About the Webmistress
I started training at age
7 in Shotokan Karate. At the time, I had just seen the movie "The Karate
Kid" and bugged my parents enough to let me take lessons. I stopped training
for 6 years while going to highschool to concentrate on my studies.
After graduating from high-school,
I started studying LTKKA kenpo karate. I trained hard in this style for 3 years
before moving away to Victoria.
I continued training in
kenpo and taught a little at one of the local schools. After the school closed
down, I took a brief hiatus from the martial-arts then briefly took up Wing
I have now been training
in kickboxing for about a year. It is amazing to see how many women there are
in my class. Right now, we outnumber the guys.
I am hoping to use this
web site as a gathering place for women martial-artists or women looking to
get into some form of martial art.
