Sensei Lorraine SESMA Norwich

Sensei Lorraine aka Sensei T 3rd Dan Karate/Taekwondo


Brief Back ground:

I’m originally from the Isle of Wight but moved to Norfolk in 1992.

I started Tae Kwondo in 2001, my son has Asperger’s and I thought it would help him, the instant I walked into the dojo I knew we belonged J. I gained my 1st Dan in 2005, then 2nd in 2007 and finally 3rd in 2010. Looking to broaden my skill set I started Kick boxing in 2011. As well as Martial arts, I have completed two Spartan Sprints, two insane terrains and a Pretty Muddy race.  I joined the park run community in 2015 which keeps me on my toes. Ooh I also did a fire walk in 2002.

When I’m not being active, I like to take my dog on long walks, read fantasy fiction books (love Terry Pratchet) watch films and do a bit of cross stitch.

What do you enjoy most about martial arts?

There’s always something new to learn and something to improve upon, no two classes are ever the same! In Tae Kwondo I especially love Kata and in Kickboxing I love the high energy and fitness levels.

I find being an instructor a very rewarding experience, and it is a privilege to be able to pass on my knowledge and experience J
