As a former England International competitor with a 15 year background as a nightclub and pub doorman, I value randori as the missing link between good competition karate and the ability to make it work in a real situation. When starting out I quickly found that I never wanted to be ‘tough’, I just didn’t want to be weak!

Understanding how to train for sparring is the key to enjoying safe sparring. Being ‘tough’ is something you are born with, knowing how to spar is a skill you can learn. I will be in the UK and available to run courses in your club during August so if you see one advertised come along and have some fun or better still, host your own course in your own club! PM for more details.
