Sempai Niamh Callaghan

Team Leader

3rd KYU

When I started Karate at WadoKai Worcester my aim was the learn how to defend myself, but I quickly found out there was a lot more to karate than I first imagined. So much to learn and so much to remember. It was harder than I expected but now its the highlight of my week, I have made so many friends at the club along with having opportunities I never thought possible, before WadoKai Worcester I had never been abroad but in 2023 I flew to Germany to represent the county and won! 

I don't yet know what the future holds for me but I'm going to enjoy whatever comes next!


My Story

Sempai Niamh started her karate journey with WadoKai Worcester in January 2023, she came to Wadokai Worcester so that she could have the competition opportunities. Not only is Niamh now part of the county Squad and competing regularly but she has also become an inspiration to others. 

Niamh is one of our most improved members, coming to over 6 lessons a week, this girl really does put in the hours to get to where she is! Seeing how much Niamh has progressed is incredible and something every student should aspire to. This determination has lead to Niamh medalling at big competitions such as the North East Open and even coming second at her first international in Northern Ireland, April 2024. Niamh's eye for detail makes her a great coach for the future, 

Sempai Niamh is training under the position as Team Leader with WadoKai Worcester as she has demonstrated that not only is she a talented athlete but also a talented coach, helping take classes on a Tuesday and Wednesday!
