Last Auckland North Combined Training Before Nationals

Today the Auckland North squad assembled in Warkworth for the last combined squad training prior to the Nationals in two weeks time.

Guest instructor Mohamed Azzaoui (above) has been working with the Northland members of the squad and came along to take part of the 4 hour training session today. He is the current World Boxing Association African Champion and has travelled the world over the last few years as a professional boxer.

The squad formed up at the start of training.

Here is a selection of the images that I took today. I've kept the best aside to post over the next few days.

I think that today I captured some of my best casual portrait style high-key images ever. The image above of Sam Couling is a taste of what's to come so please come back for more over the next few days...
