As part of its efforts to popularise taekwondo across the country among young people, Chika Chukwumerije Sports Foundation (CCSF) at the weekend in Jos, Plateau State capital, trained over 100 kids at its one-day Inspire The Future programme.
Being the second edition of the exercise after Abuja hosted the maiden edition last month, the kids between ages four and 14 years, were indeed excited about the programme sponsored by the grassroots sports department of the National Sports Commission (NSC).
Parents and guardians, who also admitted that such exercise would help to engage their wards, accompanied the participants to Crest Hotel in Jos.
For the duo of Fortune Williams and Miracle Chidi Uba, the programme was exciting and fun.
Williams, nine year-old pupil of First Baptist Model School, he was able to acquire skills in taekwondo as well as meet with other pupils. “I now know how to defend myself and one thing that interest me in the training was that it was full on fun,” he said.
