Congratulations to 11 year old Cassidy Williams from Mitchell’s Plain for winning two gold medals (one for Kumite, and one for Elite Kata) at the Karate South African Elite and Open Competition in Durban. The Parkhurst Primary School learner will be competing in Bloemfontein in August, and then at the World Karate Federation in Dubai in January
Cassidy says that it is difficult to juggle school and training, but when it comes to school work and exams, she puts Karate aside and starts focusing on her books. She trains right through the weekends and right through the school holidays. She also loves drawing, playing soccer and netball, and she wants to study graphic design. She also aims to be a sensei.
