The president of the Liberia Karate-do Federation (LKF) Master William Philip Anderson is poised to train at least 50 kids in martial arts in three counties, beginning with Grand Bassa.
He named Maryland and Montserrado as the remaining counties to introduce martial in the next six months.
He told the Daily Observer in an exclusive interview over the weekend in Buchanan that the program is his passion to develop professional karate athletes.
“For the past three weeks, every Saturday, I have been offering free training to interested kids from every part of Bassa at this court,” he said, “I intend to do the same in Maryland and Montserrado.”
He added: “Karate helps the practitioner to benefit physically and develops self discipline and for the kids.”
He promised to revamp the Black Belt Association, which comprises of amateur black belt holders from every aspect of martial arts, including karate, taekwondo, kick-boxing and wushu.
Master Anderson is Liberia’s retired 7-time Karate champion and Africa’s kick-boxing champion.
