I have been practicing karate for over 20 years, and 7 years training in Japan. I have studied several styles of karate over the years but my main influences are from Goju karate and Kyokushinkai. I started my karate training in 1994 when I joined a local Kyokushin club in Japan. Since then I have moved around, and have train in several styles.

 

I discovered Goju karate when the lads from Broseley did a demonstration at a Wado-ryu club I was training at in Shropshire. Since then I haven’t looked back and have now practiced Goju karate for 9 years. One of the reason I prefer Goju-ryu over other styles is because of its rich cultural history. Goju-ryu comes from Okinawa where karate is a way of life. It’s one of my life ambitions to visit Okinawa and train in one of the famous historical dojos.
