I started karate because my best friend dragged me, I was going through a bad time and she wanted to show me her passion.

Karate is a good way to forget about the stresses of normal life and is very different from my day job as a zoo keeper. It has helped me greatly to regain the strength and flexibility I had when I was a gymnast years ago.

I never thought 3 years down the line I would be the proud owner of a brown belt and for it to be my passion now too. When I joined the club I was just looking for a distraction, now I feel like I’ve found family.
