Taekwando spreads its wings

ANOTHER busy year for all other sporting codes in the country, and it's no exception for PNG Taekwondo Union, with more focus directed at spreading the gospel of Taekwondo to other centres in the country.

President of PNG Taekwondo Union Inc. Jamuga Stone, has put in place a schedule to develop the sport of Taekwondo in the Western and Gulf provinces.

Youths in the two provinces are now been encouraged to participate in the training workshops. Daru will be having the first training workshop set for February 22- 26.

The training workshop will be conducted by chief instructor, Jamuga Stone and master Han Wong, a well known instructor from Kuklewon, the headquarters of Taekwondo in South Korea.

The program also coincides with Stone's drug awareness drive aimed at sending the message across to youths in the Western Province, to kick drugs out of PNG.

And he is using the sport to drum the message across to the youths in the Province.
A similar program is also penned out for Gulf Province, which is set to be conducted in March.

The interest, which Stone described, has grown after the sport was included in the 4th PNG Games andan increasing number of youths have indicated their intention to take up the sport.
Jamuga is also appealing for financial support from Western Provincial Government and other business houses for the event.
