Senpai Jesca Leibbrandt
Belt: 1st Dan
Has 10 years experience in Kyokushin karate. She trained in Cape Town, South Africa, before joining the Northern Beaches dojo 2 years ago.
“I believe that karate is for everyone and I would encourage anyone to try it at least once. Apart from the immediate fitness gains, you build camaraderie and friendships through training together as well as mental resilience and the Kyokushin spirit of never giving up.”

Senpai Davy has over 20 years experience in Kyokushin Karate and has trained and competed in both Australia and Japan. For the past 5 years, he has been an instructor at the Manly Fight Gym.
“Training in Karate has not only kept me fit and healthy, but it has also developed my mental toughness and provided me with the confidence to embrace every challenge in life. I would love for others to achieve the same positive outcomes that I have through karate training and at the same time have fun in doing so.”
