I have trained with Kim for several years and found her to be a fantastic teacher, role model and generally awesome! Throughout my own karate training she was always an inspiration to train hard and excel as a woman in martial arts. She both demonstrates and teaches a real resilience, taking self-defence and personal safety to a reachable level for students, whatever their abilities. Her teaching style incorporates necessary realism but is also great fun – you will learn invaluable skills under a patient and skilled instructor.’

‘I had the pleasure of being trained by Kim in karate for almost 5 years, over which time she took me from complete beginner – with no prior experience – to blackbelt. Throughout this time her instruction was invaluable. Her deep knowledge of martial arts, careful attention to how its techniques can be applied in real life situations, and patient mentoring meant I always felt pushed but never unsafe. Thanks to her teaching I have gained not just a blackbelt but greater self-confidence, self-discipline and a mental resilience that I can use in all situations.
I would highly recommend her as a teacher for anyone looking to explore self-defence, whether as a complete beginner or at more advanced levels.’

‘I have known Kim since I started training as a beginner in karate in 2012. As an instructor, she has always been very supportive and has encouraged me to find effective techniques for my body type. I think this is extremely important and Kim is great at helping students understand which techniques work and which are less likely to work depending on their body type and abilities.’
