Moses Golola, Uganda’s kickboxing star has launched a campaign in Rakai district aimed at popularizing the sport and reviving collapsed Kyotera kickboxing club.
At the weekend, Golola visited schools including Christ the King Secondary school Bulinda in Kalisizo and launched the campaign for schools to start kickboxing.
Christ the King Secondary school for the first time started a kickboxing team.
The team currently with ten members hopes to professionalize and popularize the sport at the school to international level.
Moses Golola, the Ugandan Kickboxing star says he decided to start taking the sport upcountry to interest more Ugandans especially youths and students.
He explains that he realized that Ugandans were not taking kickboxing seriously yet it can be a bread winner for many.
Golola also says he is ready to provide facilities such as boxing gloves and temporally ring to Kyotera kickboxing club to revive it. He also said he plans to put up a kickboxing academy to help make the sport more professional.
Patricia Namwanje Kintu, the head prefect of Christ the King Secondary school Bulinda says they are happy with the launch of the kick boxing team. She says they have many students who would love joining kickboxing but they lacked inspiration.
Namwanje says the launch of the kickboxing team at their school will boost their talents and promote security. She explains that they hope the kickboxing skills will help them fight potential defilers and rapists.
Ismail Mwanje, the manager of Kyotera kick boxing club says their club collapsed because they did not have direction and trainers. He explains that many people who had joined the club lost interest and in 1990s, it closed down.
Mwanje notes that they did not have kickboxing kits and ring. He however says with Golola and MP Haruna Kasolo’s help, they have started registering new people.
MP Haruna Kasolo oof Kyotera says he has set aside some money to help boost kickboxing. He has also asked Government to reconstruct Kyotera play ground and fit in facilities including kickboxing ring.
According to Kasolo, many unemployed youths can earn a living from sports such as kick boxing and football.
