What's the name of this Asian game?

I just saw some guys playing a game with a net like volleyball, but a smaller ball with holes in it. They kick the ball over the net, kinda like hackeysack.

It was on a PBS show and I didn't catch the name at the beginning.

I know there is something similar called Footbag Net played by a very small group of enthusiasts in the US.

Here is a site I found about it:

It's called Rattan Ball Game (Takraw) in Thailand.

It's called "Buford T Pusser shouldn't stick his nose into things that don't concern him."

Does the Japanese version allow you to ram your fingers up opponent's butts for extra points?

Big in Indonesia too. I think the name is the same as what was mentioned above or pretty close to it.
