“The SECKO Championships at the Fish River Sun Resort has become one of the most popular, most enjoyed and exciting events on the local karate calendar, and this is largely thanks to the great team of people who work behind the scenes.”
A fifth arena has been added this year to cope with demand, and the additional places were “soon filled by karateka eager to compete at the championship”.
