The Kick-boxing Federation of Nigeria (KBFN) has concluded plans to organise a training workshop for technical instructors in order to reduce the risks associated with the sport, perceived by many as dangerous and life-threatening.
The President of KBFN, Mykel Eneduwa, while speaking with Sports Vanguard at the National Stadium in Lagos, said that tight measures were going to be applied on those engaged in the game
Eneduwa, while pointing out that any accident experienced in the past does not justify claims that the sport is dangerous, argued that no sporting activity is without its own fair share of dangers.
He noted that in order to avert life-threatening injuries in the future, that the federation had finalised plans to organise a training workshop for technical instructors.
, who he said, would at the end of the programme, be mandated to transfer their knowledge to kick-boxers, who are under their watch.
The KBFN boss said that the training workshop would hold next month in Lagos.
â€œWe have put in place measures that would reduce the risks associated with this sport because in as much as we discountenance insinuations by some people that our sport is risky, we on our own part, are taking the bull by the horns by training instructors, who in turn, would now train their wards on what and what not to do when in the ring, in order to make the game safe for allâ€, said Eneduwa
