"It's long time since you taught me the martial
arts, still remember the first time you gave me a demonstration in
Carrington Street and I started training the next week. I was only 14,
back in the good old days. Where did the time go? I am now 41 with 2
boys, Max 11 and Cooper 8, and married like yourself. I still remember
the time we went to Sydney to the All Style Nationals in Parramatta and
you took us to see the movie 'Beyond Thunder Dome' Mad Max and Tina
Turner, the funny things you remember. As you can tell I am still very
passionate about martial arts and am proud and glad you still pass your
skills on especially to kids. To this day I believe you to be the best
mentor students can have, not just a great instructor, and were always
fair and tolerant to me. Thanks for the memories.” Tim Hannan
