SELF-DEFENCE – Coach Chong only has praise for the way in which the Senior girls are learning from him and Mr Haggard. He says: “I was absolutely stunned to see ALL the girls still practising after our session, once the girls had been dismissed. Never in my life have I seen an entire class practising after karate. I feel truly humbled to share my knowledge with these girls”.
