A project benefiting a very special young man from Maputo, Mozambique named Fenias Claudio. Fenias is one of the very few who has achieved a ITF Taekwon-Do 2nd Dan black belt with one leg after re-engineering the techniques to accommodate his disability.
This project will help in raising the much needed funds to acquire a custom-made prosthetic leg.
Fenias has relied on crutches to date as the prospect of a prosthetic leg has been beyond his reach.
This initiative was started after Brannon & Jaren Phillips (both senior ITF Instructors and 6th Dan black belts) traveled to Mozambique in 2014 and since, have been trying to help Fenias to get a prosthetic leg sponsored. Being declined by several health organization and after a 18 month global canvas, in the latter of 2016 it was decided that a crowd sourcing campaign was a worthy consideration. With both Jaren and Brannon as the incumbent ITFSA President and Senior Vice President, it was agreed by the ITFSA Executive Committee that all funds received will be collected and managed through the ITFSA on behalf of Fenias.
The aim of the ITFSA is to improve technical standards and the growth of Original ITF Taekwon-Do in South Africa. The International Taekwon-Do Federation South Africa (ITFSA) is a Non Profit Company duly registered in terms of the Companies Act, 2008, registration number NPC 2013/178596/08.
We thank you for your consideration and generosity should you choose to support this cause for Fenias.
