KARATE champion Sensei Adam Sneider has become the first black person to be appointed International Sports Organisation (ISO) national coordinator for Hando.

The former African Champion in Martial arts and former Zimbabwe representative to the World Sports federation is happy with the appointment.

“Well I feel honoured being recognised in the World as well as being the first black person to be recognized as a national coordinator for Hando Council.

“This means a lot and it shows my work is being recognized worldwide,” he said.


Sneider has participated in over 30 major martial arts tournaments in and outside Zimbabwe.

In June 22 2018, he was awarded the most spirited fighter at the World tournament which was held in Baku, Azerbaijan.

He has opened more than five dojos in different locations to develop the sport.

Meanwhile, Sneider is appealing for financial assistance to be able to travel to South Africa where he was invited for an International training seminar set for February 21-24.

Sneider is being provided with accommodation and meals by the organisers.

“You are cordially invited to participate in our International Training Seminar to be held in Cape Town, South Africa. The seminar will be conducted by our Africa Continental Director, 7th Dan Phillip Moustache from Seychelles and our Global Partnership Director from Philippines Shihan Steven Foo,” reads the invitational letter.
