Tomiko Mitsuoka Sensei 8th Dan
Chief Instructor

Tomiko Mitsuoka was born in Japan in 1948 and started the study of Shotokan Karate (JKA) in 1966 at the age of 18 years.

 

The initial purpose was to learn self defence as I was employed in a department store working long, late hours, I remember that it was not popular for ladies to study martial arts at that time and found it very difficult to join a dojo until my cousin who was a karate instructor introduced me to his sensei Hirano Sensei one of the original students of Master Funakoshi and one of the co-founders of the JKA. Read More

Sensei George Christodoulides 5th Dan

I was born in Kumasi in Ghana when my family was living in West Africa due to my father’s employment being based there. I started my martial arts training in 1973 when I was 12 years old and living in Nigeria.

 

I was first taught Judo at a local club in the state of Sokoto by a black belt 2nd Dan English man who also worked there. This was the Bruce Lee era!  His films were a great inspiration!  I am proud to say that I was very influenced by this talented and charismatic martial artist!  But I wanted to do more than Judo, I was interested in learning Karate!  Read More
