50 Athletes in Abuja for 3rd Edition of CSSF
Speaking about the competition tagged ‘headmaster’, coordinator Ms Latifah Abdulwahab said the current edition would be particularly focus on targeting opponent’s head as only scoring point.
Abdulwahab stated that the essence was to develop Nigerian Taekwondo Athletes in using head kicks to garner high points whenever they face anyone on the floor.
She said 2019 series would feature four editions, with each of them witnessing different and peculiar fighting styles.
According to her, “Over the years, we have observed that Nigerian athletes find it difficult to score points by kicking the opponent’s head, this competition will help to make them learn how to garner points especially when they feature at any international competition.
“We decided to limit participation that is why we are expecting just about 50 athletes. We have very few seniors. our major focus is on kiddies and cadets. That’s where it all starts.”
Various Taekwondo clubs including defending champions Eagles tkd, Brickhall, Octagon, Perfecto, Talented Trios, Club champion Marshall art academy, Thelma, Kiddies, Bullet kick, among other tkds are also expected to feature their athletes.
