Leader of Government Business in the Senate Samuel Poghisio has suggested that Members of Parliament should be taught the basics of Unified Martial Arts (Tong-iL Moo-Do).
Poghisio was speaking during the closing ceremony of the Mombasa Open Tong-iL Moo-Do International Championship on Monday.
"I'm impressed by the growth of the sport in Kenya. It has placed the country on the World map," Poghisio said via Video Conference address to the participants from the 10 countries.
"Seeing how the sport has given my two children a bigger outlook and approach to life, I must admit it is the sport to embrace.
"The Tong-iL Moo-Do Association of Kenya should consider training Members of Parliament on the basic skills and the philosophy of the game."
