Eliza’s strengths are her commitment, determination and her ability to have a laugh at herself. In the past, Eliza has benefited from not only training with Sensei Mark and Sempai Jon from the North Coast Kyokushin dojos, but also Shihan Rick Cunningham who has taught at Lismore Dojo.
Eliza has a strong, healthy rivalry with her older brother Jack who also trains in the Aspley Little Lions. Eliza’s mum Amanda also trains in the adult class so it makes it very hard to find excuses not to train!
I look forward to watching Eliza grow not only as a student of Karate, but also as a person.
Josh began when he was seven years old. In the last six months, at just nine years of age, Josh started attending the Adults classes as well as the Kids classes. Despite being half their height, his jodan mawashi geri (roundhouse face kick) techniques will still smack them in the jaw if they’re not careful!
Josh has exceptional ability, an affinity for Karate and an amazing amount of focus and dedication for his age.
Josh embodies what the KIMAA Little Lions program is all about. He is an energetic and talented young man who is using his Karate to improve his personal and physical development. Josh is a source of inspiration for all the kids at the Dojo and does not expect nor is given any special treatment.
