Lyn trained with  sensei Helen Pree and Tony Solley at Newham, finding karate in her early 20's. She instantly fell in love with Karate and it has been a dream come true to open a dojo in Beckton.   Although unable to continue her training due to medical reasons, Lyn is passionate about making  the art of karate available to all, and to enable an avenue for people to achieve their goals whatever they may be, no matter peoples background, age, or ability.
