A local karate school from Hanover Park walked away with 12 trophies at the Dave Bristow Memorial Tournament on Saturday. The karate tournament held in Edgemead saw several schools compete in full-contact karate style for the annual championship title. “It’s very exciting to see my students on the floor doing what they were taught. More so when they stand on the podium battered and bruised receiving their trophies,” says Sensei Deen Daniels from Shinkyokushin Karate.

“We entered 18 students in the fighting tournament and walked away with several awards. My grandson Sameer Daniels was one of many students who did us proud and won his third first place trophy for the year. He won his first two fights by knocking down both opponents with his Jordan Mawashi-geri round house kicks to the head and send the crowed into a frenzy when he narrowly held on to win his third and final bout in his division,” explains Daniels.

Daniels says new students – who include Yushra Isaacs, Dana Dickens and Charna Pistorius – were amongst many that did exceptionally well. “These girls finished as runner-ups in their respective divisions. Fayyaad Regal, Aashiqah Abdulla and Carlen Brooks also represented the club on senior black belt level and won the categories for boy’s u.15 heavy weights, girls u.17 light weight and women under 55kgs,” he adds.

The club is set to compete in the 49th All Japan open weight full contact karate tournament taking place in Tokyo this October. “Five Hanover Park students will represent Shinkyokushin Karate for the first time ever at the prestigious event. Our aim is simple we want to make them world champions. We want to grab every opportunity to take them abroad to compete internationally and to show them the world. It also gives them the opportunity to exchange with people from all walks of life. Apart from that, karate teaches kids discipline and keeps them active,” he concludes.
