A dental college is the first educational institution to become affiliated with the Nigeria Taekwondo Federation (NTF).
The taekwondo club at Federal College of Dental Technology and Therapy, Enugu is run by head instructor John Shedrach.
There are now 14 clubs in six states affiliated with the NTF.
The affiliation programme was launched in December 2019 to give the NTF more visibility among the wider population.
NTF President Margaret Elizabeth Binga, secretary general Yusuf Kabir and technical director Chika Chukwumerije all signed an affiliation certificate.
Ondo State head coach Ada Anthony recently urged the NTF to work with universities to improve the development of student-athletes across the nation.
This in turn would benefit the national team, Anthony said.
The Federal College of Dental Technology and Therapy, Enugu offers dental technology, dental therapy and dental nursing.
