The impressive thing is that our kind of family is entirely void of the conflict often associated with families.
An example of the depth of the bonds shared between the instructors and students, is the fact that many former members of the KB Family have gravitated back towards the virtual KB dojo. For example, people who moved to Germany, USA, Belgium, South Africa and beyond, have returned, now that the classes are online.
Kelly was particularly moved recently, when one of the school's former instructors / black belts, Debra Ross, made a monumental return to her live classes - welcome back Debra Ross!!!! Equally tremendous was Dawn Thorpe's return, who also used to teach 15 years ago, but moved to Brighton. Actually, it was a particularly special night as one of Kelly's training peers, Richard Devaney also made an appearance. Additionally, Jenny Whinney returned to training just 2 months after giving birth - what a great week that was!
All ex-members are most welcome to return to the fold and meet the current generation of the KB family. From one generation to the next, the ethos of the school remains - that of being kind, respectful, positive and striving to be the best martial artist you can be at any given time. That's why so many of our members have been training with us for over a decade, several entered their 18th year of training this year!
