COMPETITION

Recently, the Provincial Martial Arts Championships was held in Parow – we all know it as THE CAPE CLASSIC!

CJA took a huge team of incredibly brave warriors along, to show what we are all made of! J

Out of a total of 111 competitors we came away with 115 medals!!

GOLD: 56

SILVER: 32

BRONZE: 27

Not only the incredible medal count, but CJA students took all of the Grand Championship trophies for grappling home!

We are so incredibly proud of all our warriors, young and slightly older, who came out and showed the most incredible spirit, sportsmanship and savvy skills!

Simply splendid, super stars!

We have sent out the results of the competition to your school, so that they are aware of what an amazing job you’ve done.

 

Remember: If you achieved a medal (in any division) at Cape Classic, and you then compete (in that same division) at Destiny, YOU WILL BE ELIGIBLE TO RECEIVE YOUR WESTERN PROVINCE COLORS! Let’s have everyone enter at Destiny, to showcase a record number of people receiving their WP colors later this year! J

DESTINY:

In the third term, we will be working towards Destiny, which takes place on the 7th and 8th October! This is the national competition, and a great chance for our warriors to test their skills against other clubs and fighters, and of course, have a whole lot of fun! J (Grade 1 and up only)

The winners from Destiny are eligible to get their South African Colors, by joining the SA Squad, and touring to Orlando, USA, to fight in the world championships and represent South Africa in 2018.

USA WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS

  • Franco van Schalkwyk
  • Christian Hiemstra
  • Joshua Mathiesen
  • Brian Mathiesen
  • Phoenix Plant

We wish them the very best of skills and strength, and we know they will make us seriously proud! J

CAMP

A quick teaser for the camp which will be coming up in the third term!

Taking place on the 1st – 3rd September, the camp always proves to be the EPIC highlight of the whole year! J

Taking place in an old prison (The Groot Draakenstein Cultural Facility), The CJA Camp is a legendary weekend away for both students, and parents / visitors!

Consisting of hard training, marshmallow braais, pillow fights, coupled with loads of fun, swimming, resting, and sunshine thrown in the mix, makes for a SENSATIONAL weekend away! Our young warriors with their parents are invited to come join in on the fun time! Or they can also come along on their own as well!

We will send out more details closer to the time.

Remember that spaces are limited, so get back to us soon when the camp mail goes out! J
