Jess first started karate at the age of 6 after seeing an advert at Total Fitness Gym. Over the past 10 years Jess has had the privilege of training with multiple inspirational world champions and instructors, for example Ronnie Christopher, Elwib Hall and more recently Luca Valdesi, Junior Leferve and various world level athletes. Throughout her time at the club Jess has grown in confidence, achieving her 3rd dan and currently teaching at St Mary’s in Radcliffe. Additionally, Jess has travelled to many different places to train and partake in completions including Madrid, Ireland and Belgium. Jess is now a 16 year old college student who still has a strong passion for karate, not only for the sport but also for the social togetherness and the skills Jess has acquired such as self defence, teaching and respect.
