Well done to the 20 students who enrolled in our Instructor Leadership program and attended our first training session last month. Our first session covered a range of topics, including how to take care of a student in their first lesson. We are so excited with the overwhelming potential in the group and look forward to watching our new  instructing team positively influence our students on the mats. Our next training date will be Saturday Nov 18th, commencing at 1.30pm

We would lastly like to extend a very warm congratulations to one of our Black Belts and longest training members, Louise Minch, on recently becoming Nanna Louise to her new grandson Harry! Both Harry and mum, Jessie, are doing very well and we wish them lots of love for the future. No doubt Louise will have Harry punching and kicking in no time. .
