Amid triumphant performance of Cuppa Schoola Delhi NCR in August, The Indian Professional Karate Council (IPKC) is going to launch Cuppa Karate Meet across the nation.
With an objective of promulgating Karate into the mainstream sports, IPKC mulls to set Cuppa Schoola by incorporating karate training and competition at several at primary schools across the nation.
CuppaSchoola is one of its kinds of program developed by the IPKC that train school-going student across India and boost up their confidence to transform from an amateur to a professional karate kid with a scholarship of rupees 25 lakh.
While commenting on the development program, Sensei Rajeev Sinha, Chairman, IPKC said, “Karate is a very different sport because the mind trains to respond without prejudice and without pre-judgment, and responds instantly.
“This is why children are suggested to go under a training program in the school to understand the capacity of the brain and become more creative.
“This has been our motive behind Cuppaschoola – to drive the children, to make them hungry, not to win but to outperform. One should explore the horizons and should not confine to the boundaries. Cuppaschoola across the nation will also give a chance to amateurs to transform into professionals and make our country proud in international competitions,” he added.
The IPKC has also planned the Ultimate Karate League (UKL) for the promotion of professional karate.
