Beyond the moniker, I'm here to share a personal journey—more than just mastering martial arts, it's about overcoming bullying and finding strength in vulnerability. Today, my mission is to guide you through the transformative power of self-defense, a journey we undertake together.

BiteBack stems from the shadows of bullying, a profound experience that fuels my commitment to empowering others. Seven years immersed in Krav Maga and 3 in WingChun, sculpted not just my physique but a passion for transforming lives.

This isn't just about mastering techniques; it's about reclaiming power and nurturing confidence.

There has been many other times where I’ve gone on nights out and men have tried to grab me when I’ve not been comfortable and with BiteBack training I’ve been able to get out of a persons grip and keep myself safe. I’ve also been able to pass my knowledge to other women which has later helped them in their own situation. With bite back training, you don’t only get an amazing trainer but also got a person who will listen to you when you need someone to talk to and advise from with no judgment.
