I have been studying karate since 2001. I started when I was 31 years old.
3rd Degree Black Belt
Most Memorable Moment:
My most memorable moment was when I graded for my 2nd Degree Black Belt alongside my son, Tyler who was grading for his Adult Black Belt.
Most Memorable Instructor:
I have had the privilege of studying with some amazing instructors. My favourite would be Renshi Guy, followed by Sensei Gerry as a very close 2nd favourite. Sensei Rick is also a strong influence. I I am so grateful to have gained some of my best friends through the Elite Martial Arts Family.
Signature Karate Move:
Back Stance Shuto or Defensive Reverse Punch
My biggest struggle is trying to juggle home life with karate.
My biggest accomplishment is earning my first black belt.
Why did you join karate?
I joined karate in hopes it would help be de-stress.
Long Term Goals:
I would love to get back into the shape I was in when I graded for my 1st Degree Black Belt.
