“Awarding certificates to the children is a way to let people know that Vicamen Academy, which is a karate fitness and music school, is committed to bringing out the best in the children.“The children took part in different practical trainings at the summer clinic to get the certificate. Our duty in the academy is to keep training parents in healthy life style and give children the adequate direction in their chosen skills,” he declared.
The parents and guardians who attended the event commended the organisers for putting up the training, assuring them that they would keep encouraging their children to take part in Karate and other sports.
