A Great Saturday Afternoon!

Thank you to all the fighters for their efforts and commitment.
Sensei Jane and Shihan Peter appreciate the officials and helpers who make sure things run smoothly. Ben, Lindsey, Graham and Mark did a fine job!
The drawings, exams, sessions and competitions could not happen without the support of the families and friends of the students. Their help is a great benefit to the club.
