What people say about sensei Harrison
Sensei Harrison has been working with my son for 5 years, he is a fantastic role model to the kids, good fun and a great teacher
I have two quite shy little girls, who both lack in self confidence. I had read previously how something like martial arts, can really help with confidence amongst many other things. So when Harrison started up classes in our village, we went along. I didn’t think for a minute that I would get my girls through the door, let alone join in. My eldest joined in straight away, then eventually my youngest did and they haven’t looked back since.
Sensei Harrison is the reason the girls took to karate so easily. He has always been extremely welcoming and friendly, making the classes fun and enjoyable. In the words of Amelia and Imogen “he is funny, nice, kind and a good teacher.
