Kheira has been training at Elkai for 21 years and has been a dan grade for 12 of those.
Kheira has competed for the Higashi National Team in both kata and Kumite at the national level and has won numerous events, however competing has not been her first love. The sense of community and support she has gotten from the club continues to bring her back after moving away to further her career.
Kheira has continued to teach at many of the club’s locations and has become the safeguarding lead for Elkai Karate. Training with Elkai is the best way that she has found to maintain her fitness, keep her motivated and relieve the stress of her work and study life.
