Rhoda Yates

Ebbw Vale, UK

I have been a Teacher of Secondary MFL and Social Sciences (16 years). I have taught in the UK, China, Kazakhstan, Switzerland and Thailand. I began Shotokan Karate at the age of 17 (50 years ago). I trained 10 years in Canada to Shodan (only missing my Nidan by lack of time in rank). I trained in Buenos Aires and Didcot Worcestershire, where I helped with the Didcot Karate Club (training weekends at the Oxford University Club with Mr. Ohta). In China I took up Kickboxing (Japanese arts are frowned upon) and learned Muay Thai. I trained in Thailand too.

Only my Shodan from the JKA

A little competition Kata and Kumite in Canada. I have trained with Master Nakayama & Masahiko Tanaka & Minoru Saeki in Ottawa.

English is my Native, also French, Spanish and a little Russian
