“I feel very much happy to have achieved to have won this bronze medal for our nation in Zimbabwe during this Covid 19 pandemic. Many countries have actually embraced the idea of virtual competitions so as Zimbabwe we said we should not be left out. We have managed to compete with the rest of the world in this martial arts Kobudo which mainly focused on the martial arts weapons,” said Mashaya.
The tournament was tough and competitive as it was meant for high grades namely Brown and Black Belts only around the World.
Despite lack of resources and funds, Zim Ninja Academy, powered by Mashaya managed to overcome obstacles to fly the nation’s flag high.
The Academy is doing well with minimum funding from the Director’s pocket and has introduced a fairly new discipline in the Martial Arts Weapons, Kobudo which is set to bring excitement to the dueling feats.
