Helen has been training with Matt Hudd since she was seven. She is one of two people to hold the rank of 2nd dan in the kickboxing syllabus and has started training in the Kung Fu and Tai Chi classes to further her knowledge in the martial arts.
Since Helen has been training, it has become a bit of a family thing. Both Helen's parents train at the Academy. Her mum Mary has gained her 1st dan black belt in kickboxing and dad, Clive has started his training in the Tai Chi and Kung Fu.
