THe International Kanazawa Cup 2016 hosted last weekend in Durban by the SKISA organisation was dominated by team SKISA, led by Protea head coach Brando Pillay, who demolished all opposition in the team events.
Tournament director Hanshi Sonny Pillay said that the event was attended by a record number of participants, more than 500 karateka from throughout the country as well as abroad and was an overwhelming success with a huge spectator turn out.
“As a matter of interest the Kanazawa Cup one of South Africa's premier tournaments always attracts the top tournament fighters from throughout the country and never fails to deliver thrills, spills and chills,” said Hanshi Pillay who also serves as the President of KSA (national all styles federation for karate in SA).
Japanese karate maestro the two-time world champion Murakami Manabu, who chaired the championships, expressed his absolute delight at the high standard of fighting techniques on display.
“Every year I attend the Kanazawa Cup and it becomes bigger and better,” said the Maestro Murakami from Japan. He also gave an excellent demo of self defence fighting techniques with local tournament seasoned fighter Njabulo Khumalo as a highlight of the event.
