Outside the Square

A weekend that will re-vitalise your training!

Get outside of that rut and start thinking Outside the Square.

25 & 26th February 2012 - MMC, 198 Marua Road, Ellerslie.

Following on from the Rave Reviews*, Carolina Dillen, Jeremy Hanna and Master Paul McPhail are teaming up to bring an extended version of their OUTSIDE THE SQUARE session presented at the 3rd Instructors Conference.

Suitable for both Instructors and students, this weekend will re-vitalise your training and give instructors the tools to use put these methods into practice at their own school.

 Learn how to make your sessions safer, measurable, enjoyable and get better results!
