Name: Star Kent
Age: 16
Year of the Fix: 2016
Location: Great Yarmouth
Campaign: To show people how martial arts can boost confidence

A while ago, I was threatened by someone at a party. They were calling me names and shouting at me, which really affected me.

 

For a while, I was even scared to walk alone at night.

 

That was before I discovered martial arts. Learning the discipline made me more confident in myself because I knew that if I needed to, I could defend myself.

 

My Fixers project is to encourage others to learn self-defence. It’s not only great for your fitness, but can also have massive advantages on mental well-being.

I would like to thank Cameron Bell and Chris Dye for helping me with my Fix.

I would like to thank Self-Defence Trainer, Matt Brown for featuring in the ITV News broadcast.
