Mike Sensei and Marius Sensei together with a group of Dukas Karate Institute members attended the annual "Berg Gasshuku" held in the beautiful Drakensburg Mountains during February 2013.
The 1st WSKF SOUTH AFRICAN National Seminar held from 24th – 26th February 2012 proved to be a resounding success!!!
The location was the beautiful Cape West Coast – a great venue within the West Coast National Park.
Special thanks to Jan Marx Sensei for organizing the amazing venue and all the delicious food etc.
The Seminar was very well supported, with members from all the areas attending.
Everyone agreed that this event should be an annual event – the venue will vary to give other areas a chance to be the host area.
Mike Sensei explained that this Seminar concentrated on standardization of the WSKF Syllabus.
Due to the fact that the Langebaan Dojo was the host area, all members from that area were invited to attend the Seminar on Saturday.
This would give them the opportunity of training with the top Instructors and with the Black Belts from other areas.
There was a great spirit of camaraderie and friendship among the karateka from all areas, resulting in fun socializing after all the hard training.
Dukas Karate Institute Members achieve medals at the Commonwealth Karate Championships in Australia.
Elandi van Niekerk represented South Africa and achieved a bronze medal for kumite.
Other members who also represented South Africa at this event are:
Brandon Shepherd and Ewald van Zyl.
We are very proud of these achievements.
