Recently I trained at Sinbi Muay Thai in Phuket, Thailand
Have trained at Reflex Centre for 13 years, and is teaching the Muay Thai kickboxing and Circuit class
I started at Reflex Martial Arts Centre in 2007, attending the women’s kickboxing classes to gain some fitness and try something new. I was made to feel so welcomed and I really enjoyed the classes and the people I trained with. Over the years and after having two children, I decided to increase my training and focus on some personal fitness goals. I learnt so much from my instructors, particularly Master Dominic Lavelle and Master Rose Lavalle. With their guidance and support I was able to achieve my Combative Black Belt in 2016. During this time I enjoyed learning so many different styles that Reflex has to offer, including Boxing, Muay Thai kickboxing, Brazilian Jujitsu ,Stick fighting and MMA.
Today I continue to enjoy my training, as well as now teaching other students. I was honoured to be able to have the opportunity to share my experiences and skills. I instruct a variety of classes from Boxing, Kickboxing and Weights & Fitness circuit classes. I’m passionate about helping others achieve their individual goals. I encourage anybody, no matter what level of fitness or experience to give it a go. I’m proud to be part of the Reflex team!
