Four members of a local martial arts club recently participated in the African Tang Soo Do Championship and won big at the competition.

Cape Town Tang Soo Academy instructor Evandro Schwalbach and three of his students, Wendy Parry, Eugene Schrickker and Yogan Schrickker, took part in the competition for their chosen style of a Korean martial art in Maputo, Mozambique at the end of September.

Over 150 competitors from five African countries competed.

The Cape Town team won a second place trophy in creativity for their opening demonstration and Schrickker came third and Parry second in sparring.

Schwalbach says participating in the championship was a fantastic experience for the three students.

“Being able to watch black belt training was an inspiration for their future karate careers. In addition, the friendliness of everyone from Tang Soo Do made them feel like they were part of a family,” he says.

Cape Town Tang Soo Do Academy, located in Kenilworth, offers classes for adults and children from four years old
