New taekwondo center to finally kick open its doors

Cambodia’s first taekwondo facility, the Booyoung Khmer Taekwondo Center, will be officially opened this Friday after six years of construction.

Permanent Deputy Prime Ministry Men Sam An is expected to preside over the ceremony.

Beside offices and a meeting room, the center features two large practice rooms for men and women, especially those on the national team.

The building cost a reported US$450,000 while most training equipment has been donated by affiliates in South Korea.

Authorities have yet to confirm whether the electricity and water will be connected in time for the inauguration ceremony.
