Firstly we would like to let you know that James has been exceptionally considerate towards both family and school friends. He has been helping mum out around the house, helps Michael draw (especially angrybirds) and we have also been given feedback from his teacher that he has been volunteering to help during classes.
The growth in James has been great to witness and we can credit part of this to what he is taught and Waima. So thank you from us.
Off to our second week of training at the WA Institute of Martial Arts… These guys really know there stuff, are great fun and really welcoming!!
I look forward to the coming months of pain and fun whilst they whip me into shape! (a shape other than round!)
I would recommend them to anyone of any fitness level.
I highly recommend Briana my son’s Ninja Ru Instructor her skills dealing with my son and all the under six year olds in her class is outstanding.
Edan and myself have been through a very tough time and this class has been a great help for his confidence and Brianna has been more than supportive and excelled as a role model to my son.
I just wanted to let you know how appreciative I am of her skills with dealing with this and her very caring manner.
Ayden had his orange belt graduation today and is so proud. He is sitting here at the moment writing a letter to Will to ask to join the black belt club! Bless martial arts is totally changing him.
Before Terrance chatted to him him was on negative 6 at school and now he is on a positive 20! For Ayden to write a letter is even more amazing. Thanks for Martial arts you guys are changing one boy’s life for sure.
