THIS sergeant will teach any stubborn thug a lesson with his bare hands and feet.
This is because Tshidiso Qhamakoane has a karate black belt and is an expert fighter.
Last week he took part in a full contact karate tournament and defeated all his opponents.
The cop from Thabong, Welkom was a big winner at this year’s SAPS National Martial Arts Championship in Sabie, Mpumalanga.
Police spokeswoman Sergeant Mamello Mokhuoane said: “The sergeant won the kumite (sparring) and kata (set form) categories.”
Last year, Tshidiso received two gold medals at the National Martial Arts Championship.
He was honoured for supporting the martial arts in SAPS and received a trophy for being the best coach at the tournament.
He told Daily Sun: “I am very happy that my dedication and hard work have paid off again.
“The immense support I received from my family, colleagues and Free State martial arts members has been incredible. I really appreciate it.”
He started doing Kyokushinkaikan style karate in 1989 while still at high school.
He already had a black belt when he joined the police force in 1998 and never looked back.
The dedicated detective also runs his own Welkom Iko Kyokushin Kaikan Studio that teaches martial arts.
