1st Dan black belt

My interest in martial arts began many years ago. After moving to London, I wanted to learn practical self-defence techniques which work on the street. After many years of practising Aikido, I developed a passion to teach and educate others. I am a writer and academic based in London who has a background in kickboxing and wrestling.


I was always attracted to martial arts, practical self-defence, and the simplicity and elegance of Aikido moves. It was important for me to be able to cause maximum damage with minimal effort, and mostly (being a girl who doesn't specialise in weight lifting) using my size and flexibility against a larger opponent. I love the technicality of the self-defence techniques we teach, and seeing how every moment is connected to the next one. It helped me boost my self confidence when I needed it the most. 


1st Dan black belt

I have had an interest in martial arts ever since I was a little kid watching Jackie Chan movies in the 90s. I started training in Aikido 12 years ago and have also trained in weapons, gymnastics and boxing. I thoroughly enjoy teaching martial arts and sharing the knowledge that has helped me to stay safe over the years.
