Nidan 2nd DAN

INSTRUCTOR AND FIRST AIDER

At the age of 7, I joined the JIYU RYU Karate Club in New Eltham, under the tuition of Sensei John Fewin's. The experience was daunting at first (being surrounded by frankly rather highly skilled individuals!), but with the excellent teaching and the friendly atmosphere, my confidence and skill quickly improved up to this day. In 2005 due to the closure of Sensei John Fewin's Club, I started training with Sensei Mike Harwood where I earned my 2nd DAN Black Belt in 2010 at the age of 18 and continue to take an active role in the club as one of the younger instructors, getting involved in teaching and growth of the club.

Karate has been an integral part of my personal development, both physically and mentally; without it, I would be a very different person.
