This rather unorthodox competition was apparently inspired by the Finnish TV series Vintiöt (Rascals), where the characters often kill time by kicking walls. Ironically, the events of the TV series also transpired in Kerava, local newspaper Keski Uusimaa points out.

The tournament's organizer, a martial arts instructor named Edla Niemi, said that both professional athletes and amateurs alike are invited to take part in the competition, scheduled to be held on August 28.

While it as yet remains unclear exactly how and according to which criteria the participants’ performance will be judged, Niemi said that the town administration has already approved the event.
