Instructor Promotions - September 2020

Instructor We recently held our Annual Instructor Promotions at our AGM. 26 Instructor’s attended the event. Here is my report


I am so proud of these 3 students. All have been training for 12 plus years years and have been part of our Instructor or Storm Team for at least half that time.


This weekend they was promoted within our Team based on a Testing Process, Time Served and by completing a series of tasks.


Tiff Richardson & Kieron Stuart were awarded the rank of Full Instructor, meaning they can teach Little Dragons, Beginner, Intermediate & Advanced Kids plus Adult Kick Boxing.


Their Test involved teaching every class on one specific night but to be honest they both do that regular. At 18 their experience and maturity belies their youth, both have earnt the respect of our Students, their peers and most importantly of all their Seniors.


Both are great role models and product of ACMAC Martial Arts Black Belt Systems, Instructor Program & Competition Team (both Multiple Time World Champions and Multi Disciplined National Champions)


Cieran Ashbridge was awarded the title of Tae Kwon Do Instructor and also Senior Black Belt Leader in the Kids MSMA system to go alongside his Assistant Instructor qualifications in Little Dragons, Kick Boxing & Adult MSMA.


He is super dedicated, we worked out he has helped out in around 800-1000 classes since starting on the Team. We are all pushing him to be the best version of himself as he looks to add the Kids Instructor levels to his CV in the future.
