The sun is rising to mark the start of the SA JKA Nationals 2015. Hope you are all dressed warmly and ready for action. Good luck and have fun!!!
This is the message our Sensei sent the Team early on Friday morning. What a tournament. Solis Ortus did us proud with 49 medals out of 59 competitors. Some of us had a good day and some had a fantastic learning curve.Always remember “never a failure always a lesson”. If you improved in the tournament you have won!
Friday went smoothly, and the coloured belts did extremely well. SO brought home 36 medals! Well done to all the karatekas!
Saturday was another ball game. We did African Cup trials inbetween which resulted in a very long day. The groups were very big per floor and the competion of a very high standard. Many karatekas qualified for the African Cup and SO congratulates everyone who is in the team. Well done!
After a successful tournament we retired very late and with exhausting bodies to yet celebrate a successful SA JKA 2015.
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!

We are proud of all the various divisions, from our junior belts to our senior belts, from the young ones to the older ones. Everybody did their best and demonstrated both good attitudes as well as good spirit.
