opponents. After kickboxing and Muay Thai demonstrations, it was time to kick back and hip hop. One notable attendee was action star and former Jackie Chan stunt-team member Ken Lo Wai-kwong, who helped the gym promote the idea that fighting is enjoyable exercise, rather than torment and pain. Lo wished such a luxury gym had existed in his days of training. 'There was no air conditioning then, and we just had a few big sandbags. It was very severe. Now, boxing is more of an enjoyment most people use to lose weight.'
