Sensei Ally takes the Green Belt evening class on Wednesday 6.30pm - 7.30pm.
Kyoshi Ally wishes for her students to be able to walk away from class feeling a sense of achievement, so provides opportunities for them to learn new skills and encourages pushing themselves.
The class is a high energy one with a focus on correct basic technique, excellent etiquette and strong spirit. Kyoshi Ally works through syllabus with the students and also on sparring techniques and combinations.
Kyoshi Ally enjoys the challenge that teaching brings and is constantly learning about her own karate through this process.
