School backs Canary fighting
Canary fighting or “lucha Canaria” lives on in the Los Realejos school of Palo Blanco thanks to a new initiative.
The facilities here for the old sport have undergone restoration, thanks to the backing of parents, staff and the local council. In fact, following the return to school, it is already in use.
It has been conditioned with special sand for this type of practice as a safety measure against possible falls.
Los Realejos already has a municipal school of lucha and aims to capture children at a young age so that an old Canary sport can continue through the new ages.
