Instructor - Sensei Beaty Bennett

Godan Ho Grade

Beaty Sensei began her career in karate after marrying her husband Shihan David Bennett. She has visited Japan many times. The first was in 1987 when she gained her Shodan grading under Soke Hoshu Ikeda. Her happy go lucky nature have made her a favourite with our friends in Japan.

Throughout the years Beaty Sensei has competed in many tournaments entering as many as she could in order to gain the experience you can only get by putting your skills to the test. She has won at many events and her favourite placing was when she beat her husband David in the Shiwari (board breaking) competition.

Still teaching classes at the New Lynn Dojo on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays.
