A strong family values oriented dojo

Farewell and Good Luck in Australia

Two of the Lower Hutt Dojo’s most loved families are leaving the shores of New Zealand this month to live in Australia.

The Calkin’s moving firstly to tropical Darwin and then to cosmopolitan Melbourne, and the Feagaiga’s moving to sunny sunny Brisbane.

We wish both families only the very best for success and happiness over in the land of Oz and hope that you will return some day to join us at Lower Hutt Dojo once again.

All the very best to Maddy and Damian two of our brightest junior karate-ka talents.

OSU and much love to you all
