East Coast Wado Karate Instructors
Martial Arts Club serving Sackville, Bedford and Hammonds Plains, NS
I have been training with East Coast Wado Karate for 18 years. I have achieved the rank of Sandan and Chief Instructor . I have had the privilege to have trained nationally and internationlly with the highest ranking Senseis in the Americas. Also had the opportunity to train with Sensei Wicks, World Chief Instructor.
I have served as President for East Coast Wado and currently Vice President. I sat as President and board member for Karate Nova Scotia.
I teach both kids and adults classes. Practising karate is a life long endeavour and I look forward to many more years.
I have been a student of karate for 10 years, all as a student of Sensei Jones at East Coast Wado. In 2015, I achieved Nidan, grading in front of Sensei Wicks in Toronto.
I have been instructing at East Coast Wado from early in my karate career - first as an assistant instructor and then as instructor for various levels from Red Belt up.
I truly enjoy instructing and see it as an integral part of my own learning - passing on what I have learned and learning from each and every student I teach.
I have been training in the Wado Ryu style under Sensei Kevin Jones for the past 13 years. I achieved my First Black Belt in 2015 and my Second Black Belt in 2018, both under Canadian Chief Instructor Ken Corrigan.
I primarily teach the youngest of our students, the Little Dragons, and tend to be the one running around and acting crazy. I’m also fortunate to help Sensei JF Charette with the other kids classes as well.
I'm honoured to have been President of the East Coast Wado Karate Club for the past 5 years. I have been the President of WIKF Canada for last 3 years. I have also been lucky enough to have held multiple other Executive Positions at East Coast Wado, including Vice President and Parent Liaison.
East Coast Wado is my second family and consider myself lucky to be part of this Club and Organization.
Welcome to East Coast Wado Karate Club!!!
I have been training in the Wado Ryu style of karate for over 13 years all under the instruction of Sensei Jones. In June 2018 I received my 3rd Dan Black Belt in front of Sensei Corrigan.
I have been instructing at East Coast Wado for many years. Currently I instruct our youngest students. Their energy and enthusiasm keep me energized for my own practice. It gives me great joy to see their confidence grow and to see them move from Little Dragons to the Kyu classes.
One of the things I love about karate is how you learn from the person that has gone before you, and those that follow learn from you.
