Karate South Africa held selections for the national Protea team over the weekend of 15 and 16 January, where KPC was represented by six athletes as part of the KSA squad.
The weekend was a huge highlight and success for KPC athletes. All six athletes, Elmien Viljoen, Ethan Brazelle, Hardus van Jaarsveld, Isabel Esterhuizen, Pieter Jordaan and Thirq du Preez, qualified for their Protea colours!
Our champs will now represent not only Solis Ortus and KPC, but also South Africa at the Region South Championships, which include all southern African countries, from 27 to 29 May 2022!
As a super proud sensei Eugene said on the day, “Congrats. Hard work, dedication and commitment paid off!”
But he is not the only one who is super proud. Our KPC parents also had their say about our stars. Some words from them:
“I’m bursting with pride.”
“Thank you Eugene for what you put in.”
“Thank you Eugene for your patience.”
Well done everyone – keep the Solis Ortus and KPC names high!
Good luck for May!
