So we’ve just finished our first week back after the festive break, and already its been an exciting week! We’ve squeezed so much in 7 days, and 2018 is only just beginning…
We welcomed everyone back to classes this week, and kick started the year off on a high. Great energy and enthusiasm throughout all classes, and targets set for the year!
Yesterday saw the official launch of our special needs classes for both kids, and teens/adults, after a number of sessions throughout November & December we can already see those who came along and took part are super excited, enjoying the classes, and eager to continue. We have also been asked along to another community action project in Boghall, with our first Martial Arts session starting tomorrow, and look to continue our work within the local communities and schools in the areas surrounding our gyms.
We have some exciting new things planned for 2018 on the competition mat, and have already kick started this with our Taekwon-Do Joint Competitor Development Training alongside our friends at Scotia TKD, 2 session in and already we see lots of progress, and look forward to workin

It’s already shaping up to be the best year yet at GMAC! Excited for what next week brings…!
On behalf of all the GMAC Instructors and Assistants, we’d like to take the opportunity to thank you all for another great year. It has been another extremely busy year, filled with various events, competitions, as well as lots of courses and seminars.
Personally we’d like to thank all the instructors who’ve put so much in to the classes this year, continually working hard, pushing the students to get the best from them. We’ve seen every single student achieve something this year, and we look forward to working hard together to achieve even more in 2018.
We as always thank you for your continued support, and wish you all a very happy and safe holiday with family and friends.
Merry Christmas & A Very Prosperous New Year when it comes!! We’ll see you all refreshed and raring to go in January!
