The second training session Mr McAteer led was held in a teachers training college in Harare and it was very similar to the first session but the inclusion of self defence however this time there were some clear natural talent within the group. Mr McAteer wasted no time in imparting some of the self defence techniques that he had learnt earlier this year at IIC seminar and again focused on stances and patterns.

Fun was certainly had by all and Mr Evan Brown IV extended his gratitude to Mr McAteer for imparting his knowledge and injecting his enthusiasm into two of his classes adding that Mr McAteer was always welcome to come and teach again in Africa.
