ND Bengal Bouts

Vibe Productions was recently invited to film a boxing match at the 79th annual Bengal mission bouts match-up at the Notre Dame Joyce Center.  The event conceived in 1931 by legendary football coach Knute Rockney to keep his football players in shape during the off-season still goes on today and raises around $50,000 annually for charity in Dhaka, Bangladesh where the Holy Cross-founded Notre Dame College is located.  Donations are used for various purposes including schooling, disaster relief, clinics, food and the institution of social projects involving the thousands of people who receive the benefit of these donations.

The tournament is comprised entirely of ND students who train for several months just for the event.  I’ve included a brief video clip from one of the contests.
