WHAT GOT YOU INVOLVED IN MARTIAL ARTS

I have known Sensei Darren Barber for over 25 years and know how passionate he is about martial arts so when my son Luke said he wanted to learn Karate I knew exactly where to take him. After watching Luke excel in his Karate I thought I would start myself.

WHAT MARTIAL ARTS HAVE YOU STUDIED AND WHAT YEAR DID YOU START

I started boxing in1986 and Karate in 2019

TRAINING

I try to train on Mon, Wed, Thurs and do Karatabata on Tuesday. I also still do a bit of running.

ACHIEVEMENTS

I have run a number of half marathons over the years with my best time being 1 hour 30 mins at the Bupa Great North Run.

WHY CHOOSE KSD

KSD are passionate about what they teach. All of the instructors have a wealth of experience and knowledge.

FAVOURITE THING AT KSD

What I love about KSD is the family feel and the way you are made to feel welcome.

FUTURE

Concentrate on one grade at a time and hope my body will let me carry on for many more years!

AWAY FROM KARATE

I enjoy travelling, walking and socializing with family and friends

Sensei's Words 

Yes ive Know Brian a long time  , meeting through my old day job when i use to deliver to his place of work , we struck up a concersation during unloading about Martial arts and His Son Jake starting Ju Jitsu , a freidship was struck from the get go ..

Fast forward to Brians words above and his reason for starting with us , forgetiing friendships for now this is Sensei's words  , i can say to all its never too late to start training Brian is 51 and can hold hos own with many if not most , he is a inspiration to all his level of fitness is a credit to him and the effort he puts into class , his level of respect and thurst for learning is fantastic , its a real pleasure having Brian in class he is a credit to the Club , we look forward to helping him achieve all he wants from his Karate journey .
