Switzerland 7-15 October 2021

We received an invitation in 2019 from the head of Switzerland Goju Kai, Horst Baumgartel Shihan to visit Switzerland but due to the Covid pandemic, we have been struggling to realise this tour. However, we never gave up on this once in a lifetime experience and had finally been given the green light to travel from 7 to 15 October 2021.

All students from different backgrounds will share this experience and benefit from this humanitarian journey. 


Students and parents were exposed to fun-filled tours, meeting new friends within Swiss Goju Kai, participate in open-air karate demonstrations in the local town square and as ambassadors of South Africa, we visited the parliament house in Bern. 


This tour was aimed at opening the hearts of our members by them understanding that kindness and tolerance of all people is key to the growth of the human spirit and is vital towards being a person that can contribute positively to the world. 

This tour is an African Warriors Of Light initiative. African Warriors Of Light, Goju Kai’s official NPO assists our less fortunate students to realise their dreams through travel. 

The group consisted of the following officials: 

Frank Brandon Shihan 

Craig Kansley Shihan 

Rob Dekenah Sensei 

Sean Ahmed Sensei 

Geoff Staz Sensei
