Chris has been training in Shito Ryu Karate for 10 years and has held the rank of 2nd Dan since 25th October 2009.

I started Karate when I saw Sale Dojo  advertised in school. Since then I’ve been doing karate for ten years now and  with the experience I’ve gained I hope to train for many more years to come. I  have learned a lot from a few instructors over the years including sensei Ian Swain,  sensei Danny Holloway and sensei Andrew Blake, teachers that continue to help me improve now.  Throughout my time doing Karate I have trained at Sale Dojo where I had learned  early on that I enjoyed Kumite. As a result I have improved my fighting skills  and have competed for English and Scottish titles, winning some along the way at  cadet and junior level. Recently I have gotten to the point where I now teach  both kids and adults. Being able to pass on what I know is good for me because  it means I have got to the point where I can give back to the club which, as for  any sport, is a big achievement. I can safely say that if I had never started  training I would not be the person I am today.  And for that I am truly grateful to the  instructors and students who have supported me all this time.”
