The personal blog of Nicola Avery, trying to be a martial artist, currently working at Roehampton University in London. I have also volunteered as an agent for an MP candidate in West Oxfordshire, helped with a community lavender project and various online projects
I wrote a blog for 10 years, it is time for a new chapter elsewhere. I have trained to 1st Dan in taekwondo, gave it up to spend more time to fight against destruction of the NHS, now trying to re-establish a balance. I know some movements in taichi. I am working with my instructor to develop inclusive / adaptive martial arts and will complete a coaching course in early 2017.
I write about non martial art related stuff too. If it appeals a) follow & b) talk
