Mud wrestling warrior

Mud ball wrestling festival was held hundreds years ago in Vietnamese village. The players covering with mud, playing with wooden ball looked like a soldiers of Gods that protected the village people. The moment of the ball flying ahead the lens made me specially feeling. it was not a match, it was a rituals of the village Gods that was held hundreds year ago.
