The past month Solis Ortus set the bar high in participating at Tournaments all over Gauteng. We want to congratulate each participant who competed. Many karatekas experienced competing for the first time. Welcome and well done.
Always remember what they say: “The biggest competition is myself. I am not looking to follow others or pull them down. I’m planning to test my own boundaries.”
For some competing is to win, for others it is a social event and then, for a few it is to improve themselves; either personally or in the sport itself. Gianni Versace said: “It is nice to have valid competition; it pushes you to do better.”
Solis Ortus is a great competitor and also a great achiever. We won 57 medals in 3 Tournaments.
First we had the 25th Eagles Challenge. It was a great friendly tournament to help introduce new competitors to give them a taste of how it feels to compete. We are proud to say that Solis Ortus did extremely well at the tournament and out of the 17 competitors we received 17 medals in total. We want to congratulate everyone who competed.
We are proud to say that Solis Ortus set the bar high at the Tshwane Trials. Twenty karatekas competed and brought back 22 medals. We want to congratulate everyone who competed and those who succeeded through to the GKF Trials.
Solis Ortus sent 5 karatekas to compete in the KSA Children Nationals in Durban; 7 – 17 years old. We wish all the kids the best of luck. Just do your best and know that we are proud of each and every one of you.
We also want to congratulate and wish the KSA U21/Seniors and Veterans; 18 years and older; the best of luck competing in Cape Town.
One way JKA, JKA one way.
Our students train and work very hard as a result for their love of karate. Their dedication pays off when they compete and it is evident by the amount of medals and trophies Solis Ortus students take home at the various tournaments.
Solis Ortus students also know that if you put in the time and effort, we as instructors will put in equal amount of time and effort in assisting them to become top competing athletes!
We train hard, we compete hard, sometimes we fall hard, but we always get up and share in each other’s victories.
NEVER GIVE UP!
