A new karate academy lead by an international champion is coming to Croydon.

Ciara has represented Ireland and England at international competitions and regularly travels to Okinawa, Japan, to train with some of the world’s most senior instructors.
Speaking about her own experiences, Ciara said: “When I started karate it was in a rural town in Ireland and I had no idea about where Karate could take me.
"Competition took me to places that most of my classmates at school had only seen on TV.
Places like Russia, Bermuda, Romania and many more, but behind all of this was hours of hard work packing grocery bags in shopping centres to fund these travels and so the pressure to do well was immense.
I have made wonderful friends learned about many different customs and cultures and have seen so many different ways of life.”
Now Ciara is opening a dojo, based from the Ark Oval Primary Academy, our website is www.kokorokarateacademy.com and contact number is 07920195675.
