PIETERMARITZBURG’s Siphokazi Cele and Limpho Motlanyane, from the Renshuden Judo Club, took part in an international training camp that was held on the South Coast over a period of two weeks.

Trained by Siobhan Esterhuysen, Siphokazi and Limpho were among 10 students from the Renshuden Judo Club who were selected to take part in the international training camp.

Esterhuysen said the camp, held in Mthunzi, also saw the attendance of a judo team from Swaziland.

“Over the two weeks, the students learned various new techniques, did a lot of tachiwaza randori [standing fighting], as well as fighting from the knees,” said Esterhuysen.

Esterhuysen said both Limpho and Siphokazi agreed that the training camp was very hard. “However they said that it was all worth it at the end of the day. Both judo players felt that they are much stronger now and have improved their knowledge about judo.”

Concluding, Esterhuysen said the training will help them with preparation for next year’s South African Open Judo Championships, where both of them are aiming to receive gold. — Supplied.
