The personal blog of Nicola Avery, trying to be a martial artist, currently working at University of Surrey.
Please note that no current capacity for new project work.
I’m a trained 1 Dan British level 2 Taekwondo WTF instructor but coach only as relief instructor when needed due to existing commitments.
I am studying Environmemt & Science with Open University leading to equivalent of first year of BSc.
I am also continuing to learn Russian slowly.
I currently work as a volunteer for a local food bank and local food float market stall.
In March 2019 I will begin local eco-volunteering on river restoration and stream biological testing.
I volunteered last summer with Great Baikal Trail in Siberia, on a stream restoration project on Olkhon Island, Lake Baikal.
Projects page list current and past project work.
I am opinionated and have previously volunteered as an agent for an MP candidate in West Oxfordshire. I occasionally flee to help with a community lavender project in Carshalton.
I write about non martial art related stuff too. If it appeals a) follow & b) talk
