Dear Jeff,

Just a few words of thanks for the lovely article that Ron Jackson did on the “Bensch Family” in African Ring. The response we received from all that read it was overwhelming. A short update on my grandson Jade Jordaan, He won Johannesburg Championships in the 57kg division and then went on to win the
Gauteng Championship in the 54kg division.

He is in training for the upcoming S.A Championship in Bloemfontein this September. We are holding thumbs that he wins that title as well.

The battle has been an uphill one for Jade because at 14 he is often fighting boys
of 16. He loves the sport and is improving with every fight and we are very proud of his achievements thus far.

Good luck with your magazine and we look forward to the next issue.

Charlie Bensch
