Tempo Interactive reports that the organizers of an international Kempo championship scheduled to be held in Bali July 25-26, 2009, have reluctantly cancelled that event following the Jakarta terrorist attacks which claimed the lives of 9 and injured more than 54 people.
The Head of the local organizing committee, Timbul Thomas Lubus, confirmed that some 400 athletes from 20 countries has been expected to travel to Bali to participate in the event.
Many of the participants were already in Bali when the decision was made to cancel the sporting event, causing the Indonesian Kempo Association to put together friendly sparring matches and training sessions for the athletes already in Bali.
