Odette Kotze, Student

I was intimidated at first because I've seen jiu-jitsu fights before and wasn't 100% sure what to expect. But our expectations were well managed and I got comfortable fast. Coming to class is always the highlight of my day now. It is an amazing atmosphere for beginners, especially woman whom is interested in fitness or self-defence.”
