Great day at the Moorebank Grand Reopening

About 100 people came throughout the day and helped us celebrate the Grand Reopening of our Moorebank MMA, BJJ and Thai Kickboxing gym. The rain held out and everyone enjoyed the free BBQ, took a tour of our new gym and the kids enjoyed the free jumping castle. We had special guests Craig Kelly, MP who is the federal member for Hughes and the Mayor of Liverpool City Council Ned Mannoun who toured the gym, gave a speech to everyone there and even got down and dirty and took a few action shots. Check out some photos below.
