Instructor Ellie Hayes

Ori-MAUL social samurai


Ellie joined MAUL in May 2017. Since then, she has quite simply shown up. Through thick and thin, from white belt to brown-red belt, Ellie has consistently dedicated herself to helping whoever she can in MiNi-MAUL and training all she can in and out of the do-jang with Ori-MAUL. In particular, her efforts with the OWLs (first three belts) as part of MiNi-MAUL made it possible for the club to grow and still give individual attention to its students.

A former dancer, current communications specialist and volunteer ninja, Ellie’s wry humour, unshakable resilience and impeccable attention to detail as Social Samurai for Ori-MAUL has driven the entire club forward.
