Paula Brooks

Instructor & Welfare Officer

I decided early on that I wanted to be a part of the GKI Karate family – to get fitter, gain confidence and make new friends for myself.

About Us

We practise traditional Okinawan Goju Ryu, which focuses on effective close-quarters fighting. We enjoy tournaments, but believe that the true heart of karate is self defence.
