The truth is that up until 2017, my life looked very different. I was an anxious, depressed human with little to no self-worth. As far as I was concerned, I was not good enough and would never amount to anything. I battled with eating disorders and disordered eating, and at times wondered why I was even on this earth. Then my life changed!
I had been training in Krav for 7 years at the time. Even during classes, I was afraid of being pulled up to the front of the class for demonstration as the negative self-talk would be constant – “you are not good enough”, “You are a fraud.” Yet somehow, in 2017, I found myself on the General Instructor Course under KMG UK.
Whilst I was doing my Krav Maga instructor course, the head instructor said to me, “you would go further if you didn’t live in your head so much”. These words stung. They stuck, and they forced me to make changes. Uncomfortable changes. Difficult changes. Painful changes. BUT changes that would take my life in a completely new direction.
I started to challenge my old story of who I was and what I was capable of. I began to unpick who I thought I was and my place in the world, and over time a stronger, more confident, more powerful version of myself emerged.
My love for training grew, and I expanded my knowledge into kettlebells and strength training under StrongFirst and became a level 3 personal trainer and nutrition coach.
I now take my experiences and use them to help people in similar situations to me. I champion the underdog, and I know change is possible with hard work and determination. I love people and hate seeing people suffer, so I created a space where people from all walks of life could come and train as equals, free from judgment or expectations on who they should be. To create a space where they could grow and fulfil their true potential.
StandStrong academy is here to support healing, promote growth and guide the transformation from within – we are here to unite and create a better future for ourselves.
I started Krav Maga in Bristol back in 2013 and I have never looked back. It has helped me develop my self belief and over come my past experiences with bullying. It has shown me that my past experiences don’t define me, and I am capable of anything I set my mind towards.
I now love to give back to those that come and train with us.
I am the Head Coach for the under 16 programme and Krav Maga programme within StandStrong.
Alongside the Krav Maga, I have experience in VIP and Close party protection, physical intervention and conflict management training.
I love what we do here at StandStrong – we have created a special community. It really is Bristol most supportive self defence academy.
