I never really exceeded in anything when i was young. I finally got married and had 2 kids when i was 30. A month before my 35 birthday i joined the karate and kickboxing club in Lephalale. My reason was to lose weight and try to feel better about myself. Never did i imagine that i would be any good in something. I went to participate in my first competition in March 2017. I won my first 2 bronze medals. My goal was set for the year. From there i competed in the diamond classics. Got 4 silver medals and 1 Gold.
I wanted to go to Destiny. It was were you have to compete and qualify to be selected for the SA Team. There i competed and i qualified to go to the 2018 ISKA WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS in Orlando Florida. I was selected to be a member of the Official South Africa NMA/ISKA/SAGA - SASMA to go and present my country in June 2018.
My total cost for the tour is R37 000, unfortunately it is without spending money or any lunch or dinners. I still have to apply for my visum which is an extra R2000, and then we have to buy the sport kit ourselves. That is a further plus/minus R2500.
I am asking for any donation great or small. The money do not have to be paid to me, it can be paid directly into the tour organisation. i will gladly give the details if anyone out there can help me.
I am currently a green belt, hoping to grade begin March and get my blue belt
I am walking from business to business without any real luck....
Please help me
