The Guyana International Kyokushinkai Martial Arts Academy (GIKMAA) extend an open welcome to the general public to participate in their annual Health and Fitness Walk, which takes place this Sunday from the Parade Ground on Middle Street. The purpose of the walk is to raise awareness for a healthy lifestyle and well-being.
Persons participating are asked to assemble at 5:30 am, as the walk will commence at 6:00am. The route for the walk would be as follows: starting from Parade Ground onto Church Street, around Vlissengen Road, then to Lamaha Street, and return to the ground.
After the walk, there will be many forms of workouts by various groups, such as self defence displays by senior instructors. There will also be special addresses from special invitees.
In their most recent feat, the club participated in the Kyokushinkai Martial Arts Academy’s Sixth Open International Martial Arts Championships on September 23, 2018 and walked away with 36 medals – 18 golds, 12 silvers and six bronzes. In total, for the year 2018, the GIKMAA has accumulated 43 gold, 24 silver, and 9 bronze medals, along with 21 ‘hall of fame’ awards.
The GIKMAA have invited numerous talented professionals and distinguished organisations to participate in this event, as they aim to link young people with elders in an array of specialised areas in an attempt to motivate and inspire Guyanese from all walks of life to work together, encourage collaboration in the spirit of unity and social cohesion, and to raise awareness of health and well-being nationwide.
