With roles model like Master Rob I am so glad Max trains here. I wouldn’t put him anyway else.” Max’s mum.

Your school and coaching are the best, I am so happy that my son Hongi Eum was accepted into your school. Hongi is so much more happier with his Taekwondo Training now.

My daughter and infact all my children have trained with Master Rob and have been there for many years. My daughter is now a 3rd degree blackbelt, my son a 3rd degree blackbelt and 1st degree MMA, my other son a 1st degree blackbelt and my youngest a yellowbelt. I think it says it all about the school and Master Rob it is so good for all the children. I know my children are higher or the same rank as many other school teachers.

I have been a teacher at a few different Martial Arts Schools in the Illawarra I have my own kids in Master Robs school. I tell my friends that i no way let my kids train with anyone else. I have far more knowledge then most instructors and been in a few styles. I go on to say that Master Rob know 20 times more them me. They are just the best.

Rob you were a great coach and instructor that my daughter (5x AUS Rep) was fortunate to have  had. You did everything for her and she has since represented Australia many times.
