Great group of people!Great experience. I have only trained once with them, I was in Darwin for work. Great group of people and Luke was very good in explaining positions and techniques to everyone. Definitely would recommend them. Thanks!
They are a great crew!I started attending classes in 2016 at the age of 46. It was very daunting just walking into the facility for the first time but the instructors and other participants were very supportive and welcoming. The classes were well structured with a variety of skilled instructors. who broke down moves into clear steps, and gave us ample opportunity to practice with people at all skill levels. The instructors spent time with every participant and gave great feedback on how to make improvements.
