BOTSWANA TO HOST THE 2015 CHAMPIONSHIPS
The style founded by Sensei Andrew Dobolo is currently under the stewardship of Isaiah Ramontshonyana.
After the departure of Dobolo, Ramontshonyana was appointed by Ryushin-Kan Africa as the style’s Chief Instructor.
“There was confusion after Sensei Dobolo’s departure, but things have stabilized and some of our best karetekas are back and training hard,” said Ramontshonyana.
The style which has always focused of developing young talent has quickly caught fire in both the south and northern region.
“We target kids in government schools. Most of these kids cannot even afford training gear so most of the time we use our own money to help with grading,” he said.
Ramontshonyana said 35 karatekas have already confirmed participation with the number expected to rise in the coming two weeks.
Ryushin-Kan Botswana would be competing in the tournament for the fourth time
