ZKU prepares for Zone 6 games

HARARE - The Zimbabwe Karate Union (ZKu) has started preparations for this year’s edition of Zone Six Karate Championships to be held in Namibia next month.

ZKU president Joe Rugwete, who is also the vice secretary general of Zone Six Karate Union, said: “Karatekas are training in three centres across the country with the Midlands based athletes being trained by deputy head coach Frank Muvhakachi.

“Athletes in Masvingo Province are being trained by Andrew Musiiwa and the Harare based karatekas are being trained by Paul Danisa”

“We have got a competition this weekend at Prince Edward for the juniors, it’s like an inter-schools event organised by ZKU former president, Simba Chikutu.

“We are going to have the juniors in the Zone Six team taking part.”

The ZKU technical director, Paul Danisa has already selected a team of 35 karatekas.

Last year Zimbabwe finished in second place behind hosts Botswana and the ZKU president said they were hoping to continue with their good performance.

The event is set for June 28 and 29 with the Southern Africa region countries expected to battle it out in various categories. - Blessings Mashaya
