SKISA Development Workshop 2012

Gift of the Givers together with SKISA Karate Organisation conducted a free development workshop at the Dawnridge Primary School for children from the surrounding informal settlements, Marianhill and Welbedacht, as part of its Social Responsibility program. The workshop was attended by over 100 of the school's youth who were introduced to the basics of Shotokan Karate by 2 Time World Champion from Japan Manabu Murakami. The Japanese maestro assisted by Vice President of Karate South Africa (KSA), Kyoshi Sonny Pillay also did a self defence demonstration that inspired the children to take up the sport at the SKISA club in Dawnridge.

School Principal, Mr Pillay, paid glowing tribute to Gift of the Givers Foundation and SKISA for their generosity and selfless service geared towards upliftment of the youth amongst the down-trodden. SA Karate Legend Kyoshi Sonny Pillay said we will continue to take karate to the township children, because karate is not an elite sport and must be practised in every part of our country.

 

SKISA and GOG are also extremely grateful to local Sports administrators such as Pravesh Maharaj (CEO Crossmoor Sporting club) who have never failed to successfully arrange these free workshops. Chief Guest of Honours, Leader of the Minority Front Shameen Thakur Rajbansi, delivered the keynote address during which she paid tribute to SA Karate Legend Kyoshi Sonny Pillay (SKISA) and Dr Imtiaz Sooliman (Gift of the Givers). “Kyoshi Sonny Pillay and Dr Sooliman’s work amongst the township children particularly amongst the poorest of the poor is unparalled” said the MF Leader.
