Latest News – Leadership Program

The 2nd half of 2018 is shaping up to be an exciting time. We currently have four dedicated students on purple belt, training hard towards black belt. Two green belts from the 12-17’s have taken up the Leadership Challenge and will be working with the Instructors in the junior classes to develop their facilitation skills and pass on their knowledge. On top of this, we have several new red belts that are super keen, coming to as many classes as they can to develop their skills.

A big thank you to Sensei Stephen and Sensei Oliver for their excellent teaching over the school holidays. Sensei Stephen and Sensei Oliver ran their own classes over the holidays and did a fantastic job!

If you would like more information on the Leadership program, please contact Sensei Nick at office@evolutionjujutsu.com.au.
