Special Achievements

RoyKilemanjarogi1Recently ROY TERNENT a 4Kyu Student of Hanshi Hans Haupt of the Benoni Honbu Dojo climbed Mount KILIMANJARO. He is the First Tenshinkan Member to climb and reach the top of Mount Kilimanjaro. We congratulate Roy in this Great Achievement. Taking his Gi up the mountain added an extra 3KG to his weight to carry up the mountain. He practiced and trained for weeks to be fit to do the climb. I believe His Karate determination and spirit helped him in this task. It is an extremely High mountain and severely Cold up there and the Oxygen levels make it very difficult to breathe. Here he is with his Gi Top and Belt on reaching the top peak of kilimanjaro. Well done Roy.
