Pakistan's only woman boxing coach

Shahnaz Kamal Khan (L) coaches a student during a training session at the stadium in Peshawar, Pakistan December 20, 2019. Kamal is the first and only international female boxing coach registered with the boxing federation of Pakistan, in a male-dominated sport and a conservative country. That hasn't stopped the Peshawar-born woman from making her mark -- she's doing her best to nurture a younger generation of boxers.

Shahnaz Kamal Khan gestures as she instructs students during a training session. "I had to face a lot of opposition from many directions," Kamal said. "My family, and my in-laws all opposed me, all relatives also objected. No one supported me except my husband. But when I attained a certain position and became a national and then an international coach, then everyone started lauding me. Before that I had to face a lot of difficulties, everywhere. I even had to leave my village."

Shahnaz Kamal Khan's shields and badges are seen at her home in Peshawar. When her husband Syed Kamal Khan discovered her interest, he started coaching her, breaking with social norms of Pathans -- the ethnic group they belong to. "My daughter was born and I thought, 'If there is no one else, I will make my daughter a boxer,'" he said. "But then there had to be a female coach for my daughter. So for this purpose, I tore right through the Pathan culture and brought my wife into boxing. I have no objection to that at all."

Shahnaz Kamal Khan coaches a student at the stadium in Peshawar. "The future of female boxing in Pakistan is very bright, but only if we get a little bit of support," she said. "We had taken a start from zero, but by the grace of God, we have gone on to around 80 or 90 percent. If the government supports us, the community supports us, God willing we can produce a 100 percent result, like we did in the National Games."
