ASK Supports TKO Project

ASK Competition Results, Public Interest posted by ASK Admin

The ASK was very pleased to be involved at the launch of the Metropolitan Police Service's TKO Project, a programme aimed at using Martial Arts as a tool to target young people at risk of exclusion and anti-social behaviour within the London boroughs and surrounding disadvantaged areas.

Team TKO, whose slogan is “Technique, Knowledge and Opportunity”, is an innovative and exciting youth engagement initiative aimed at encouraging young people to get to know their local officers, learn about martial arts and enhance their levels of fitness and discipline. As well as a demostration of Karate-Do by the ASK's Paul Herbert, Sasha Larner and Mark Raven, guests were also treated to displays of Judo, Tae Kwon Do, Boxing and Mixed Martial Arts.

The event was supported by two times World Heavyweight Boxing Champion “Terrible” Tim Witherspoon and London Assembly Member James Cleverley. To find out more about the TKO Programme, please contact PC Terry Fearn via terry.fearn@met.police.uk
