India 2005

During July 2005 a team of 9 people from South Africa, went to India to participate in the international tournament which was hosted in Chennai, Tamil Nadu India.

The South African team would like to thank sensei Kalaimani, his students, friends and family for the wonderful time spent in India. We were all well looked after and a lot was learned about India that week.

Arrangements are underway to send a big team to Chennai in July 2006. We hope that other countries will join us there.

On our return, we got "stuck" in Mumbay for 6 days, The first day due to SAA strike and thereafter the Monsoon rains.

Our deepest sympathy goes to all our Indian friends who lost loved ones in the floods caused by these rains.
