The Vision of Active Launceston is to improve the health and wellbeing of the Launceston Community through physical activity.
We have been paddling since February 2008 and are based at the North Esk Rowing Club opposite the Seaport. We enjoy all the facilities at the club, including excellent gym equipment and a restaurant and bar. From this situation we can easily access the Cataract Gorge, the upper reaches of the Tamar River and the lower reaches of the North Esk River. We are also able to launch the ‘Tamar Tittilator’ from various ramps along the Tamar, especially at George Town, Hillwood and Gravelly Beach, where we receive terrific support from the locals
The club is named ‘DANTI’ (Dragons Abreast Northern Tas Inc.) We hold meetings at the rowing club on the second Tuesday of each month, after paddling. Meetings are open to all members.
Many of our members are part of the North Esk Dragon Boat Club - https://www.facebook.com/NorthEskDragonBoatClub/

No-Gi Grappling is a sport focused martial art that also builds effective self-defence skills & is great for fitness.
No-Gi Grappling combines the attributes of Jiu Jitsu & Wrestling in an attempt to maintain a dominant position at all times while working for submissions (joint-locks & chokeholds) to force an opponent to submit.
Unlike other forms of Jiu-Jitsu, No-Gi Grappling is performed without the traditional uniform called the ""Gi""; therefore the techniques are modified to accommodate the inability to control an opponent by the Gi. This style of grappling is a key feature of MMA competitions like the popular UFC and other cage fighting tournaments.
No-Gi tends to be a faster paced game which is great for fitness and conditioning. Our No-Gi Grappling class is focused on the fundamentals of the No-Gi game and is suitable for all levels.
