Martial arts building kicks doors open in Kien Svay district

The new Building of Martial Arts opened yesterday morning in Kandal province’s Kien Svay district.

Construction over the past three years has incurred costs of nearly $80,000, with financing coming from many sponsors, including the Police Academy of Cambodia and Japanese business consulting company KHR & AAP International.

The facility will be used by various martial art clubs and associations, as well as for the police academy to pick up new self-defence skills.

At yesterday’s opening ceremony, Em Sam An, General Secretary of the Ministry of Interior, said: “[I give] praise to General Ma Chhoeun [President of the police academy] and all sponsors who made the Building of Martial Arts possible.

''It will strengthen the police’s physicality to secure the public’s safety. The martial art training will not only enforce the physical body, but also give the police new ideas.”
