The President of the Brazilian Police Sports Federation Police Captain Marcelo Rezende has recently been broadcasted on Brazilian National television, where he gave a full explanation and examples of his project Pegasus, supported by the USIP.
Project Pegasus provides people with special needs a positive support and direction in their lives.The video below shows how people with a disability overcome difficulties by the use of Taekwondo. It’s impressive to see how people can improve their life by the use of this combat and self-defence sport. It all started in 2006, when Marcelo Rezende wrote his idea down about Project Pegasus. The command of the Police noticed his idea, and found it a very good initiative, with an excellent purpose. It’s been seven years later now, and the project has supported around ninety students so far!
