Boland Amateur Shukokai Karate Association40 of our students have qualified for the South African KSI team to go to the Karate World Championships in Stockholm in 2018. They have done so by placing either first or second at the 2017 national championships held in October. BASKA first sent a team to the karate world championships in the 1990’s. Since then we have competed in many world championships, have produced dozens of world champions and brought home hundreds of medals. And it’s not just the medals, we are changing lives. Not only have we taught hundreds of students the values of respect and self-discipline, we have taught them to believe in themselves and shown them that through hard work, self belief and perseverance they can achieve their dreams.To be able to do us proud, the team will need to carry on training at least three times a week, compete in all the development tournaments available, attend the training camps and keep learning from our experienced Senseis. As well as this, the team will need to raise the finances to fund the trip. Our goal is to assist those members of the team who are financially disadvantaged to realise their dreams and represent South Africa at the world championshipsin July.
Great Karate Family. Wish you all the best!!
