Julia Turley is a karate Sensei and founder of Renshinkan England. Since 2002 she’s been teaching traditional karate full-time. Traditional karate is an ancient system of self-defence intertwined with philosophical virtues that are little found in the modern day. She’s completely committed to her community, sacrificing everything to get her team to Japan, where the international karate tournament is held. Her motivation comes from enriching children’s lives and building a strong community. She knows what it takes to be the best and she’s not afraid to bear it.
This short documentary shows how life is unique for each and every person. Not everyone’s journey has the same structure. Julia dismissed society’s expectations and chose to follow her calling and life’s mission. There’s no denying it’s been the right thing to do.
