Training History

Katalin had always wished to learn karate but never had a chance to do in her earlier years. She always wanted to feel, live the spirit, the atmosphere of karate, as in her words felt it owned a part of her soul.

In January 2014 she signed up her two children, Roland and Krisztofer to the classes in South Ockendon.

While sitting at the edge of the dojo and watched the kids training, Katalin says she was totally impressed by Sensei Richard’s teaching and instantly felt she had to be in there training too.

After just one thoroughly enjoyable lesson she fell in love with karate and has been training with great enthusiasm ever since along with her husband Laszlo and children who are still training hard with her today.

Katalin assists at the South Ockendon dojo.
