PAN CARIBBEAN MARTIAL ARTS TOURNAMENT 2018 READY TO GO, CYNTHIA ROTHROCK LANDS TONIGHT
Over 100 divisions and almost 250 contestants from different parts of the Caribbean plus Cynthia “Lady Dragon” Rothrock (as you read this, she not long touched down to our shores) will make Barbados never the same again this weekend…
Speaking with reporters at the Island Inn hotel on Aquatic Gap was Dr Kevin Huffard who emphasised while the event is based on conflict and competing this is only in the ring, outside of the Tournament every man must to do their duty for all humanity in or out of the Caribbean; –
Meanwhile, President of the World Karate Union – Trevor Tacitano – explained it won’t be trophies like other contests, this will be unique for the region; –
He taught US combat troops Jiu-Jitsu in 1991 during the first Gulf War, among many other achievements, and he said he wants to start planning ahead to make next year’s tournament a better procedure for everyone; –
Professor Christopher Francis is the originator of this concept, it was he who brought Michael Jai White to Trinidad in 2010, says he plans to have both Michael and Wesley Snipes here for 2019, but he wants the Tournament not to look at fighting alone – much the same way Samurai warriors also were taught poetry and calligraphy as well as gardening in order to ensure their skills are well rounded; –
Tickets are $20 each for Adults and $15 each for Children and can be bought at Mobile King in Fontabelle near the traffic lights as well as Cell Hut in Mall 34 on Broad Street in the City.
It starts this Sunday from 9:00 am until 7:00 pm – proud participants include Ozone Wireless, Cell Hut, Bajan Pure Filtered Water, Mobile King, Barbados Steel Works Ltd, Prosales Barbados, Ocean Fisheries Ltd, Republic Bank Barbados, BajanReporter.com and CITA Radio 90.1 FM whose Apple and Android apps are now available at their site, citaradio.com!
