David Grice has been actively involved in Sakura since his son Isaac started training 5 years ago. David is the Association Parent Liaison Officer.
Sakura Parent Liaison Experience
As a volunteer parent liaison officer, David's role is to act as additional interface between the parents and Sakura Karate Association. He has a wide range of experience in similar roles. Most notably he is currently an active parent governor at a federation of schools in Willenhall. This role sees David's direct involvement with safeguarding and child protection issues on a regular basis. In addition, safeguarding, keeping children safe in education and parent liaison have also been constants within his paid employment as a maths and English manager in a very large college for the last 10 years.
As a parent of a very active child and witness to the dangers of a sedentary lifestyle, David is passionate about ensuring that the experience children receive in sport is as positive as it can be and that this instils a lasting love of a healthy, active lifestyle.
