Head of the newly-launched Khomasdal Karate dojo, 17-year -old Morchen Kruger, has been practising Karate for over 13 years before officially opening her own Khomasdal Karate Club this week.
Speaking at the club launching ceremony on Tuesday, Shotokan karate style head, Sensei Willem Burger said that karate has many  benefits to it and is meant for people of all ages.
“Karate takes a lot of dedication and hardwork, and the aim of Karate lies not in victory or defeat but in the perfection of one’s character.”
Because of the fact that Karate forces concentration, Burger  said that learner marks also tend to improve.
He added that as a Christian-based organisation, they believe in enforcing strong moral principles as well as strict discipline. He congratulated Kruger on her achievement as karate is not only a sport, but a lifestyle.
An enthusiastic Kruger said that she has finally achieved her dream as this is what she has always wanted to do since she started with her karate training.
The Khomasdal Karate offers training  twice a week, in all three categories namely: kiddies karate, junior and senior categories.
All interested participants are encouraged to enroll or call 0814623097 for more information.
