After having her nose broken at school, Sally’s parents decided that she should start Taekwon-Do to defeat bullying and to gain confidence. Taekwon-Do became much more than a means to beat bullying but has now become a massive part of her life. She has over 20 years of experience in Taekwon-Do and experience in other martial arts such as Karate, Kickboxing, MMA and Aikido. She achieved her adult 1st Degree Black Belt in 2003 under Master Hopwood 8th Degree and achieved her 2nd and 3rd Degrees in 2004 and 2006 respectively; She successfully graded to an ITF 4th Degree in 2012 under Master Wolf 8th Degree & 5th Dan in 2018.

Sally has attained a number of medals in patterns, sparring and destruction in national competitions and various other awards during her time training including GTI Competitor of the Year for patterns in 2008 and 2011/2012, She is also a two time World Championship medallist. She is a fully qualified Umpire, Referee and Instructor and after undertaking her 1st Degree Black Belt it became apparent to Sally that her vocation in Taekwon-Do is to teach.  Sally has also been featured in the Totally Taekwon-Do magazine (http://www.totallytkd.com/) and holds the Sports Worcester Coach of the Year Award 2015.
