JARE Lalakai is hoping to take the martial art hapkido in the country to a new heights this season.

After conducting several classes last year at the YMCA Hall in Suva, the hapkido instructor wants to further spread the gospel outside of Suva.

And his first mission is to conduct classes in Labasa.

"I'm from Macuata in Vanua Levu and I want to teach the people there hapkido," he said.

"It is a sport that moulds the discipline of individuals. It will be very useful to the people in Labasa, it will not only help build their self-esteem but build their character."

Lalakai said he was happy with the outcome of the courses held in Suva last year.

"I've been conducting hapkido classes in Suva. A lot of people turn up at my classes and this year I will want to branch out to Labasa.

"I will have instructors available for Suva classes while I go to Labasa to set up classes there."

Lalakai said classes would continue every Tuesday at the YMCA Hall.

"From next week, we will begin our classes, so I am urging whoever is interested to come to the YMCA on Tuesday afternoons."

Classes begin at 6.30pm.
