Annual Sensei Rob Ferrier
Open JKA Tournament

This tournament takes place at the end of every year and is an awesome opportunity for all of us to compete against other JKA karate dojo’s from around KZN. It is the best platform for everybody to give competition karate a try, if they have not competed before and for those that have, to test their skills against other people their age and belt level!

The cost is R120 per division, per competitor, and we encourage everybody to enter their KATA and Kumite (basic fighting) divisions!

If you or your children are interested in competing in this tournament, please enclose the R240 (both divisons) in an envelope with their Name, Age, Date of Birth and Belt level written on the front and hand it to me before the 15th of November.

Thanks everybody!
Oss.
