David John, an instructor with the club, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Friday in Lagos that the partnership would enhance the development of karate in the state.

John said that the outfit, being an affiliate of the Karate Federation (KFN), had the responsibility of training young karatekas and providing them with kits.

He said the club had started training karatekas that were discovered at a clinic for secondary schools organised by the association in July.

John said that of the 30 karatekas discovered at the clinic, 15 had had shown great skills in the sport, adding that they would be given the necessary coaching encouragement.  

“Karate is an interesting sport but the standard is falling because of lack of awareness. We (club) want to give adequate publicity to promote the sport at the grassroots.

“As many that are interested, we will provide them with karate uniforms and also monitor them in their schools,’’ he said.

John also said that the welfare of the trainees should be looked into by the association, saying that such would arouse their interest in the martial art.

Adewale Adelekan, Secretary, Lagos State karate association, told NAN that the further training of the karatekas was to ensure that all did not end at the clinic|.

“We want to raise future champions for the state and to ensure that the sport thrives at the grassroots.

“The association is looking into the welfare of the karatekas,’’ Adelekan said. (NAN)
