Swimming & Karate

About Who...? About Me!

Before we begin, let me tell you a bit about myself. My name is Nikki, and I am a fun loving, energetic, happy teen who has a positive outlook on life and loves to help others. I enjoy spending my free time with family and friends as well as participating in extra curricular activities such as karate, swimming, skiing, and dancing. Specifically though, I have really focussed on karate and swimming and have attained belts and levels to get to the respectable positions that I hold today. Want to learn a few new karate moves or learn how to do the butterfly stroke the right way? Then I suggest that you keep on scrolling down!

Born With Fins

At the very young age of two, my parents made the decision to enroll me into a swimming class, and because I enjoyed swimming so much, this turned into endless hours of swimming lessons. In the end though, I was rewarded by completing the journey through the basic swimming levels by the age of 11 years old and was one of the youngest people in all of Mississauga to achieve my Broze Cross before the age of 13.

How will swimming help your son or daughter?

Is your son or daughter safe near the water? Swimming is a life long skill that could possibly save your life or your child's life. Just two hours of one-on-one swimming lessons learning how to tread water or flutter kick, can keep you afloat in case of an emergency.

Summer jobs? After completing all of the levels in swimming, some swimmers carry on to get their NLS (National Lifeguarding Society) certification, which means that you have become an offical lifeguard in Ontario. This certification gives you the oppurtunity to apply for a summer job at a pool, which is a great way for your child to get a sense of responsibility about maintaining a job, and the money that they earn.

Let's Put Your Chop to the Test!

For the past four years, I have been engaged in a long journey with the goal of becoming a black belt and I am now a half step away from achieving my goal. I have been training with the Mississauga Chito-Ryu Karate Academy learning the traditional Japenese style "Chito-Ryu".

"Ohhh Just Punch Them in the Face" is Just What They All Say

If your son or daugher, or even you perhaps, were to be attacked on the street, what would you do? Most people say "Oohh just punch them in the face!", but realistically, when you are attacked, most panic and don't think before they act. This is where karate can be a very useful skill, teaching you that brains come before braun and that technique can help you win fights. Karate not only teaches you how to defend yourself in dangerous situations but also teaches you hard work, patience, and allows you to escape from school stress. Enter the "dojo", where you can meet friends who have the same goals as you.

Why I Would Be a Great Teacher for Your Son or Daughter

I feel that I have a special connection with children while teaching, and I get along with children and other teens extremely well. Also, I am very educated and accomplished in the sports of karate and swimming, I am a very hardworking person and do not stop until the goal is achieved. It would be my pleasure to meet with you to discuss how I may help your son or daughter achieve their goals.
