My kickboxing adventure started when I was 15. I always loved the thought of being able to fight correctly and being able to defend myself if ever needed.
I loved martial arts from a very young age and was always a physical kind of person, enjoying playing outdoors and playing sports. At the age of 16, I was then able to enrol myself into kickboxing. I was instantly engaged in the sport and I loved it!
From this point on, I decided that I was going to progress through the belts and look forward to competing.
After a year of competing in local tournaments and on the circuit, I heard that the club was going to attend the World Championships in Canada. I had to be there!
My uncle got me a part-time job in food retail and I starting saving every penny for the Worlds. My beginner status meant that I was not in a position to win such an event but I knew that the experience would be invaluable. Seeing the best-of-the-best perform, gave me a huge boost and gave me an overwhelming surge of anticipation to get back onto the mats asap.
From the Worlds, I then went on to compete alot more whilst working my way up through the belts.
I never stopped enjoying it.
