Hi, I'm Debbie, the childrens instructor at Sheffield Shotokan Karate Club. When I first came to Karate with my son I was a "sit on the side and watch" type of person, but Karate was always something I wanted to learn so, I joined up and trained hard to get my black belt. When I take the kids class I try to make it fun forthem to learn karate whilst learning techniques that could keepthem safe. Karate helps them to keep fit and gives themso much more confidence."
