Where Ordinary People Become Champions

Ian le Roux Sensei
7th Dan

With great credit to all the excellent JKA Karate instructors that taught at this prestigious karate club, a unique and extremely successful approach to practising and teaching karate was established over a period of nearly six decades. With a strong educational approach and the primary focus on the development of the total individual by using karate training and participation as the vehicle, Kovsie Karate did in the past and is still producing karateka that excel in traditional karate, sport karate and life in general. Students and former students of Kovsie Karate (including their parents and family) reflect to the great role Kovsie Karate played in their development in both karate and life skills. Hence our slogan “Where ordinary people become champions” is aimed at producing champions in general life skills like a healthy self-esteem, good inter-personal relationships, dedication, resilience, etc and ultimately being exemplary in living the five maxims of karate as was laid down by the great masters who developed this noble art. (Click here to see more about these maxims).

At Kovsie Karate there is much more to it than training and participating in sport and winning medals. I invite you to expose yourself and your children to this great culture of learning and development by joining our karate family at Kovsie Karate.

God Bless
