Charlotte Thomas

Charlotte Thomas from the Lee Matthews Military Martial Arts branch in Leeds.

I have been training since the age of 8 and Martial Arts has always been my biggest passion in life. I opened up the branch in Leeds in September 2009 and haven't looked back since. We have also just opened our own full time Academy so that the students can enjoy the advantages of training in their own facilities. I am very approachable and will help to get the best out of all students. We aim to run as a family and get together for social events for both children and adults.
