I am Soon Pretorius - fanatic and diehard student of Karate-do with many years of experience.
Allow me to share my knowledge and experiences gained over 50 years of training hoping to motivate and inspire your journey as student in Karate-do.
Please study the Free Kata video’s, enjoy the Karate Academy info of schools in Pretoria, consider a friendly and dynamic Karate Organization or consider an invite to present a Seminar.
Look forward to hearing from you!
The academy changed Christopher from a shy 16 year old to a very confident young man.

Dear Sensei Soon. It has been many years since I had to give up my many hours of training in order to complete my studies at medical school, and even more years after we first met in 1989. I have never had the chance to say THANK YOU for playing such a big role in my growing up – and to my Karate Academy family who played a huge role in creating the best I can be! Till we meet again!
