I first started EKK in 2010 and immediately fell in love with it. I’d always wanted to try karate and by chance I was lucky enough to stumble across Sensei Vaviti and his dojo and I’ve never looked back.
Sensei Vaviti has created an environment where you feel welcome and at ease while simultaneously are pushed to achieve your best. Grading for my shodan was a challenging experience I will always remember and I would never have gotten to where I am today without the support and teachings of everyone in the dojo.
During my 3 years of training I’ve learnt more than I ever thought I would and made friends whom I will always remember.
Getting my shodan marks only the beginning of my Kyokushin journey and I look forward to many more years of training and giving back to the club that has given me so much.
