Highlights – 2010

26 Mar

The 2010 year ended on several positive notes for the Dukas karate Institute.

During August 2010 Ewald Van Zyl made us very proud by winning a Bronze Medal for Kumite at the KSA South African Cadet and Junior Championships held in Port Elizabeth. Congratulations to Ewald.

In September 2010, members of the Vanderbijlpark and Vereeniging dojos received their Gauteng South Provincial Colours when they competed in the KSA Childrens Championships held in Pretoria. Well done to Marike Stols, Wenette Jordaan, Tanja Stevenson, Justin Van Jaarsveld, Jared Edson, Tristan Basel, Liam Alyward, Sithembiso Madondo, Daniel Nunes and Bradley McCleod.

The Provincial Championship that was held at the Olympians was very well organized and all the invited dojos enjoyed it very much. Well done to the Gauteng South Committee for organizing and staging the event.

A Black Belt Grading was held in Johannesburg on 9th October. Congratulations to Sensei Bryan Dukas for achieving his Go Dan (5th Dan); Jean-Pierre Van Niekerk, Thomas Van Niekerk, Marten Van Wyk on their Sho Dan (1st Dan); together with young Werner Pretorius and Mieke Van der Merwe on their national Black Belts.
