12-Hour Training Days have become a tradition at A.I.M. Academy!
It’s a fantastic opportunity to spend a day immersed in martial arts training with other like-minded people.
Martial arts instructors from various backgrounds often join our training days to take time out for themselves, invest in their own training, and meet & network with other instructors.
It’s a fun day out for everyone! Lots of laughs, and lots of learning!
This 12-Hour Martial Arts Train-a-Thon is suitable for men & women aged 15 yrs and above, and of any fitness level.
No previous experience necessary. All welcome!
