Last night was awesome - we ran our class in Geoff's new school at the top of Taranaki St; it was a good first test for the school, with well over 50 people on the mat, and still room to move. Awesome job Geoff! new ranks were awarded to a handful of very deserving students but especially 'special' was the presentation of a brown belt to Hemi Pou - what a wonderful person; amazing skills, softly spoken, always smiling and one of those people who goes out of his way to help every other student on the mat. When a mat has someone like Hemi on board - it cannot help but grow and prosper ... congratulations Hemi! Congratulations Geoff, for creating such a unique and fun-filled training environment.
Well, time to go - the headwaters of my secret stream await ...
