Umvoti Karate Academy stars in All Africa Championship

2018-07-18 06:00

KYOKUSHIN Karate Academy is an international and national registered karate academy, based in Greytown, and has done outstandingly well in the All Africa Championships, held last week in Cape Town.

The academy team is made up of 17 students and five technical team management members, which includes two parents, one media rep, a kit manager and head coach.

In a great honour to the academy and to Umvoti, the academy’s head coach, Sensei Sbonelo Mkhize, was nominated as the best coach in KwaZulu-Natal and in South Africa.

Halfway through the tournament last week, the team had already won three gold, two silver and one bronze medal to put the Umvoti Academy in the lead.

A detailed report on the academy’s achievements at the tournament will be published in next week’s Greytown Gazette.
