ATENEO To Make Taekwondo Part Of Its Mandatory Curriculum

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – After receiving flak for the bullying incident involving one of its junior high school students, Ateneo de Manila University announced today that beginning next school year, it will be adding Taekwondo as a required curriculum for students in all levels.

The Ateneo bully who threatened (mis)dignity or physical injury to a fellow student, is a Takewondo practitioner.

In reaching its decision, the Ateneo Board of Directors said that had the bullied student been also a Takewondo practitioner, then the incident would not have been an issue.  The bathroom encounter would have been fair and square.

Already, the Taekwondo Association of the Philippines as well as Ateneo alumnus NoyNoy Aquino (yes, the ex-Philippine President) are praising the university for its courageous decision.
