I will be sharing with you on the performance of Pencak Silat, Taekwando, Karatedo and Wushu during the closing ceremony which was held at the National Indoor Stadium of the Hassanal Bolkiah National Sports Complex in Berakas on 20th June 2009. The martial art shows are performed by the various schemes of the Department of Youth and Sports.
The festival was then officially declared closed by the guest of honour, Dato Paduka Hj Jemat Hj Ampal, Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports, who also handed out the prizes to the winners.
While on my way to watch the closing ceremony, I captured this moment of a wushu practitioner doing their basic rountine warming up. Yes, that his leg Don't try this at home 🙂
