Instructorship promotions

It is with GREAT pleasure that I award the following people the qualifications that they have earned!

Full Instructors

* Leigh Richardson- Black Belt 2nd Dan
* Peter Richardson - Black Belt 2nd Dan
* James MacDonald- Black Belt 1st Dan

Associate Instructors

* Ray Wilson - Brown Belt
* Caz Ewan - Brown Belt
* Ross Turner- Brown Belt
* Bill Mutch- Brown Belt

Apprentice Instructors

* Heather Kerr - Purple Belt

Full Instructor in Muay Thai

* Mathew Russell - Red And Silver Arm Band

In the case of Leigh and Peter they have trained for a lot longer than anyone else through times when there was never any thought on gradings or qualifications. This extra time is represented in the 2nd Dan Black Belt qualification. Not only do they exemplify the quality AMAG can produce, they also seek to develop in their own pursuits.

James had trained for 10 year on a consistent basis and whilst he is moving on has exemplified the attributes that the AMAG training brings. He is also an excellent teacher and will be missed.

Ray, Caz, Ross and Bill have all trained for a long period of time and again are great examples of what you can achieve. All 4 will be taking their UFA tests this year.

We welcome Heather onto the Apprentice programme and I'm sure she will continue to develop in the same way the others have done so.

Matt has trained with me for around 15 years and while he has now a competency in grappling, his love for Muay Thai has been a great asst to AMAG. This qualification is the highest accolade i can give.

I hope you all will take the time to congratulate the above when you see them. They should be your role models and i hope your names will join them on the list in the future.
