OUR TEACHER
LYNNE

The Welsh Academy  of Martial Arts
was formed some 17 years ago by then Lynne Caddick
formerly known at Lynne Tolcher-James
 
Lynne is an NVQ Qualified Coach, N.V.Q Assessor and Internal Verifier within Martial Arts

   Lynne holds Black Belts in Karate and Kickboxing, Muay Thai and Freestyle Tae-Kwondo. A member of the British National Martial Arts Association, Combat Sports Worldwide, National Coaching Foundation,  Sports Coach UK, Coach Safe and the Vale and District Sports Council.
 
Lynne has had the honour of being part of the book entitled "The Young Martial Arts Enthusiast" , author Mr. David Mitchell and published by Dorling Kindersley.  
  
W.A.M.A. was formed owing to an attack on Lynne herself.  It was a violent attack and due to her knowledge was able to defend herself successfully.  She felt that due to her experience that she would like to help others who were unfortunate victims of violence etc., both female and male.  Thus the birth of the Welsh Academy of Martial Arts.  
  
Most of her female  students were victims of either rape  sexual abuse  domestic violence and muggings.  W.A.M.A. became a huge success virtually overnight.  Owing to this, her female students wished their children to become part of her organisation, teaching them self defence skills to give them a fighting chance if ever they were bullied at school or  attacked on the street.    
  
It is a sad time when we as individuals have to learn to defend ourselves, sometimes, even in our own homes.  Lynne has also been a victim of domestic violence and is happy that the law is now changing to help those victims who have been afraid to speak out.  
  
Owing to her success in the local community Lynne has unfortunately been a victim of discrimination. Being a female coach some of the male instructors  within martial arts have tried to cause many problems for her.  She has overcome this to continue with her coaching.  
  
Lynne has gained the respect of many martial arts organisations, and due to her dedication throughout her coaching career was nominated for the National Millennium Martial Arts Award in October 2000 for Excellence in Coaching.  She won this award with honours.
 
October 28th 2001 was another important day for Lynne as she was awarded The National Coaching Award
 for her contribution and developement of
martial arts in the United Kingdom.
