The Polish Training Sessions got of to a great start with Mr Trotter and Ms Dillen teaching a full on day in Whangarei on February 28th.

An enthusiastic group trained all day long and learnt a great deal. The session ended with an Instructors Only presentation and discussion, giving senior members a real insight into the way things are done in Poland.

Mr Trotter sang high praises for Master Dedut from Poland and expressed thanks for his amazing knowledge and experience which we always gives freely with such enthusiasm.
