Shotocup Japan 2014

On 9 October 2014 the Senior South African Team departed for Japan to attend the 2014 Shoto World Cup. We were going to the birth place of our beloved sport and we were going to compete against the best of the best that JKA karate has to offer worldwide.
From our dojo, Sensei Eugene Oosthuizen competed in the team kumite event and the individual kumite. Sandra Erasmus competed in the kata and kumite event and Wasim Ghoor competed in the kata and kumite event.

We are so very proud of all the athletes who represented South Africa in Japan.










Breast Cancer Month

October was breast cancer awareness month and this year we started the pink belt initiative. For every pink belt sold we donated R10 to CANSA.
News of the pink belts quickly spread to other dojos and a batch pink belts were sent to a dojo in Kimberley who also supported this drive.
Thank you to all who purchased a pink belt to help with the donation towards CANSA. Everybody (boys and girls, men and women) looked smashing in their pink belts. Now we can put our pink belts away until next year October.
