Martial Arts has not only changed my life - It has become my life.
I first discovered Martial Arts/Rob Locks Academy in 2005 when my daughter began training Karate and Keysi Fighting Method. After a couple of years sitting on the side line , in 2007 I began to train Karate which became and still is my greatest passion.
I progressed through the grades with the help of Rob and the fantastic Academy Instructors and I achieved 1st Dan Black in 2009. With more training, I reached 2nd Dan and finally 3rd Dan Black Belt.
I began coaching Karate when I reached 1st Dan, a wonderful opportunity to help young people and adults to meet their full potential in Karate.
I also train a variety of other Arts at the Academy such as Muay Thai Boxing where I have just achieved my 1st Dan Black (Mar 2017) and Jeet Kune Do (JKD) plus Keysi Fighting Method (KFM). I began coaching Muay Thai in 2016 and I love to see students develop and become strong.
I also met my husband at Rob Locks Academy – Barry Houghton, a fellow Instructor. We have been married since 2014….obviously there is no competition in our house !!!
Martial Arts has not only changed my life- it has become my life.
