I am a Black Belt Renshi 6th Dan in Uechi Ryu (pronounced Way-Chee) which is an Okinawan Karate system that provides the student with a rounded fitness program for the body, mind and spirit. In the spring of 2003 during a 5 week visit to the Karate homeland of Okinawa I was awarded my 5th Dan and Shihan or Master Instructor’s Certificate for my efforts and teaching ability which is a very high honour. In November 2015 I returned to Okinawa and after a two week intensive training course I was promoted to Renshi 6th Dan

It is my intention now to share my years of experience with asmall numbers of dedicated martial artists who want to learn the system. Uechi Ryu (also called Shohei Ryu) will develop their self esteem as well as their capability to defend both themselves and their loved ones and continue to develop within them fitness and health well into old age.

I currently run a dojo just outside Maidstone in Kent. If you are based in or around Kent and are interested in learning a traditional Karate system, that is suitable for all ages and levels of fitness, then please get in touch either via email or by calling one of the telephone numbers provided in the Contacts page.

Thank you for visiting my site and I hope to hear from you soon.
