Sensei Michelle Perry
Michelle's Karate career began in 1988 and she took Shodan (1st Dan) in 1992. In 1995 she graded Nidan (2nd Dan), in 2000 Sandan (3rd Dan) and five years later Yondan (4th Dan). Michelle is a member of Jin Sei Kai's executive committee and Secretary to the Association. "The majority of my classes are aimed at children or adult females, including those who have special needs", says Michelle. "Karate, taught correctly, is great for improving dexterity and overall co-ordination, and for encouraging teamwork and self-discipline. But, perhaps the best thing about Karate is that there is always something to improve upon or learn and for me, as a teacher, to pass on" to my students.
