SIMON WEBB (1st Dan)
I started martial arts in 1976 with Shotokan Karate at Coalpit Heath, soon realizing through Kumite (sparring), that defense was the best attack. After moving to the Chalks Road Dojo, St George in 1978, I noticed men in skirts going to the upstairs Dojo. After watching my first Aikido Class, I was so impressed; I joined there and then at the tender age of 15. I haven’t looked back since!
Curtis Webb (1st Dan) Assistant Instructor
For as long as I can remember, my life has always been involved around Martial arts. From a young age I used to watch the old martial arts movies with my father. I did not have a great understanding of what martial arts were then, but I knew I really enjoyed watching these movies.
KEN ASHURST (1st Dan)
I first became interested in Martial arts in my early twenties. Wado-Ryu was the first style of karate I practised for about three years. I worked in Germany for five years, returning to my home town of Newcastle upon Tyne, work brought me to Bristol. I then started to train in Kick Boxing with Michael O’Connor “Highlander Kick Boxing”. I became a Blue Belt after about three years.
