It has been a super Month for our Students, who got the chance to shine at their respective discipline.

A HUGE well done to everyone who advanced their martial arts journey, from our youngest Little Ninjas and Little Samurais, through our Karate Jutsu gradings and up to the Muay Thai and ladies kickboxers.

You all did a truly super job.
