Sherry began her martial arts training only recently.

She would be the first to share her story to try and help others.

She first came as a parent of three juniors who train at the academy and after a car accident left her unable to walk properly, she gained weight to almost 22 stone.

Determined to make a change she decided to try a class.

Since then, Sherry has lost over half her body weight, has medaled in National open tournaments and has become one of the most respected figures in the Academy.

She trains religiously twice sometimes three times a day, everyday during the week, often outworking pro fighters!

And when she is not working out herself, you can find Sherry helping as our assistant junior Boxing and Kickboxing coach or helping clients with one to one tuition as a fully qualified Reps 3 Personal Trainer.

Sherry is also the clubs designated welfare officer.
