My name is Jarrod Odendal and I am from South Africa. I created this Page in the hope of funding my trip to Croatia, where I have been afforded the opportunity to represent my Country at the upcoming 2019 WKF Karate Youth League in UMAG.
At this event; I will be able to learn more about Competition Karate from the Legends of my Sport, who will be acting as Instructors. This will all take place at a Training Camp prior to the Competition, where Athletes will be training and competing from around the World. This will further enable me to bring knowledge back, that I can pass on to the Students I teach.
I started Karate at the age of Four with Sensei Ben Màre and ever since then it has become a part of my life. I am currently a Grade 12 Student at the Roseway Waldorf School. At the age of 15 (2017), I started volunteering at 1000 Hills Community Helpers in Inchanga, Kwazulu Natal. There I teach approximately 250 Students every Week.
