There was a boy who, he said, and none doubted, had helped his father to beat off with rifles from the veranda a rush of Akas
in the days when those head-hunters were bold against lonely plantations.
Taggart will make his first title defence in Warrington in September and is revelling in the AKA
system and step-up, as the rules are similar to his first love of Thai boxing.
For example, if the AKAs
raise $60,000, they are able to make grant recommendations for up to $90,000, which are supported by the Trust.
The inspiration for the trio's formation was the music and lifestyle of the Aka
pygmies who live in the Central African rainforest.
