SA JKA National Championships - 5 & 6 June 2015 - Ellis Park Indoor Events Arena (Johannesburg)

This year's tournament was historical in that for the first time divisions for "Special Needs" karate-ka were included. Well done to the following karate-ka who participated in the "Special Needs" divisions: Martin Louw (11 years Blue belt) - Northern KZN, Brandon Muller (11 years Green belt) - Karate Unlimited, Evan Bohmer (12 years Green belt) - Northern KZN, Ryan McConnachie (Senior Black belt) - Western Province JKA, Bianca Janse Van Rensburg (Senior Brown belt) - Horizon Karate Centre, and James Van Zyl (18 years Blue belt) - Solis Ortus.

We look forward to greater participation in these events in the future and it goes to show that karate really is for everyone.

The standard in the "Novice" divisions (white to red belts) on the Friday was very good and the future of SA JKA karate looks bright.

Saturday was the "Elite" divisions (brown and black belts), as well as selections for the JKA AFRICA CUP to be held in Johannesburg on 26 September.

The large number of competitors in the men's Veterans divisions bears testament to the strength and experience that SA JKA has as an organisation.

Congratulations to our Open Black Belt winners: Men's kata - Gareth Crowe, Ladies Kata and kumite - Elsabe Le Roux, Men's kumite - Sandile Makwali.

The full set of results from both days can be viewed under the "Tournament tab". Well done to all the competitors, referees and judges, table officials and the organising committee under Sensei Les Stevens.
