The Gambia Kung Fu Association has once again recommenced their quest of decentralizing Kung fu across the country with the recent examination of 35 Kung Fu Students including female participants from Shaolin Kung Fu Wu Tang of Abuko.
"The weekend's programmes, which formed part of a series of similar examinations over the period, was purposely organised to recognise the most talented students in the Kung fu clubs countrywide," says the public relations officer of the Gambia Kung Fu Association, Ebou Sanyang, widely called Jetli.
The activity was also intended to upgrade the participants to the next stage or belt expected to help the association to produce good and talented black belts at the end of the training.
"The initiative is part of the association's effort to decentralize and sensitize kung fu across the country," he said.
The programme also gave the association the unique opportunity to examine the talents of students from various disciplines, such as loyalty, physical education, techniques and fighting system.
"Participants were awarded certificates by officials in a bid to promote the best students to another stage or belt in the next few weeks or so," officials said.
