A BUFFESDALE Secondary pupil, Karuna Eraman (14), received her black belt at the Shodan grading in Verulam last month.

Karuna trained for over eight hours a week under the mentorship and guidance of sensei Denzil Govender, president and head of International Karate Diagaku South Africa.

She was among 13 karatekas who attempted their first dan grading. She recommends karate for children as she believes it teaches discipline and concentration. “It is a lot of passion, hard work, long hours and dedication.” She will receive her certificate soon which will be sent from IKD head office in Canada. - Supplied.
