The Liberia Karate Federation LKF, under the leadership of President John Horace has announced the reopening of karate schools.
Karate schools were shut down following announcement made by the Ministry of Youth and Sports to close all sporting activities in the wake of the Ebola fight.
Technical Director Virgile Segbeya named the schools as Yang-Lee, Ogu Temple, Go-You –Lee, Keing-Go-Tan, and Yang-Lee located on Michelin Street.
He said regular training is in progress and it is scheduled only on Sundays until the Ebola virus disease is out of the country.
Segbeya explained that karate is contact sport and as a result the sport will be in full swing when Ebola is declared not in Liberia.
Meanwhile President Horace has called on all karate athletes in the country, including their masters to keep courage and train harder to keep fit.
He also called on all Ruling Counsels of the federation to come together and make it next to none in the country.
