All about WAIMA’s Black Belt Club People often ask us, what is BBC? Black Belt Club (BBC) takes your training to the next level. It's where you make a commitment not only to your training but to live your life like a martial artist, constantly striving for improvement in yourself and others. For kids, BBC is taking on a responsibility to become an inspiring role model. This may be as leader to other kids in and out

of class as well as contributing to the community. BBC members are rewarded with a fortnightly class that teaches them the mindset of a champion through trick kicking, weapon forms, Krav maga and much more. They also get BBC-only social events which gives members an opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals. There are different options when it comes to becoming a BBC member so enquire with your instructor today!

Farewell Jack Sadly the time has come to say goodbye to our Thai trainer and good friend Jack. We have had the pleasure of training and learning from him for the last two years and will be very sad to see him leave. Although he will be gone the mark that he has made on our school will last forever and a little bit of

him will live here with us until his return. He's more than just a trainer, he is a big part of our WAIMA family. Come and wish Jack a final farewell on Saturday the 25th of August from 5 - 7pm and make sure you check out his last fight at the upcoming BATTLE COLOSSAL.

A well known saying states “knowledge is power.” Learning is valuable for building confidence as well as stimulating your mind and creative thinking.
