Accra, April 21, GNA- The Ghana Karate-do Association is to organise its second Black Belt holders college this weekend as part of its programme towards revamping performance of its members.

The workshop is to afford the martial artists the opportunity of sharing ideas on issues such as handling of private clubs, promoting cordial relation with the media and to find measures of re-activating martial arts and salvaging the sinking image of martial arts in the country.

Sensei Melvin Brown, Chairman of the newly formed Technical Committee of the Association who announced the programme line-up to the frequent modifications.

The Chairman who is a former international gold medallist in many world Karate championships called on other former martial artists and local film producers to take advantage of the workshop to learn the techniques of the sport.

Sensei Brown appealed to the youth especially ladies to patronise the training exercises of the association so that they can master the art of self-defence and to learn the techniques of discipline that the sport teaches.

He said in this era of domestic violence and armed robberies, it is important and necessary that both men and women learn the art of self-preservation to save themselves from charlatans.

Sensei Brown appealed to organisations to help support the Karate Association so that they can train more of the youth to compete in many more world competitions.

England based Sensei Tony Aidoo, Sensei Kwabena Poku, Sensei Sardisu Mahama Prince Wilson are among others members of the Union of Federation of African Karate who are expected to grace the workshop.
