The South African Ryukyu Martial Arts Federation held their annual National Tournament in Sasolburg, Free State from 21 to 22 July.

Representative from Nelson Mandela Bay and Eastern Cape did exceptionally well with the Eastern Cape taking top honours provincially.

Erica Maritz, in the lady’s masters category, was the trophy winner for her age category where she won two silver and three gold medals.  Shuaib Kieviets, in the 16 to 18 years category, was top performer in this category with one silver and three gold medals.

Renshi Steve Johnson, 6th Dan, said, “We are very proud of our team who have excelled in this tournament.  This comes on the back of our successful Shorin-Ryu Shorin-kan National event that we hosted in Port Elizabeth earlier this month.”
