Hey guys! 

Well first week back at the Den and we have huge numbers already! Mums class and senior class started back on Monday 18th, Kids, Juniors and Fighters classes will start back the week of February 1st. We hope you all had a relaxing and blessed holidays with your loved ones. 

Just a short reflection on 2015 and an update on our plans for Lion’s Den this coming year…

We had a lot of new faces join our Den family last year, and we also said goodbye to a few. Just before Christmas we said farewell to Anthea who had been training with us for over two years as well as going back to school to complete year 13. We wish her all the best for her new journey in Auckland! 

We also had over twenty competitors represent the Lion’s Den across five competitions last year, including a group from our kids class. There are a lot of events lined up for this year including grappling comps, amateur and professional MMA events that we are keen to take fighters along to so they can put into practice everything they have learned at the Den. These events are are great way to interact with other MMA clubs from around the country, as well as seeing what makes us different from other gyms. 

Our food bank is back up and running, so please keep those donations coming so we can go and give to families in need and really make a difference in our community. 

Lastly, we are a registered charity who rely heavily on funding and personal donations. If you would love to get on board and support us by giving a little every week, check out our supporters page and join us in keeping the Den running so we can continue serving the community. 

Lots of fundraising coming up this year, let us know if you are keen to get on board. 

It’s gonna be a busy and exciting year!

God bless guys- see you at training!
