The main event was followed by a one day teakwondo training session conducted for Jaffna students by Sri Lanka Army and Korean instructors at the same venue. Nearly 300 school boys and girls attended the programme organized by the Sri Lanka Army Teakwondo Association with guidance of its chairman and also vice chairman of National Taekwondo Association Brigadier B.C.J.A.F. Rodrigo.

Army teakwondo players had earlier been conducting training sessions for Jaffna youths and school children at Durayappah stadium.

A Teakwondo Club for Jaffna youths will be started by the Army in near future.
