3rd Degree Black Belt, Dip CAM, CIPR
I was so scared by a road rage attack that could have turned from a dent on my car to a dent on my head, that I promised myself that I would take steps to make sure I was never in that position again.
Soon after the attack, I realised that my fitness instructor, Tony Lloyd, was also a martial arts instructor, and I started classes in kickboxing. Being an experienced gymnast I found my fitness and flexibility to be an advantage in training, but the sparring side of things was much more challenging. However, with a great instructor and wonderful class mates I stuck with it and achieved my black belt several years later.
Now as an instructor, I enjoy passing on the knowledge and encouraging confidence and boosting self-esteem in my students, particularly children. In a fun, yet energetic class structure students can gain fitness, confidence and peace of mind.
