I began training in 1981. I started teaching in 1995. I took over the club in 1999, and have been a full-time Karate teacher since 2001. This hasn't been the fastest route, but a journey into a subject I never tire of. Exploring the historical, philosophical, and of course the physical sides of The Way of the Empty Hand.
We treat our martial art as a method of self-defence and not as the modern sport, and our research trips to Japan and Okinawa have led to some wonderful teachers and friendships.
Myself and the instructors who assist me would be pleased to have you along for the journey.
Karate can be a complex subject. All clubs and styles offer something a little different. Our approach is to encourage a relaxed and sensitive body ennabling our students to use the attacker's energy to their advantage. We believe overt power and domination are not the most effective ways to deal with confrontation. It's all about remaining calm under pressure and using your body effectively.
