SUSAN ALDRIDGE

BLACK BELT 1ST DAN

RACHEL HARRISON

BLACK BELT 2nd DAN

I started my training with Kensho Karate Club in 2007. In 2010 I competed in a National Championships winning bronze in pairs kata. I achieved my 1st Dan in 2011, one of the hardest but best things I've ever done. In 2013 I competed in the National Open Championships winning bronze in team kata. In September 2014 I was invited to work  as an instructor for Kensho Extended School Services teaching karate to students 5 years and above in schools in the Gateshead area.

I started training in 1999 at the age of 7. I won my first medal in 2000 at Sunderland, and several since. I have competed around the country and abroad too.

 

I was awarded my 1st Dan in October 2003 and my 2nd Dan in May 2008.

 

I joined the JKS England Kumite team in January 2014, and the Kata team in January 2015.
