Martial Arts Scholarship Program
Our club strives to make our training accessible to everyone in our community. We believe in helping people with varying disabilities and regardless of financial background. We aim to help where we can, and really believe in being a positive force behind our community. One way we can help is by offering subsidised training for particular individuals who may not have the capacity to work full time, or that come from low-income families. We have a number of students who are on a scholarship program.
