St. Barnabas Basic School at Osu is the first to benefit from the training. The School also has been given the privilege to demonstrate the tactics learnt so far at the parade grounds on 6th March when Ghana celebrates its independence anniversary.
So far, ten (10) instructors are on board training the children. According to them, they have successfully taught the pupils the basic moves, self defence and breaking skills of the sport.
The President of the Association, Mr. Annoh-Quarshie stated that, Taekwondo is a sport that instills discipline, boosts self control and develops the mental horizon of a person and not meant for heckling colleagues.
The Chief Sports Development Officer (CSDO) of the National Sports Council disclosed that, plans are advanced to spread the game throughout Ghana. He also commended the Association for their efforts because since 1997, no Independence Day demonstration has taken place.
