Roberta Biagioni – 5TH Dan Instructor   

I started karate at the age of 26 and after 20 years I am now a 5TH Dan Instructor. I have in the past been awarded with Best Senior Student for my achievements at the Hombu Dojo at Fourways Martial Arts Academy.

I also achieved Top Overall Senior Student at the Academy for the following year.  I have received my Eastern Gauteng Colours for the last five years running. I have represented my Eastern Gauteng at SA Nationals championship each year since receiving my Colours. I have also been selected to represent South Africa at an international level since 2001.

Teaching Experience
 

I started teaching part time at Fourways Garden under the mentorship of Sensei Stef Biagioni. I also started the Fourways Garden Dojo on my own with one class, which has grown to three classes after four years being beginners, intermediate and advance. I became a full time instructor from 1st May 2004. I am a Senior Instructor of Fourways Martial Arts Academy. I teach classes around the Fourways, Bryanston and Sandton Areas
