Moussa Mamane, the Technical Director of The Gambia Kung-Fu Association along with other colleagues from different Kung-Fu federations across Africa are expected to travel to Guinea Bissau on 16th May, to attend a weeklong cross referee training course on Kung-Fu, Pointsport has gathered.
The training programme, which is aimed at presenting Kung-Fu participants with the unique opportunity to be fully equipped in a bid to be exposed to higher standards, according to Mamane, is expected to commence on 17th May in Bissau.
The course, which is also expected to equip participants on the ethics of Kung-Fu, among other important areas, Mamane added, will go a long way towards exposing them to higher standards in preparation for future continental competitions.
One man, who is also looking set to represent his home land Senegal is Nazair Badian.
Badian, who is also the head of regional master of Senegal, Gambia and Guinea Bissau Kung-Fu associations said their mission to Bissau is to take part in the high-level Kung-Fu training. He is however optimistic that the event, which promises to produce a big Kung-Fu demonstration would be successfully completed.
Badian, who was born in Senegal, further promised to share his experience with the young ones back home.
