Underprivileged and development

Free State GoJuKai has 2 Development Dojo’s, Kruitberg dojo and Zastron dojo. Seishin dojo has a number of students from Engo orphanage that are fully sponsored by Free State GoJuKai.


Sensei Joseph Mokhoro also has a new program in the pipeline form 2024.


I think what makes Free State so special is that we do not distinguish between dojos. Every dojo and every student is treated and regarded equally and treated as family. We build a strong leadership by leading by example through training as well as in our personal life. By following the way of the warrior (Bushido).


What makes Free State GoJuKai Unique and Special


Free State GoJuKai takes part in numerous events through the year. Local, national and international competitions and seminars. WKF events, KSA events, FSKF events GoJukai provincial, GoJuKai National and International events.

Some events during 2023


We had students in the protea team representing KSA.

21 Students and parents travelled to Italy in 2023 to take part in the European championship and seminar and the Free State won 5 medals at the European championship.
