Stephanie Grigorakis

I am a 1st Dan Black Belt with a lifelong passion for karate. I began my karate journey at the age of 6, inspired by my father's training experience with Kyoshi Jim Phillips. Initially captivated by martial arts movies, I soon realised the practicality of self-defense and developed a deep interest in the sport.

Karate has profoundly impacted my life, benefiting me both physically and mentally. On a physical level, it has heightened my situational awareness, strengthened my body, and equipped me with the ability to protect myself if necessary. Mentally, karate has instilled discipline, organisation, and a calm demeanour in high-pressure situations, contributing to my success in school and work.

Teaching children is a rewarding experience for me, as it offers mutual growth and learning. Witnessing children enter our dojo with little to no knowledge of the karate style or martial arts in general, I take pride in guiding them to become dedicated and hardworking individuals who fearlessly embrace new challenges. Drawing from my own memories of stepping into the unknown, I prioritise creating a comfortable environment for every child, ensuring they feel welcomed and supported.

As an instructor, I am committed to nurturing the potential within each student, fostering their self-confidence and character development. It brings me great joy to witness their progress and transformation, not only in karate but also in their personal lives.
