Training History

Nikki first started her training in 2006 when a fellow student brought her along to one of the clubs’ self defence seminars. Soon after she started training and has gone from strength to strength, working her way through the grades, eventually earning herself an invite to join in with the senior class.

After passing her 3rd kyu test at the annual gasshuku in the summer of 2008, Nikki went to complete her instructor accreditation course at the Shi Kon Honbu dojo. Finally, in September that year, Nikki became the interim instructor for Sensei Kim’s class in South Ockendon whilst she was taking time off to look after her newborn son, Cameron.

Since Sensei Kim returned to her dojo, Nikki now assists at various classes throughout Essex
