Just over three months prior to T&T s first
ever hosting of the North American Federation
of Martial Arts (Nafma) World Championships,
at Hyatt Recency, Wrightson Road, the same
venue will accommodate a coach/referees martial
arts seminar, from 10 am today.
Today's first event, the coaches and referees
certification, will run until midday, followed by
a workshop in the arts of tang soo do (Korean
Karate) and chi kung, which will run from 2-4
Registration for both events are US$20. Heading
the seminars are Nafma's executive director Master
Jose Torres, along with one of T&T's most traveled
instructors Sifu Rahman Khabir.
The workshop, which has already been con-
ducted in several other countries in the region, is
being held in preparation for the highly anticipated
World Championships from November 8-9, which
T&T will host for first time after consistently
impressing at previous events.
As recently as in 2011, when the last biennial
competition was staged, T&T as a team emerged
with a bronze medal.
The World Championships is a competition
which is open to various disciplines including,
weapons, forms, point sparring and stick fighting.
This year, 1,000 competitors, coaches and spec-
tators are expected to attend from ten selected
Olympic-style gold, silver and bronze medals
will be awarded to the first to third placed fin-
KINGSTON---The Jamaican government says it
has not ruled out the possibility of establishing
an internationally accredited anti-doping labo-
ratory in the country.
However, Minister with responsibility for Sport,
Natalie Neita Headley, says setting up such an
institution will require substantial capital invest-
ment and support from other countries.
The sports minister was addressing a Jamaica
Information Service Think Tank which considered
a laboratory to test athletes for all the substances
on the World Anti-Doping Agency's (WADA)
banned list, as well as supplements marketed to
"It is a matter as to whether or not Jamaica
would be able to find that additional capital (and),
to convince the rest of the world that we have all
the requirements for them to send their tests to
Jamaica," she stated.
"Unless significant support is given to Jamaica
as a location, to satisfy the needs of several coun-
tries, the country cannot sustain a laboratory of
that nature. However, it is not something we have
written off as impossible".
Doping in sports has become a hot topic here
after five Jamaicans, including former 100m world-
record holder Asafa Powell and Sherone Simpson,
the 2008 Beijing Olympics 100m silver medallist,
tested positive for banned substances.
President of the Jamaica Athletics Administrative
Association, Dr Warren Blake, says meeting the
required international standards for the lab, would
require major spending.
"The level of capital outlay is very deep. The
laboratory should be able to test substances both
known and unknown," Dr Blake stressed.
"In order to buy the right spectrometers and
put the right tests in place to detect unknown
substances, you must be able to spend". (CMC)
