Updates to SKKSA ID

img_1257

Our student management system, SKKSA ID, will be getting a major update later this month.

We have introduced a new set of software tools that will enable our instructors to have more control over the information pertaining to their dojos. As such, from the end of July 2016, you can request information regarding your student profile directly from your instructor.

SKKSA ID was introduced in 2014 and has set us apart from other karate organisations by streamlining the student records system and digitising examination, training, seminar and student data. This major update will allow you to get information regarding grading eligibility a lot quicker than before.

Full training reports for Saturday Training will now be available on-demand rather than the bi-annual process in the past. This allows you to keep track of your attendance and make sure you’re within the margin to be eligible for entering final senior exams.

The new software will allow our instructors to have a better understanding of the student base in their dojo, and make class decisions that are better informed. The software forms part of our “Osaka Tools for SKKSA” suite, developed in-house by SKKSA Media.

Announcing the SKKSA Summer Course 2015

We’re excited to announce our year-end events, starting with the Sumer Course 2015.

Continuing our tradition of successful gasshukus, our 2015 edition promises fun, learning and the chance for karateka from across our South African dojos to meet each other and share their knowledge and passion for the art.

Karateka will get the opportunity to train under our senior instructors from the north to south coast of KZN – instructors who have trained internationally under Rikuta Koga Hanshi of the SKISF Swiss Federation – and learn the latest developments in the Shotokan style under our leadership from Switzerland.

Summer Course 2015 will run from 4 – 6 December 2015.

For the first time, we will be conducting Shodan (1st Dan) examinations, alongside our final kyu examinations and Brown Belt Kyu Gradings.

Details on the examinations will follow soon. In the meantime, we encourage our karateka to be regular at dojo training to be prepared for final exams. You may also access the kyu exam programme from our Karateka Portal (syllabus available for yellow to purple belt categories).
