HOW DID YOU GET INVOLVED IN KARATE?

Pretty much in the same way many people did, saw martial arts films on TV & pretended to do all the fancy kicks at home & often practicing on younger brother!

There was a new Wado Ryu club in operation at the local community centre soI attended with my best friend and haven’t looked back since.

Over the years I have tried-out various Arts inc. Kung Fu, Taekwondo & Kick Boxing but admired that power evident in Karate & found that it provided me with the greatest challenge.

There can be no denying that the road to success isn’t a short one & isn’t without its challenges but the rewards can be endless for those who persevere.

I was honoured to be selected onto the National Squad, which is always an extra special achievement for people with conflicting priorities such as demanding careers & young families as was the case with myself.

I am very proud that I made the grade of excellence at a time England Karate & World Karate was at one of its strongest.

 

 

 

Whilst a member of the National Squad I traveled, trained, competed & socialised with many great Internationals such as: -

Wayne Otto OBE, Ian Cole, Paul Alderson, Willi Thomas, Toni Twins, Patricia Duggan, Augustus Paul, Terry Daley, Jason Ledgister, Tanya Weeks, Diane Riley, Mike Harris, Junior Campbell. Working with such elite individuals brought many benefits & allowed me to view their approach to karate in general & in particular to competition karate.

Karate has allowed me to visit many countries I might not have had to opportunity to see & provided life long friends & for this I am very grateful.

 

DISLIKES?

Weak techniques, bullies and people who exploit Martial Arts solely for personal gain

LIKES?

‘All rounders’ (Exponents of both Kumite & Kata) as well as music, fun & laughter, theatre, traveling, eating out and of course family time.

ASPIRATIONS?

Continue to learn & develop as an individual & to coach a future World/Olympic Champion

FAVORITE TECHNIQUE?

Close-line sweep (Winston William's special)
