African1s kickboxing champion Kanda Kabongo plans to train in Nairobi for an undisclosed duration before flying to Japan for the World championship mid this year.
Kabongo’s organiser Japhet Kaseba said the newly crowned kickboxing champ would be joined by the East and Central African women kickboxing title holder Pendo Njau during the training stint.
Kaseba said the kickboxing duo would also train in Thailand enroute to Japan in a bid to shape up their game.
Kaseba, a veteran in kickboxing having dominated the sport for several years in the past, says he intends to expose the kickboxing duo before competent opponents.
Besides his plans for the kickboxing athletes, Kaseba is also soliciting sponsorship from individuals and corporate bodies to facilitate the smooth running of the preparations.
Kabongo came into limelight early this month when he floored Ugandan Moses Golola during the continental K-One final staged in Dar es Salaam.
Kaseba is also seeking funds to assist the preparations for national kickboxing league scheduled for March in Dar es Salaam.
