NYUBD: It's an art

Laura Grigg
Jasmine Ng

We have Andrew Williamson, New Zealand's second highest ranked male in Aikido (a Japanese martial art) for episode 9 of Not Your Usual Ball Drop.

Andrew is 6th Dan (or 6th black belt), and is also a Shihan (instructor), and established Aikido Shinryukan Canterbury in 1990 with his wife Irene Williamson. 

Did we mention Irene is also 6th Dan AND the highest ranked female in New Zealand?!
