Dear Parent/Guardian

“This Course has been specifically formulated to develop the coaching and leadership skills of our younger students,
enabling and empowering them to help and assist at their classes under the mentorship of their Sensei.
The skills and knowledge that will be imparted to them can be carried forward in all parts of their lives both now and in the future.
