Martial Arts has been a large part of my life since I started training in Karate in1990. Although I am a support coach in mixed classes, my focus is teaching Women and Children self defence.
I've always been involved in sport of some sort and learning a Martial Art was something new to try. I trained for a few years in Shotokan Karate then motherhood meant that I took some time out. I returned to training in 2004 and not long after I was awarded my 1st Dan black belt.
In 2011 I began training in Krav Maga (an Israeli combat system) and in 2013 became the first Female in the UK and Europe to train as full-time support coach in CT707 Israeli Krav Systems.
As a registered child minder of 13 years and becoming a qualified netball coach, I have been able to train and work with both Women and Children on a regular basis. With this experience combined with my training background, I offer reality based self defence classes specifically for Women and Children.
