BSC (Hons) Community Health & BSC (Hons) Nursing.
PC Karate Academy Assistant Coach,
Referee & Judge
Started training aged 17 and has been training with us for over 20 years.
I was pretty competitive and physical by nature and I thought, and still do, that Karate was an ideal sport to develop both of these attributes and by so doing increase my confidence to be able to look after myself. I achieved my 1st Dan Black Belt in 1993, which was one of the proudest but hardest moments in my karate career. During the following years I had two children and trained right up until the birth of both. In October 2003 I achieved what I considered to be the most physically and emotionally demanding accolade, my 3rd Dan, from my sensei Paul Campbell 6th Dan who has taught me attitude and develpment of my emotional strength and through the control of these I am able to lead others. My real ambition is is to ensure that my children, both girls, are able through karate to demonstrate confidence, and develop their self-esteem and the ability to defend themselves.
