International Shorei Martial Arts held their annual summer Gasshuku and black belt grading at TO Strand in Leisure Bay recently.

Diaan Bester from Suid-Natal Martial Arts Academy attended and received his first Dan black belt (Shodan).

Diaan Bester 1“Diaan started karate with me at the age of nine and with hard work and dedication, he has reached this outstanding achievement at the age of 16,” said Ugu Karate chairman and Sensei Coenie Vrey.

Vrey said the camp was once again a big success.

“This annual event has proved to be a fantastic experience because it’s not often that we have the opportunity for all senior instructors and students from all over South Africa to come together for a weekend’s traditional Goju-Ryu training.”
