Their karate school is named Fourways Martial Arts Academy.

“As a mother, I recognised an opportunity for children during the school holidays to engage in an enriching physical activity for 45 mins instead of scrolling through digital platforms. This would bring relief to mothers who have run out of ideas to keep the children entertained in the holidays.

Biagioni opened the holiday club to all participants with the aim of giving the children in the area an opportunity to discover the immerse enjoyable aspects of karate which develops the body and mind.
