Toutrek – Wynand Barnard
Baie dankie vir die geleentheid om ‘n toutrek aanbieding te kon doen die jaar, dit was ‘n sukses en almal betrokke het dit baie geniet. Dit was ‘n goeie bemarkings geleentheid vir die sport van Toutrek.
Aangesien al die nationale spanne reeds weg of op pad was na kampieonskappe, kon die Prestige byeenkoms nie weer die jaar gehou word by die skou nie. Daar is wel gevra dat dit weer volgende jaar daar gedoen kan word en reeds op die program geplaas is.
Vir die blootstelling is daar weer teen die trekker getrek vir die Trofee. Hierdie jaar het die manne en dames dit geneem. Wel gedaan
Om te wys dat toutrek nie net ernstig kan wees nie, het ons goedgedink om ‘n tekkie-trek kompetisie te hou tussen besighede. Dit het ook die besighede gehelp met span bou. Ons was verbaas om meer belangstelling van die vroumense aft e kry as die mans, en dit nog tydens vrouemaand. Daar was 9 dames wat deelgeneem het die dag, waar slegs een ‘n vorige toutreker was.
KICKBOXING & BOXING – Anne van der Merwe & Chantel Norris
We would once again like to thank DCAS and Eden Sport Council for their support in helping us promote the sport of Kickboxing and enabling us to develop our fighters into future world class athletes.
The EKF Development Tournament was held on Friday and Saturday, 29 and 30 August 2019 in George at SA Sports League. The tournament coincided with the annual George Agri Festival at the Showgrounds. This festival runs over three days and draws a few thousand people on a daily basis. We piggybacked on this events’ exposure and successfully created a platform for our athletes to showcase their talent and passion to a larger audience.
On Friday evening, 29 August 2019, a development kickboxing ring sport event was held at the same venue. We had the following clubs enter fighters:
Mile High Kickboxing – Port Elizabeth Venters Martial Arts – Melkbos Forge – Oudtshoorn Divinus – George
It was a packed event with a great display of skill and sportsmanship. On Saturday, 30 August 2019, Tatami Development training was provided to both the athletes and the officials. The following clubs entered both athletes and officials for development training:
Grebe’s Kickboxing DMF Blanco Kickboxing Divinus Kickboxing Pacaltsdorp Kickboxing
Due to the fact that our event was held during the George Agri Festival, George Sport Council provided Legacy Funding to participating affiliated members and medals and trophies were sponsored by DCAS. The purpose of the Legacy Funding was to provide funding for much needed items for the Federation. Communication was sent out to all fifteen (15) EKF Affiliated Clubs for suggestions. The following clubs’ suggestions were received:
Grebe’s Blanco DMF Divinus Sansai Eden
Due to the allotted Legacy Funding amount available, it was decided that Focus Mitts, Belly Pads and a Kicking Target were on a majority of clubs’ lists. At the conclusion of the Development Tournament, we were able to hand over the items (1 x Focus Mitts and 1 x Belly Pad) to the five (5) clubs that submitted suggestions. The Kicking Target will remain at the WC Kickboxing Academy for use by all clubs. A demonstration by two (2) EFK blackbelts on the use of the Kicking Target, was well received.
A tag Team event was also held in closing of the development tournament. This was a fast-paced and exhilarating experience for the audience. Feedback from parents and audience members was extremely positive and numerous requests were received for more ring sport events to be held to enable to progression from Tatami to the ring.
Eden Sport Council and DCAS was a tremendous help with this event. Not only were we able, as a Federation, to provide medals and trophies to our athletes, but great exposure was also given to the sport of Kickboxing.
Weereens dankie aan almal wat die sportfees suksesvol gemaak het.
