introducing Miss Emma Elmes; world renowned Martial Arts Performer and Actress

At Kaizen Ryu we like to recognise and reward students for their efforts and commitment.

This is an opportunity for the club to give something back, and for the students to train and see some high level martial arts with other karate-ka in a vibrant and exciting environment.

This year we are privileged to have in attendance Miss Emma Elmes; a professional martial arts performer and actress.

She has been featured in a number of Music Videos, Films and TV Shows including CBBC and Britain's Got Talent. Her skills and list of accolades are something to be admired, and gain inspiration from. She is renowned for her extreme flexibility... and her incredible 'scorpion kick'!
