Full of joy for a successful competition season
Established in 2014, the DTU Karate Club has attracted a large number of students sharing a love of this exciting sport, including some very young members who train very hard every Monday, Wednesday and Friday night, under the guidance of head coach Tran Duong Tien, a DTU class K-20 alumnus, with a third dan from the Danang Karate Federation, a third dan from Nghia Dung Karate Vietnam, and one national third dan, assisted by the club president, Cao Nguyen Sy Tien, with a second dan from Nghia Dung Karate Vietnam.
“The DTU Karate Club is a favorite, not only among DTU students but also with many young people of Danang, especially those from 9 to 17 years old,” said head coach Tien.
“During training and tournaments, many members of the club, of all ages, show outstanding talent and improvement day by day. Many of them have been chosen to represent Danang at the Nghia Dung Karate world tournament, which is held every four years and will take place in Hue in July 2023. “During this summer break, we’re delighted to receive a large number of young children for training. We hope that their experience at the club will prove healthy and motivate their interest in martial arts.”
