“In this regard, it is our tough task as new administrators. For referees currently, we already have 11 people with details of 4 people at national level and 7 people at regional level.”

“Meanwhile, we only have 6 trainers, therefore we still need central assistance to develop the number of trainers,” explained Hermansyah.

Hermansyah continued to reveal that the number of Wadokai Karate-Do members in South Sumatra is 1200 people with achievements made by 9 people who have repeatedly won provincial and national championships.

“Through the vision and mission of the new management of Wadokai Karate-Do Indonesia South Sumatra, we will produce karate athletes not only at the provincial and national level, but also at the international level,” he explained.

Finally, he added that there are currently 28 Dojos in South Sumatra. Regarding the number of Dojos, in the future it will be the task of the new management to increase and develop Dojos in South Sumatra.

“In the future we will increase the number of Dojos in South Sumatra, one of which is collaborating with schools in Palembang,” he concluded. (ojn/ril)
