The parents were entertained by the juniors fighting in stages with elements of ju-jitsu, karate and judo, as well as defence work on pads, kicking and punching.

The seniors asked the Mayor to be involved in their break fall demonstration by laying on the floor as they leaped over him. The parents then were asked to pick random moves and call them out, and the students demonstrated them showing defence moves and disabling finishing locks.
