So following on last week’s heads up on the Commonwealth Karate Championships held here in South Africa, it was a great pleasure to learn last night that young Anke walked away with two medals from the tournament, namely Gold for the Team Kumite event and Silver for the Individual Kumite.

Oh, and a nifty green and gold SA tracksuit to boot! Congratulations Anke, you did Gordon’s Bay Funakoshi proud once again! :)
