LOCAL karate superstars impressed at the KwaZulu-Natal Shotokan Karate-Do International South Africa (SKISA) Challenge held at the University of Durban University of Technology (DUT) Sports Complex.

Ballito’s Demzil Muric and Priyanka Govender demolished their opposition to win gold in the Cadet and Junior divisions respectively.

Muric, a grade 10 pupil at Ashton College expressed his joy at winning gold at the SKISA Challenge and was hoping to repeat his feat at the Karate South Africa (KSA) national championship to be held next year.

The Reddy twins, Tahira and Kira, and brother Atesh who practice their karate at the Tongaat Sports Centre under the watchful eye of the President of Karate South Africa, Hanshi Sonny Pillay (8th Dan) dominated the children’s categories.

“Our SKISA team challenge brings out the best in me,” said Tahira Reddy of Crawford North Coast, who won several medals over the years in championships throughout the Republic of South Africa.

Sensei Jabulo Khumalo, who was recently appointed coach of the eThekwini Region, was full of praise for these North Coast champions and was confident that they will rise to greater heights in the future.

Protea coach, Brando Pillay who mentors the champions said: “These young tigers are growing from strength to strength which augurs well for the forthcoming SKI Kanazawa World Championship to be held in Indonesia in August 2016.”
