“Learning martial arts is not about being the best; it’s about being better than you were yesterday”.
Anne-Maree’s martial arts career began under the watchful eye of our very own Mario San Giorgio, head karate and Muay Thai Kickboxing instructor. Her passion and dedication to the art has come on in leaps and bounds (quite literally) from there. An active and adventurous sportsperson, Anne-Maree took on what she thought to be the ‘boys’ domain’ of karate and Jiu-jitsu, but soon discovered that at ICC there were as many women as men! Anne-Maree is now a Karate-Jitsu Black Belt, Muay Thai Kickboxing Brown Belt and an integral part of the ICC training team.
“Strength doesn’t come from what you can do; strength comes from overcoming the things you once thought you couldn’t do.”
That’s Ann-Maree’s motto. She brings her immense enthusiasm to every session, not to mention an excellent rapport with our younger set through her Degree in Early Childhood Education.
