Taekwondo Cymru is pledging to raise awareness of paralympic taekwondo in Wales. Master Porl Stone has first hand experience training those with impairments; including Wales' only para taekwondo athlete, Abdul Shah.
Back in 2014, a very shy Abdul walked into the club not knowing what to expect. In less than 2 years he has not only strengthened his body but also his mind.
Abdul Shah has received interest from Great Britain Taekwondo following news that taekwondo will be in the Paralympics, Tokyo 2020. Master Porl Stone would like to offer more people in Wales this opportunity. He states,
"I don't believe that Abdul is the only potential paralympian in Wales. I am currently devising a campaign to ensure everybody in Wales is aware of the pathway we offer, Everybody deserves the chance."
