Manila, Philippines-The Philippine Taekwondo Association (PTA) said that there is as yet another opportunity for the understudy of Ateneo who was gotten in a video t0rm*nting a classmate, in the event that he demonstrates regret for what he did.
“If he shows remorse and undergoes rehabilitation, the PTA will welcome him back,” PTA president Robert Aventajado said
“It’s all about giving this young Taekwondo practitioner a second chance. But he must show remorse,” Aventajado added
The Taekwondo affiliation had allegedly directed its very own examination on the ongoing occurrence of t0rm*nting including their professional who was gotten in a viral video. In addition, Aventajado said that specially appointed board of trustees of PTA has chosen to put the middle school understudy under inconclusive prohibition on all taekwondo related occasions in the nation.
“This means he is barred from competing or joining any PTA-sanctioned event,” he said
“It is effective immediately,” said Aventajado.
However, the PTA reiterated that it is open to reconciliation as it called on the public to be “mindful of their comments particularly on social media, bearing in mind that the subjects are minors.”
“We are recommending the student undergo rehabilitation with organizations equipped to handle his counseling,” it said in an official statement.
“The PTA on its part will endeavor to lend support through its Taekwondo education and training programs. The aim for this is to allow the individual to own responsibility for his actions, show remorse and contribute positively to the community,” it added.
Aventajado said that it will be up to the student now and his family to decide.
