The seminar included fitness drills, flexibilty exercises, lots of kicking drills and some individual sparring and coaching personally with Jade.

Instructor Danielle Hickey said: “It was such a privilege to be invited to such an event and I was so proud of my students who had such a great time with Jade.”
