Anxious Black Belt

I aim to promote Karate as a tool for improving physical and mental health. I am a dedicated practitioner of the art of the empty hand and have been for over 25 years.

I provide inclusive martial arts tuition and work with various clients and organisations. My maxim is:

“Strong and caring people are the pillars of society, and Karate helps to cultivate them.”
