superb coaching clinics in both South Africa & Australia – March 2017


Always good to come home to Cape Town and catch up with our local riders and see my regulars, well done as always to our development riders, Aviwe Molose (Jackson) and Charles – a newcomer showing lots of enthusiasm and willingness on Court’s Hope.

 

Then up to Johannesburg for a very busy time and pleased to see some of my regulars improving well.

 

Finished month of March in Sydney and Perth, Australia with outstanding keen pupils, eager to learn and so enjoyed their approach and ‘joy’ in learning and embracing all.  I will be back
