Kim Veasna

    Kim Veasna (Khmer: គឹម វាសនា), born in 1999, is a Kun Khmer fighter originally from Svay Rieng Province, Cambodia. From a factory worker, Veasna transformed his life by dedicating himself to the ancient martial art of Kun Khmer. Known for his powerful and precise strikes, he has earned the nickname “The Stone Fist of Vaiko River.”

    From Factory Floors to Fighting Rings

    Veasna’s journey into Kun Khmer began at the age of 18 while he was working as a factory worker in 2014. His curiosity was piqued by a coworker who consistently rushed out at the end of the workday to train. Upon inquiry, he learned about Kun Khmer and was immediately drawn to it. Despite his night shifts, Veasna managed to train during the day under coach Hang Soeun. Early challenges and a minor injury briefly halted his training, but an opportunity to compete rekindled his commitment. Winning his first match revitalized his passion, and the accolades from his factory colleagues further fueled his dedication to the sport.

    His resolve led to a series of victories, prompting his trainer to secure him a position as a soldier. This allowed Veasna to quit his factory job and train full-time while living with his coach. Although he faced financial difficulties initially, his enthusiasm for martial arts prevailed. With the support of his earnings as a soldier and backing from his family, despite some hesitations, Veasna increasingly focused on achieving fame and mastering his craft. His fighting career took a significant leap forward in 2018 when he began facing international competitors.
