All our students qualified to attend the ISKA World Championships of 2017 in Orlando Florida.
The Walvis Bay Kickboxing club has been attending Destiny since 2012 with great success.
We would not have been able to send the amount of students to compete in this world class competition, and making their dreams a reality without the support of the following sponsors: Namibia Breweries Limited, M&Z Motors, Megatron and Walters Electrical Services for their donations towards the tour.
We would like to thank them for their generosity.
