Grace was always destined to be a part of the Xen-Do community from the day she was born. Why? Because when your uncle is Master Raf and your cousin is Sensei Anthony you haven’t got much choice in the matter. However, her path to Xen-Do was not as you might expect.
Originally from a small village in Kent, Grace only recently moved to London in order to read Human Resource Management at Middlesex University. She had never attended a kickboxing class before but the jump to city life is enough to whet anyone’s appetite for new experiences and Grace was no different.
With some not so gentle persuasion from certain family members, she partook in her first group class and never looked back. She has loved training ever since and so jumped at the opportunity to combine her studies with some on the job experience.
It’s ideal for me. I get on the job experience in a successful business which helps my studies and I get to train in the best martial arts club in London. Don’t believe me? Come and try a class!Grace Hume-Nieto
In her spare time, Grace is a keen creative writer and journalist and spends free time practising her writing skills in her many journals.
