“In order to be the champion, you have got to play the best, you have to beat the best.” – Doug Pederson

GIIS Ahmedabad takes immense pride in celebrating the victory of our outstanding champion Khushi Raval, grade 8A-AS who has emerged as champion at the 13th Gujarat State Karate Championship 2023. She has earned a green belt showcasing her prowess in the 46 kg category and competing in the U-14 age criteria. With her commitment, dedication, discipline and perseverance, Khushi has set a standard of excellence and has been shortlisted for a national-level tournament scheduled in December 2023.

As rightly said, “When passion meets recognition, the world takes notice.”  We are extremely proud to announce that the achievement by Khushi Raval was covered by esteemed media publications of the city including Divya Bhaskar.

The Gujarat State Shotokan Karate Championship 2023 was organized by the Nihon Shotokan Karate Association (NSKA) and held in Yugpurush Vivekanand Sports Complex, based in Anand, Gujarat. After these outstanding performances, Khushi is focusing on her performance in the national tournament.

When asked about her preparations, she said, “My coach has already told me that there will be various opportunities in your way, so you have to accept it and do your best. Do not think twice about the competitors’ level and try to knock them down with your confidence and preparation strategy." 

As of now, Khushi is following her normal routine and improving her techniques for the national tournament. Earlier in September 2023, Khushi had made GIIS Ahmedabad proud with her Karate prowess in the SGFI District-level Karate Tournament. She bagged 1st position in the U-14 category, followed by Dhanishtha Prajapati in the 2nd position.

GIIS Ahmedabad wishes Khushi all the best for her upcoming tournaments. We also congratulate her for the milestones achieved at such a young age. Kudos to her parents, coaches, and teachers for their constant support and guidance. 

GIIS Ahmedabad always strives to promote sports and other physical activities among students. Our school sports are foundational activities for students which enhance their skills to build physical strength and mental toughness.
