4th Dan Instructor - WSKO Technical Director

I have been learning the art of Shotokan since 1999. I started at a club in Cwmbach Aberdare under the Karate Union of Wales by Sensei Jayne George. 


On the 3rd October 2000 I joined the Ferndale Shotokan Karate School with Sensei Jason K. Ashcroft. We were his sixth school to open and in 2002 our name changed to Welsh Shotokan Karate Organisation. 


I had a break from 2002 – 2006. When I started back I achieved the trophy for 2007 best motivated and outstanding overall student for the WSKO. 


While mastering the skills of Shotokan Karate I have learnt integrity, modesty, confidence, to be direct, honest and a sense of humour, the ability to relate to different kinds of people and personalities. Most of all I found that special something that I was looking for “ A life dedicated to the discipline of Shotokan, a sense of calmness, a technique to aid in my understanding to all these great and inspiring qualities.” 


In September of 2010 I started doing my NVQ in coaching and took it very solemn. I am now a qualified instructor and grading examiner to the Welsh Shotokan Karate Organisation. To do this I had to be consistent, respect everyone on and off the mat. Care and concern for developing students and challenging them to improve and grow, the capability to communicate the Shotokan technique in such a way students can understand it, retaining enthusiasm and a sense of continued discover, to be honest, fair, and to accept other opinions without loosing my personal strength, self-awareness, wisdom, respect and dignity.
