What Parents Have Said
Of all the coaches my sons have had over the last 13 years, Sensei Dilshan has had the most impact. His integrity and respect are obvious in the way he instructs his students, inspiring them to want to do their best – not only on the mat, but in their school life and home life.
Dilshan has certainly been an incredible positive influence to my daughter as he always managed to push all kids in his class to achieve their best through his real love for teaching. A truly extraordinary talented natural coach. Thank you for everything.
Sensei Dilshan knows how to relate to children, and is very considerate to the shy and small. He also knows when to be firm, and doesn't let the odd disruptive or distracted child spoil things for the others. I would highly recommend Sensei Dilshan as a teacher for all ages. I wish him the very best with his own dojo.
Thank you Dilshan for your efforts with our son.
We have had the utmost pleasure to trust in Dilshan for 2 years and to see our boys blossom not only in technical skill work but confidence and focus and it is for this reason we followed Dilshan to his classes all around Brisbane!
“He is amazing and he helps everybody be their best.” - Sarah.
“He is always smiling and encouraging, and makes classes fun and sometimes you forget that you are actually learning.” - Maya.
“He is patient and brings the best out of his students both
young and old.” - Dan.
“His approach to teaching is that he hopes the kids will never need to use a self defence technique in their lives but they will need to use character traits like integrity, perseverance and discipline, every day.” - Parent of children.
There has not been a time that Lach didn't want to go to lessons (twice a week) and Dilshan has helped to create a passion for marital arts that I know Lach will continue for years to come.
In Lach's own words, "He's a great sensei with an even better sense of humour".
As a parent of a child who has had significant health challenges and vision impairment, I am incredibly grateful to Dilshan for the positive impact he has had on Lachlan's life. His level of energy, positivity, knowledge, skill, patience and kindness has been consistent every single time and I always had every faith that Lach was in the safest of hands.
His way of connecting with my son who is an introvert by nature, was impressive. From a parent’s perspective, I observed that he was incredibly patient with children, regardless of their personalities or attention span. As an instructor, Sensei Dilshan is very knowledgeable, motivating & welcoming.
As a person, he is compassionate, courteous and very professional. He communicates very well with children and adults. We were dismayed to see him leaving. Every student or groups working with Sensei Dilshan will benefit from his exceptional combination of expertise, interpersonal communication and teaching skills.
