Danni started training in Shotokan karate in 2001 at the age of 15. She gained her 1st Dan in 2006, 2nd in 2010 and 3rd in 2013. She competed in kata and team kata in many national open competitions and had great success.

She met Sensei John Hurley  when she decided to look in on his lesson at her school and within 5 minutes had her gi on and was training! The rest is history…

She finds Wado Ryu to not be as pretty as Shotokan but much more practical and loves learning a different style and the challenges it brings!

She was awarded her Higashi 2nd Dan in 2014 and her 3rd Dan in 2017, both by Sensei Peter Spanton.
