3rd Dan Black Belt
Laura is one of our longest serving instructors having started at TKO in 2002. When she joined the club in 2002 her aim was to get fit but she very quickly realised she loved all aspects of the sport from grading to competing and as a team we soon found out that she was a natural at all things kicking!
She started to teach on a regular basis when training for her brown belt in 2006 and has continued to share her wisdom ever since. Not satisfied with her Brown belt she went on to train and was successful in achieving her Black Belt 1st Dan in 2007.
As well as teaching Laura has had numerous light continuous bouts, too many to list. She started the junior program in Ashford and now teaches solely at Maidstone. Laura leads our junior program and takes great pride in seeing the junior team develop and grow in confidence. She continues to teach our adult kickboxing program and our ladies only class which is a great place for ladies to build confidence, work on self defence and fitness.
During all the training, grading and competing she somehow found time to have two children and obtain her Black Belt 2nd Dan in 2014 and undertook her last physical grading in 2018 and is now a black belt 3rd dan
