Kyorugi Taekwondo Championship – 2015
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) recently in its circular had asked all its affiliated schools to train girl students in self-defence. Stepping Stones Senior Secondary School on its own initiative had much earlier, laid emphasis on teaching self defence techniques to both boys and girls. In this context, Stepping Stones, organized its 2nd Open Tricity Inter-School Sub Junior / Cadet / Boys and Girls Kyorugi Taekwondo Championship – 2015 in the School premises.
The championship was conducted for age groups under 12 and 14 years of age. Mr. Narendra Kumar, the director of the School inaugurated the championship, and speaking on the occasion said that teaching girl students to defend themselves is a useful means to empower them, and inclusion of self-defence training for girls is highly desirable. “These strategies cultivate in individuals the ability to remain alert yet calm at all times. Therefore, self-defence training will assist not only the girls but also the boys to become more aware of their surroundings and be ready for any situation”.
Students of various private and government Schools participated and made the event a great success.
