Rustenburg – Shihan Chris Seabelo, head of Japanese Karate Association (JKA) in the North West, continues to receive recognition in some of the most prestigious international circles in the sport.   

The Rustenburg-based karate expert was one of South Africa’s instructors and competitors who attended an international seminar and tri-nations championship in Germany, which ran from Friday 26 July to Sunday 4 August. 
More than 950 karate students from Germany, Australia and South Africa as well as highly trained instructors from Japan took part in the championships, which were held to prepare for the 2020 world championships and the Tokyo Olympic games.  
Sensei Johan la Grange, the chief instructor of JKA in South Africa, conducted seminars during the event. 
He expressed confidence that the young South African team would benefit immensely from competing against the German team, which has the second biggest JKA style karate organisation in the world, after Japan.
