  Black Belts

Sharon Bateman - 1st Dan

Eight years ago I started a different karate style my family to build my confidence up, as I was very shy and nervous person. We changed style to Shotokan three years ago as I was very despondent with the other style.

I came to Shotokan as a purple belt and began training hard under Sensei Tony and Sensei Richard. I have achieved my 1st Dan black belt. I feel very proud to have achieved my black belt, and I plan to train for many years to come, as achieving my black belt is just the start for me.
