      Callum is off overseas finishing his degreee at the moment but usually takes the Tuesday night pad work classes and makes sure everyone goes home feeling like they have worked hard and achieved an increase in their skill level. He also has taken the Woolston Boxfit class before hand and has a popular following of those who like to double down by doing two classes back to back and 'feel the burn" that high repetition pad work brings.
