Tirap district granted ASKA

Tirap district has been granted membership of Arunachal Shito-Ryu Karate-Do Association for the year 2013 by the head office situated at Chimpu, Itanagar. The ASKA is affiliated with All India Shito-Ryu Karate –Do Federation. Somgang Lowang has been appointed as the Branch Instructor for Tirap district ASKA.

This will facilitate the young Karatekas of the district to hone their skills and help them participate in tournaments held every year all over the world. There are many trained young boys and girls in Tirap but for want of proper forum and platform they could not utilize their acquired skill gainfully.

When asked about the introduction of ASKA in Tirap the Instructor Somgang Lowang said that to begin with it would be meant for women and girls only adding that these vulnerable sections needed to be taught the nuances of self defense. He also said that shortly ASKA for the boys would be introduced in the district.
