We were very excited to have Sam Gilbert as our specialist teacher during November. Sensei Sam has been training inKyokushin/Shinkyokushin karate since the age of eight, and has been one of the most successful full-contact karate competitors Australia has ever produced, winning multiple state and nationaltitles, culminating in a 4th place performance at the 2009 WorldCup in St Petersberg, Russia. Sam retired from international competition following the 2011 World Tournament. Sensei Sam has been teaching the martial art, which he is incredibly passionate about, at several international schools for over thirteen years and has incorporated his classes into Club 360 to give interested children of Tokyo access to his program and provide a permanent base for his school.

All instruction will be supervised by ABC staff and taught at an age appropriate level as well as support our philosophy of hands on, interactive learning. We invite educators from a wide variety of careers and disciplines which could included:
*Please note that our specialist educator program is currently on pause until we deem the risk to be lower to have outside educators at our school. Our teachers will be introducing new careers and disciplines to our students throughout the course of each month and integrating it into their curriculums.
