Whilst at secondary school and university I used to play football, hockey and a stint of bodybuilding, but never martial arts. When I finished university, I qualified as a secondary school teacher. After finishing my degree, we (myself and hubby) decided to leave Portugal and come to UK where I started to work at Heathrow Airport. I got married and had a daughter.
“I love training at Carpe Diem. It’s always different. Yet you have the support of older members and the trainer themselves. “
Currently I’m not training as much as I would like due family and work commitments. I can only do a few classes a month. But I’m not giving up.
As a result of training with Carpe Diem I have become physically stronger… both my confidence and ability has improved. I managed to do a grading and achieved P1. My goal is to do one grading a year.
Krav Maga is not just self defence, its a way of life. It changes the way you do your things and you go about in your daily life. You become aware of your surroundings, not paranoid, just aware. And you behave accordingly in order to prevent you ending up in dangerous situations.
After all these years of training, I feel great and want to achieve even more.
