Major General MT Ibrahim added that even though the Novices Boxing was not a competitive event, the Cadets should see it as an opportunity to hone in their non-armed combat skills as such skill could come in handy when the die is cast.

The Commandant further advised officers and men, to at all times, see to it that they take their intellectual and physical development very seriously as these two attributes would determine their longevity and efficiency to their calling.
