    Hi Sensei, I have been meaning to thank you quietly for a number of months now and i took the opportunity today to do it but i don’t think i made myself clear so i will try now. I am 34 years old now. Many years ago, up until age 20, i was a very fit person and managed to push myself through barriers that were in front of me. Mentally and physically.


    Martial Arts training is a personal journey for me, I have learned that I need to commit myself fully if I am to grow from this experience, every lesson I learn something new or become stronger I feel so good about myself. I am loving every minute and having so much fun, thanks!


    Benefits I have received from Martial Arts have been most importantly discipline. As I am a catholic, it has strengthened my own personal beliefs and values and helped me to realise what love and service is all about.


    On Saturday night I was lucky enough to be taken along to the Rugby league test (Oz vs England), and it was my Northstar training that allowed me to not only avoid a vicious alcohol-fueled brawl right next to where I was sitting but also to identify the looming fight and assist my hosts in getting out of the danger area promptly.
