The official South African All-Styles Senior Karate Championship held on 23/24 February in Kimberley in the Northern Cape proved to be a most successful venture for the Karate-no-Michi South Africa National Kata Team of Bryan Dukas, Tyrone Theodorides and Saville Dorfman.
Competing under the provincial banner of Central Gauteng, the team took the Unison team title by a large margin, and then individually went on to take the gold medal (Bryan Dukas), and the two joint 3rd place bronze medals (Tyrone Theodorides and Saville Dorfman).
Unfortunately, there had to be a loser in the semi-final bout between team mates Bryan and Tyrone, who were drawn in the top half of the draw.
Bryan Dukas then went on to collect his third medal, a bronze in the under 65 kgs kumite division, making him the only male competitor to do so in this championship - a deserving result for such a committed karateka.
Bronze medals for kumite were taken by Karate-no-Michi S.A members Sonja Kummer of Headquarters, also competing for the Central Gauteng team, and Natasha Raath of Kuruman/Kathu Dojo, competing for Northern Cape, in the under 53 kgs division.
