Paula - Marketing Director

Paula is Matt’s sister & has worked for Samurai Kickboxing almost as long as Matt! She works in the UK office looking after the Marketing but has historically been involved with every aspect of the business from finance, helping out at events, undertaking HR duties & communicating with the schools. Without Paula, Samurai Kickboxing would not be where it is today. She has been pivotal to the growth of the business & keeping her brother in check!

Pre-children, Paula worked in an Incentives & Events Agency doing a number of roles ranging from Incentive Specialist to Marketing Manager.

She has 3 boys who have all learnt kickboxing with Matt.

Paula is her happiest in the sunshine, on a beach with her family & 2 Border Terriers, Jasper & Oscar.
