I know how difficult it can be finding the right Martial Arts School.
I remember when I was a child feeling anxious about going to a Martial Arts class and being sent to “toughen up”. I wasn’t sure if I had what it would take to succeed at first as I wasn’t what you would define as a “fighter” and needed to develop more confidence. Little did I know that by starting Martial Arts it would take me all around the globe competing and winning fights and World Titles in places as far as the Philippines and Thailand. I am honoured to be one of the most highly decorated female martial artists in the UK and have been inducted into various Hall of Fames most notably USA Hall of Fame. The greatest honour I have ever had was being nominated by one of my pupils to run with the 2012 Olympic Torch for the work I do in empowering women. This is a memory I will never forget.
When I opened Kane Academy in 2006 I wanted to make a difference in the local community. I made a commitment to serving my pupils and helping those like myself (“non stereotypical types”), develop confidence and become empowered through martial arts mind and body training. Pupils do not have to become world class fighters by attending classes, many in fact come to transform their lives outside of martial arts whether it be dealing with school bullies or just gaining the confidence to make that job change or follow their dreams. I am so excited to be able to help more people around the world from 2020 with the launch of my new Online Academy and live academy.
