It was a pleasure to host a seminar with Sensei Paul Herbert on the 11th May 2013 at the Centre.
We had various members attend the modules during the day. Here are some of our members with Sensei Herbert and some of his students who also attended.

We are pleased to announce the appointment of Sempai Andrea Higgon as the TMAC Kata coach, assisting me with the Kata program. Having looked at our competition plans and ideas for the next 12 months (and beyond), I feel it is time to have a dedicated coach helping me look at the way we perform our Katas. Also, for the competition squad (and those students who wish to enter competitions at a later stage of their training) to have another coach responsible for development.
Andrea will also look at Katas we may not normally practice at the Centre for possible inclusion on our Kata list.
This appointment will be of assistance to me and to all of our Karateka members.
All other Instructors, and assistant instructors valuable assistance and excellent teaching remains unchanged.
Sensei David Wilson
Well done Kate!
