Written by Midweek. Posted in Sport

Klerksdorp Midweek, Klerksdorp - Xante Damon competed at the NMA/ISKA Diamond Classic in Kimberley on 7 and 8 August.

She won gold for kumite and points fighting, silver for traditional kata, continuous fighting and traditional weapons kata.

The silver medal in traditional weapons kata is quite an achievement due to the fact that there was not a division for traditional weapons for girls 7 years and she had to compete against girls 13 years and younger.

This division consisted of 8 participants with Xante being the youngest.

The winner of this division was 13 years old and won gold with a total of 18.3, whilst Xante was placed 2nd with a total of 18.2.

She is practicing Traditional Tang Soo Do and is coached by Master Louise Viviers.
