MRS JENNI MILLS

SENIOR INSTRUCTOR OF THE ARTS – 4TH DEGREE BLACK BELT

Jenni Mills is a Senior Instructor of the British Kenpo Karate Union and the Head of Success4Life Junior Black Belt School (the junior training arm of the BKKU) and has trained in American Kenpo for the past 36 years and taught for the past 31 years, having opened her first club in 1986 and achieving her 1st Degree Black Belt in 2000 (after taking a break from training/teaching to raise a family).   Jenni is also a qualified physical education instructor and has travelled and trained under many prominent Kenpo/Martial Arts Instructors throughout Europe and the USA, was a regular competitor in National Martial Arts Competitions, very early on in her Martial Arts Training where she won a great many titles and has attended, officiated and taught at several International Kenpo Tournaments, both at home in the UK and throughout Europe and the USA.   Jenni is a full time Instructor and teaches both adult and junior classes at the BKKU Headquarters in Exeter.    Jenni organises and runs the BKKU’s annual Martial Arts Summer Training Camp and when she isn’t teaching (which is rare!) she is continually working on the promotion, administration and all matters relating to the BKKU and Success4Life Junior Black belt School.   Jenni officiates at all BKKU and Success4Life Junior Black Belt School gradings and holds full coaching and liability insurance and enhanced CRB check status.   Kenpo and Martial Arts has been a huge part of my life from a very young age that I have been privileged to share with my husband, Kevin and through it I have been fortunate enough to travel extensively and meet some wonderful people along the way, some of whom have become lifetime friends. I am honoured to now be in a position of being able to pass on my knowledge and experience I have acquired over the years to our students, both young and old, all of whom have their own reasons and stories for learning a martial art and nothing gives me greater pleasure than to see them blossom and evolve into confidence, skillful and capable martial artists in their own right  and I hope to be able to continue to do this for many years to come. – JENNI MILLS
